Re: Community Chat 5/2

Hi everyone!

 

Funny you should ask that when I am jumping in to say hi from home! I'm trying to kick this sinus nastiness, and the distance from my bed to the laptop is just about what I can manage. If I could trust Swype and my fingers to cooperate, I'd be truly lazy and log in from my Android smartphone.

 

For my regular online activities - I love my smartphone, but sometimes the mobile version of a site isn't robust enough. For that, I revert back to my enormous laptop to get the full websurfing experience.

I admit I still default to my monster PC for online gaming.  But hey, it's one decked out tower, so... yeah, I still use it.  Smiley Happy  And, it keeps the kids off my tablet! Smiley Wink

Re: Community Chat 5/2

Hi everyone,

 

I prefer to use my home PC still.  I like seeing all the information on a big screen.  I use RSS feeds heavily.  I've heard a lot of people aren't using RSS as much anymore and using things like twitter and facebook to monitor news and blogs.  I just find RSS easier to organize and keep track of what I have read.

Frank -  While I agree with you that RSS can provide some handy convenience, I no longer track anything on my home PC or laptop.  Instead I use mostly widgets and apps via my tablet and phone, which collate stories from the various news sources I'm interested in.  If there's anything that can't be pulled in by the methods I use, they usually have an email or RSS option that I do still employ.  However, I'm able to remove more and more sources from those lists everyday, and one day, I hope to be able to have a complete multimedia center right there on my tablet and be freed from email completely in that respect Smiley Happy

But you could use widgets and apps that pull your RSS feeds. Then you wouldn't have to setup each widget/app with your favorite blogs/sites.  I use one RSS aggregator and just link that with any apps I use.  I also manage all my podcasts via RSS too. Smiley Happy

Oh, I know.  I haven't been able to find an app that will pull everything I need yet, though.  Smiley Sad We're getting really close though!

I Need Help Please!? I am new to paypal

Re: I Need Help Please!? I am new to paypal

Hi Daniel_new2This,

 

Welcome! Smiley Happy

 

Did you cancel the subscription on the merchant's website or on PayPal?  If you haven't cancelled on the PayPal website, I recommend doing that as well.   Instructions for canceling are here.

 

PayPal subscriptions do not have any automated system to facilitate moneyback guarantee agreements with a merchant. When a subscription is cancelled, it prevents any further payments from being debited by that merchant.  A refund would still need to be issued by the merchant as normal for any subscription payments that had already been sent in the past.  Once a refund has been issued, you would be able to see a record of that refund right away in your PayPal account.

 

I recommend checking the merchant's website or contacting them directly to see if they have a process to request the money back guarantee.

 

I hope this helps. Smiley Happy
