Into the Black

We had a lovely mild day today, apparently putting us in the lucky minority, as a severe winter storm has socked most of the country. We're supposed to get some of it tomorrow, but even then, apparently it will be thunderstorms, and not snow, like elsewhere. This certainly has been the mildest November I can recall.

Mild Links! Thanks Mike Martinez and Ant.

Dangit. The Dallas Clark videos are both gone from Roosterteeth. I do hope someone gets a copy up on Youtube soon. I wanna know what all the fuss is about!

Well, it seems the original video is up on Youtube, but I can't find the "Director's Cut":

Yeah, the humidity has been around 96% here. It's also been raining off and on. I've taken advantage of it by wearing sandals to class, but with that front moving through the midwest, I'll probably go back to packing coldweather gear in the car. Other than that, it's been kind of nice around here, albeit wet and stuffy.

Some asshat this morning decided to blowup Ms. Spears' recently revealed recklessness and tape them up in the male restrooms at school (at least in the arts and humanities building). You know, as unflattering as the shots are and as probably deserving as Spears is of it, it's still not something you want to see in the morning.

Im building a new commercial site (ill show you guys as I think you will like it) (Its better than my energy blog!) and was wondering if anyone has had any experiance with billing customers from a website and with recurring billing...

Nice work on the energy blog... I like it.

PayPal is always one option for online payments, but there have been numerous horror stories about them, for example they tend to freeze your account if you are paid with a stolen credit card. But on the positive side there are many pre-built web shopping carts that work with PayPal and will do what you want:

Personally I have sold stuff on eBay for 4 years and have had one problem with PayPal regarding a refund. But YMMV or course.

I want to accept all major credit cards, and with customers agreement, I want to bill them each month differeing amounts depending on how much they owe (it will vary by month).

I would love to use Google Checkout, but for intangible goods they want my biz to be a certain type (which im not).

If anyone has had any direct (or indirect) experiance with this I would love to hear your thoughts/opinions, thanks!

Who ever did that voice over is a retard. You do not land on your hand first, unless you want to break it. The hand is just a guide so you hit the shoulders/upper back properly.

That is why it is posted here, and not in the actual news section.

The Wii superglue story is from BBspot....

BBspot produces a variety of features like fake news stories satirizing the tech and political worlds, the BBspot Mailbag which pokes fun at the Believers (people who believe our fake news) and much more.
