  • Something To Think About

    By Ed Ladendorf on Wednesday, August 01, 2001 - 01:04 pm:

    After making a donation to RetouchPro, I received a message from Amazon.com telling me that the charge to my debit card had been refused by the bank, and I could either contact the bank or enter another card number. Since my wife's card number was already on file at Amazon, I decided to use it, initially. I went back to the site, and entered my card (not hers), and the donation went through. But I kept wondering why the first attempt didn't make it. Then I realized that my wife's billfold had recently been stolen, and she called to stop further payments on her card. She was issued a new card, but failed to update the information at Amazon.com. So if any of you have cards on file somewhere but they're no longer valid, now's a good time to make the necessary changes. That's my good deed for the day .

    Food for Thought

    Thought I would share with you all a quote I recently stumbled upon:

    "Image quality is not the product of a machine, but of the person who directs the machine, and there are no limits to imagination and expression." --Ansel Adams

    I printed it out and taped it to the bottom of my monitor--just as a reminder.

          amanda,

          yours reminds me of duke ellington's: "if it sounds good, it is good". DJ has mentioned a visual variant of that.

          and doug, i was afraid yours was going to turn out to be that one about it you love something turn it loose and if it comes back yada yada shoot it. i'm glad it wasn't, much nicer indeed.

          what is heul?

            Credit/Debit card fraud
            by Ed_L
            There was some talk recently about security problems with internet explorer. I'm not sure if that was the problem or not, but someone got my wife's debit card number. There was a charge of $36.19 that we didn't use the card for. A trip to the bank, and a call by customer service found that it was charged...

            A well-meaning friend has been telling me (repeatedly)(over and over)(and over again) that this website (not counting forums) needs a serious facelift. He insists that the current design will hold back progress.

            Are people visiting for a while, then leaving?

            After looking through quite a few posts, it seems there were several people who came for a while, then quit coming (but maybe I'm wrong). If this *is* the case, I wonder if it would help to post new challenges more often. Of...

            Okay, I finally got the link to work. I removed my wife from a photograph, and put her into more of a portrait setting. Positive and negative feedback are acceptable, although negative feedback is what I really need. I'm here to...
