I use PayPal both in my business and for personal financial transactions because it is so easy to use, especially compared to a credit card. With PayPal I can checkout with just my email and password, however with a credit card I need to supply much more information:
So just from a pure typing viewpoint using PayPal will save you time over using a credit card with every use.
Is PayPal perfect? No. Just today I received a $400 payment, so I logged in and planned to transfer that money into my bank account but was greeted with an odd sight because my balance should’ve said $400, instead it showed no balance:
I’ve never seen this bug before, so I went looking for support and a phone number to call:
I was on hold for just a few minutes and then the support person listened to my bug report, acknowledged that it was a real bug and that PayPal engineers were working to fix the bug, so I just get to wait for my account balance to appear again.
After one day of patiently waiting the techs at PayPal have fixed the bug and my account balance is now correct. See, patience is a virtue..Tags: bug, PayPal
99.9% of the time that I install yet another Microsoft update I really don’t see or notice any change or improvement, because they are just security updates however yesterday my Outlook for Mac 2011 was updated and it actually solved a big issue for me.
I have multiple email accounts and use Outlook to manage all of them, and I receive many emails every day that I just need to quickly read then delete. After a while I have thousands of emails in my deleted folder. When I would want to permanently remove these deleted emails I would find the folder, then choose Delete. Outlook would start to delete them then crash after deleting only a dozen or so messages. Not friendly.
After the latest update I can now permanently delete hundreds or thousands of email from my Deleted Items without a crash.
Thank you Microsoft for fixing a bug in Outlook that helps me.Tags: bug, fix, Outlook
My new WordPress site uses several useful plugins and I’ve enjoyed having Easy Nivo Slider on my Home page to rotate four Posts, however with the WordPress 3.2.1 update this plugin plain stopped working.
That simple hack made Easy Nivo Slider start working again.
Hopefully the author will read the Forums, find the bug, fix it, and I can get an officially updated and supported plugin.
In the meantime my Home page is working with a sequence of four rotating images that can be clicked.Tags: bug, Easy Nivo Slider, hack, plugin, WordPress
