        \_ I applied for the PayPal settlement and today I got my
           paycheck. $13.59. It's about time big corporations pay
           for their incompetent and inconvenience to us little
           guy. It is my pleasure to cash in $13.59. Fuck you Paypal.

1/18    I own a bunch of NFLX stocks bought at several different periods
        (from high $200 all the way down to $80). I dumped a few and
        still have a few. Why the hell is Reid Hastings still making
        $500,000/year? How do I join the pending NFLX Class Action

1/14    I'm an eBay power seller. In the past couple months I've had
        a bunch of people claiming that they never received their items
        and they're all from the AL, MO area. I'm going to start adding
        tracking (75 cents more) which will eat up my profit margin
        significantly since the items I sell are really cheap (sub $10
        and $5 items and eBay+PayPal are already eating up 10% of fees).

12/31   SOMEONE PLEASE FIX KEG!  Why does it keep crashing?
        \_ It's hard to tell. The risk of crashing seems to increase with
           disk activity, or so it seems, but debugging the kernel doesn't
           seem to yield much info. Email root for detailed info; I don't
           have a deep understanding of the problem --t

8/25    A guy wants to buy my domain name using http://escrow.com. Are they
        shady or are they decent, compared to PayPal?
        \_ http://escrow.com is legit. I would not use any other escrow site.
           \_ I just used it, and it's REALLY FAST and simple to use
              unlike (#**$(# PayPal. So far so good, will let you know --op

3/5     My gf was a victim of an ebay scam. She bought a high priced item
        from a "reputable" seller and the item never arrived nor has
        the seller responded to emails. What legal actions can she
        take against the seller to reclaim her money? She has filed
        a complaint with ebay but ebay doesn't offer any protection.

2/8     When do we usually get the 1099-INT from PayPal? It's already
        February and I still don't have mine.
        \_ If you got less than $10 in interest, you don't get a 1099-INT.
           But since PayPal is a money market fund, it's probably a
           1099-DIV. I'm not sure what the rules are on that.

11/1    Intelligient writeup of Google's OpenSocial platform by Marc
        Andreesen: http://blog.pmarca.com/2007/10/open-social-a-n.html
        I got a chance to start working with OpenSocial before the public
        release as part of my job at Slide, and it's been a pleasure to work
        with.  If you're looking for an interesting new platform to hack on,
        I'd suggest giving OpenSocial a look.  Incidentally, Slide is hiring.

10/3    Paypal is paying 5.21% interest rate, much higher than my
        checking/savings/money market accounts. It's a little less than
        my CDs (Countrywide and Indymac at 5.50%), but it's very liquid
        and very convenient.  \_ Paypal also has an ichy trigger finger
        about locking down
