A open letter...

Dear US-based Sellers Of Useful Mac Applications But Most Especially The Makers Of Coda (and, incidentally, builders of one of the most beautiful websites around),

I really want to buy your applications, I do. But I do not have a Visa, MasterCard or Amex. I know, I know, but unfortunately I am with a shite Scottish bank and am not in a situation in which I can change over to another at present.

If you will accept neither Switch/Maestro nor PayPal, I cannot buy your applications. This frustrates me. Please, in the name of all that's unholy, could you not at least take PayPal?

Regards,

DK

Since you've tried in vain to legally purchase a copy, would you feel terribly guilty downloading it for free?

I’ve been trying to nail down my local MEP’s on their voting records and was pointed to the following

You can access this information by following these steps:

1. go to http://www.europarl.europa.eu/activities/introduction.do?language=en
2. click on ‘plenary’
3. click on ‘resolutions and positions’
4. then search by date for the particular text you are interested in
5. click on the day you are interested in and select the ‘PV’ tab in the top right hand corner
6. scroll down to the bottom of the page and the results of votes and the roll call votes that were taken that day are available to read.

It’s a dark art & dependent on knowing what you are looking for. Does anyone have a better way of accessing this info?

Paypal are crooked bastards. One use of ther poxy system and they've been trying to charge fantasy purchases to my card for six months, my bank fortunately doesn't let them. Fuck them and anybody stupid enough to use them.
