The Spam Thread!
Hmm, that didn't happen for me. Maybe because I'm not an U.S. user?

Right. It was some sort of law passed this last April which requires payment companies in the USA to verify the identities of their users. I first went through the standard verification procedure which was fairly standard. But it must not have been good enough since I now have to send in proof of my identity in a form of my photo ID, a random bill that has a proof of my mailing address, and my social security card.

All of that sounds like a privacy invasion scheme, but I double checked the web address and yep, it's coming from the real PayPal servers.

I can still send money to people I buy things from, but may as well start scanning those things so I can upload them and send them securely to PayPal online. The only other option is to fax them over, and we don't have a fax machine in our house.

I don't call them 7.1 at all. 7.1 means driving 7 speakers and a subwoofer. If it's only two speakers, it's not 7.1. Software tricks or not.

I wish paypal would just do that with Malaysians now. Because PayPal actually tags accounts as authenticated and there are obnoxious sellers out there who refuses to sell to accounts that are not. I've been denied off earlier G3 ponies because the sellers just refuse to sell to accounts that are not authenticated.

Here are the things I ordered off eBay lately:

Three different video games....
-Awesome Possum Kicks Dr. Machino's Butt - A game for the Sega Genesis by Tengen. Many people say this is a horrible game with annoying sound and poor gameplay. The latter may be true, but...I can't shake it. I think this game is very cute, even if it has an anvilicious environmental message attached.

-Cool Spot - No, it's not Spot the dog. This game is based on a soda pop called "7up". In the 90s, they had a mascot called 'Cool Spot', which happened to be the red dot between the 7 and UP in the logo. They apparently had a cool looking and well received platform game for the SNES released in the early 90s. (I really missed out on a LOT of SNES games while growing up)

-Beethoven: The Ultimate Canine Caper - Another SNES game, and another game others consider horrible. I will see for myself soon. (this is based on the film "Beethoven's 2nd")


And here is the best acquisition...

"FC Mobile" handheld NES game system!

I actually purchased the first model of the console, not the second one. I think the first model looks nicer. It's the typical NOAC Famiclone, but in a nice looking handheld with a 2.5 inch LCD sceen.

Now I need either an FC-16 Go or a SupaBoy portable SNES. But those cost far more than an FC Mobile at the moment.

Things have gone wrong.

Apparently, a new MLP game has came out for iOS.

Problem is, apparently it's iOS6 only1- my iPad's app store isn't showing it.

I don't mind the world ending now. I can't afford a new iPad, and am not qualified for a loan at the moment due to hefty credit card debts.

Either that or it's US-only

Edit: Okay, so they clarified it with me- it's not released yet. But is it going to support iOS5 when it gets released? Cry

Never mind me saying boring week. This wee is a bad week. Things did not go as I have expected, and I now feel as if the world is falling apart.

Some things are still not unfolded yet,though. I'll hope for the better, or brace myself for the worse.

I'm currently using Google Chrome with Lilly, and I am not experiencing the same login issue that I get while using Safari on the Incapsula protected board.

Strange.
