Of course the thing about PayPal is that it costs :-( But I must say I suspect the ~50p or whatever wouldn't be too big a deal - especially as a stamp costs half that already. I would like to see RO dealers etc follow the example set by a few (e.g. MWSoftware) and provide online payment systems.

hzn: "Nothing wild so far but here is the crazy part: The Scottish bank refused to honour a check of one of their customers since that cheque was written in Euro." Huh? What's wild about that? The bank account is in Sterling - why on earth would the bank honour a cheque made out in Euros? Would you expect them to honour it if it was in dollars? or yen? or bolivianos?

"Sending CC card details via email can be done like this in a relative safe manner" I know little about encryption, except that this is not it! I suspect it would be easy for any dedicated cracker to find the info hidden like this. I am also certain that if you mentioned it to your bank, they would simply laugh in your face. So I wouldn't recommend this to people!

  • Midland Christmas show this Saturday
    The Midland Christmas 2008 RISC OS show is fast approaching - pencil Saturday, December 6 in your diaries. For the organisers, the Midlands User Group, this is a big challenge. While they co-organised the last one with the ARM Club, the organisation for this year's event has been primarily a MUG affair.
