I posted this in a thread on the OT, but it bears repeating.
Beware if you are purchasing any type of digital product; apps, songs, services such as iphone unlocking, etc. and use paypal.
They won't go to bat for you. I found this out the hard way after 2-3 months of haggling.

| Tech Board|| Is HTML5/responsive design killing Java and Flash? - CAD703X on 7/24/14 at 9:24 am|
Even though 99% of android development is in java and its still pretty popular for servers, on the PC its another matter entirely.
Flash is still hanging on by the skin of its teeth, but the java plugin is just unecessary and is as shitty a plug-in as it was 15 years ago. way to go sun.

spent 20 minutes discussing how he made 50 million in gambling/poker wins. clarified this was NET after taking into account wins & losses.
said he doesnt need a hoodie or sunglasses to hide his tell and amateurs don't stand a chance because they don't realize how subconscious their tells are.

Here's a screengrab from both my phone & PC. There is no way to associate your own image for an artist on the PC so i probably have 20 or more that are blank but for some reason when looking on my android..they all have some type of image.

In seeing the comments about Carrabas below, I want to point out a restaurant doing the exact opposite.
This place is very reasonable; prices are between $8 and $20 for just about any entree...and the kicker is that they don't just give you a doggie bag..but every entree you purchase allows you a...
