My first Linux OS is Ubuntu after accidentally install it using wubi. But my main Linux OS is none other than Linux Mint. Julia was my first, and now I am using Katya. (Linux Mint 11). I have to admit that my laptop is quite old(2009), so only Mint can offer me stability and compatibility.
Don’t get me wrong, I still use Ubuntu and its a great OS. But if you read Mint blog, I was so touched that they even display 1 dollar donor. This is to show that they are really thankful. That is why I decided to donate from my PayPal account. Its easy to donate from PayPal, just provide your PayPal email account and PayPal will do the rest. I do get some money from links selling on my blog, so a dollar or two to donation is not much.
My point here is that, if you like and use Linux Mint or other Linux OS, remember that you use it for free. The development team work hard for it. They have to pay for programmer, developer and hosting. Donate a dollar or more to them will help them to continue provide this great OS for free in the future.
So if you think you have some extra money to donate to them, just go to Linux Mint and share some love. You will get a lovely banner to impress your friends like I did : ).
There are a lot free Blackberry App such as BBM, Facebook, Twitter and Yahoo Messenger. But still if you want to try premium blackberry app, there are a lot of them. You can buy it using your PayPal account. Just provide your username and password and they will charge your account. You can also buy using your card credit.But I do not recommend it.
You can search Top 25 paid Apps in Blackberry App World. But before you decided to buy it. Please read the reviews first. Is it worth it or not ? (more…)
This entry only can be made when I have enough money in my PayPal to withdraw.That is why it takes so LONG : )
Actually I promised to write entry on Cash Out money from PayPal to Maybank account more than a year ago. I have to wait until I have enough money to show you guys. Hehehe. Just kidding! I did transfer USD 50 to my Maybank account. but totally forget to update about it.
First you must add local bank accounts (saving or current) to your PayPal account. Its easy if you follow the step. There are slightly different between cash out money from PayPal to Credit/Debit Card and to your Local Bank Account. (For my example here I use Maybank account).
1. Cheaper – Its cheaper to withdraw money to your local bank than your card. PayPal will charge you RM 20 if you use your card. If you transfer money to Bank Account more than RM 400 it will be FREE and RM 3 for less than RM 400.
2. Save Time– 2-3 working days for Bank account and up to one week to transfer money to your card.
Conclusion : Save time and money to transfer money from PayPal to your local bank account. (more…)
Just a few days ago, my friend in India asked me to help him to purchase a software to encrypt his PHP code.
He told me that his credit card is not valid to purchase the software. He said there is rumors that some merchant don’t accept credit card from India. He offers to pay me using PayPal.
So I just followed his instruction on how to purchase the software. On the last page for payment option, I saw PayPal button. I thought he might want to scam me. So I explained my findings. To his surprise , he said that he cannot find any PayPal option on the website.
Instead he gave me his PayPal user id and password. At first i was quite reluctant since he had to give his PayPal details to me. He replied that he only have a few buck, so it will be no problem. So in the end, I just use his PayPal to pay the software.
I am not sure why there is no PayPal option on his side. Maybe its true may be not. Either way you should be careful and double check. Actually I was willing to pay since the amount is only USD 20 plus I barely know him. He is just my online friend.
So will you pay for your online friend ? 🙂
