It’s become a bit of an annual tradition for me to review my year. And it’s also a bit of a tradition for me to leave it quite late! I guess this process is a little self-indulgent, in truth, I’m so frantic most of the time that’s it’s a great opportunity to take stock and remind myself of all the incredible experiences I had in 2011. So here goes…
Unless I set up bank accounts in every country I do business in I have no choice but to use PayPal with your service. I don’t want to stop seeing you but then I don’t want PayPal either. It’s me or the dog.
You and I have had a mostly happy relationship over the years. Sure, your content editor looks like it’s from the 90s, but that doesn’t matter to me. I’ve grown to love your cheery orange masthead, and large friendly typeface.
But now, it might finally be over. It’s just not working.
It’s not me, it’s you.
You might have noticed that people are having trouble with PayPal lately, especially event organisers. I’ve had my own fair share of trouble with them – on my recent US tour, they started refusing good credit cards for no reason.
So, understandably, I stopped using PayPal and wanted to use your credit card processing instead. I was a little worried that I wouldn’t get the money til after the event, but you thoughtfully set up advanced payments for me.
But disaster struck!
So I have no choice – either I set up bank accounts in every country I do business in, or I have to use PayPal. And frankly I’d rather stab myself in the face with a fork.
So this really could be it. Farewell my breezy orange friend. It’s been fun.
Register your interest, and I’ll give you the chance to buy tickets before anyone else.
I posted about this a while ago, but it’s taken Aral a little while to get the videos together.
So here it is : me coding a kind of Angry Birds type thing in Corona live at the Update conference. Enjoy!
