Ugh, PayPal. If that's the only way to donate, I'll try to dig out my PayPal set-up, or get my partner to do so. Give me a couple of days.

How do you do life without paypal? I use it weekly at least! haha

In Australia, most payments are made by credit card over a secure server. I remember reading that the US and some other countries are more at risk of credit card fraud because of something the banks do, or don't do, I can't remember what exactly.

I don't use eBay or have a Facebook account either. I'm practically, like, off the grid, man. :D

Oh. :eek:. Maybe I avoid those sites.

The credit card issue with the US is real, I'm not just being anti-American. This article is from 2011 but it jogged my memory. I read a more recent one about what different countries' credit card details are worth on the black market, due to the likelihood that they've already been mined.

American credit- and debit-card data are usually stored unencrypted on a magnetic stripe on the back of each card, which thieves can easily and cheaply copy. The U.S. and some nonindustrialized countries in Africa are among the only nations still relying on magstripe payment cards, which came into wide use in the 1970s. China has announced that it will no longer produce or accept such cards after 2015; American travelers are already finding that their cards aren’t accepted at some gas stations, parking facilities, subways, and merchants in Europe. The European Central Bank has recommended that banks stop issuing magstripe cards after 2012.

Most other countries are shifting to what are known as EMV “smart cards” (the acronym comes from Europay MasterCard Visa). Smart cards use multiple layers of security, starting with a computer chip in each card that stores and transmits encrypted data and a unique identifier that can change with each transaction.

Look the recording gear is under my staircase in some Harry Potter kind of hiatus but that doesn't mean it could be brought out into the daylight

I'm making another shameless call for donations.

If you're a fan of the site please consider contributing a few gold bullion, since we're having some issues with our other revenue streams right now.

You can send paypal donations to [email protected]

I hope PayPal don't freeze your account again as I put the description as "to help bring up our lovechild". Haha

Yes I am very over frozen accounts right now.

You'll notice that no ads are being displayed on BBB right now.

Hence the call for donations to keep us afloat.
