last night in review [Sep. 21st, 2000|02:19 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
evening plans didn't go as ... um, planned. but came back home with chuck and a bunch of people were here ... the regular wed. night party crew. at night watched The Fifth Element and dealt with mail.

i sent out mail yesterday to a bunch of LiveJournal people begging for them to get paid accounts--- trying to raise $10,000 for new servers. so far we've got over $2,000. not bad at all. a lot of mail to deal with though. :-)

Re: hmm

Funny, but I don't see anyone holding a gun to your head to make you use this thing, nor is anyone forcing you to pay for it. Instead of being an abusive little shit, maybe you could actually try showing some appreciation to all the people who have worked on this thing for so long without getting one red cent in return.

Re: hmm

Wow! After a bit of research, I see that the various parts of that sentence were broken up into several journal entries spanning about a half hour... not quite 3 days, congratulations.

I don't get why you're pissed though... you don't have to pay anything if you don't want to. I guess the goal is just to generate as many comments as possible?

Re: hmm

$25 is more than reasonable, and as soon as PayPal Accept international Payments, i'll being sending some money brads way
(can you mail all international users when this feature is availible?, at the moment, its a case of , i have money, i want to give you money, but paypal wont let me give you money, damm them)

But as to the wonderful person who decided that they could buy as they put it a $2 scrapbook for their journal, why dont the go and do that, i see no point in making a post like that, except to irritate others and prove what a leech on life they are..

Re: hmm

credit card is easier.. you dont want to spent 2-3 dollars buying a postal check and 1-2 dollars on postage.. and finally find out that brad could cash into his bank acc. because its a foreign check / money order.

As for cc.. he can have the cash immediatly ;-) and safe too.. I will be paying asap when paypal goes intl. next month

Re: hmm

Why Brad doesn't just go and ban/delete someone like this is beyond me. You have power, use it! Revenge is the only true justice!

heyyyyy

I don't usually sign up or buy things from strangers over the internet, but your email brought a tear to my eye (ok, well not really)
but i think your cause is worthy - even if i only post comments to other journals and not write in my own journal (yet)

get rid of the lag.... send in money

Brad, Servers and whatnot

Brad,
wondering if there is anything in addition to subscribing that someone could do to support this process.

I happen to have a wee few years of experience with these sort of technical issues, and a few contacts in the hardware procurement industry, which might be helpful.

I live in seattle, feel free to drop me an email if there is anyway I could be of service. (would send you one, but as you said, you are a little slammed email wise)

Re: intresting..

the word is spelled "Interesting"

your pathetic attempt to communicate did not garner my comment, I was responding to a post by Brad, if you notice I did not click the "reply to this" link, but instead the "post a new comment" link.

Personally, and I don't think I will make an another exception in your case, I choose not to argue or even hold discussions with people of dubious and most likely inadequate genetic material.

However I thought a slight correction worthwhile.

Just gotta wait until payday.

$25 seems *more* than fair, for what we're getting.
