I like the sound of that.

Yeah it's a pity, because PayPal is so darned easy to use... oh hang
on, that's why they charge a bit :P I'm gonna put PayPal onto a
website I'm helping out (with my limited skills!) so they can get a
functioning payment gateway very quickly. Down the track I've
suggested they do something more complicated which costs less - and is
probably beyond my current skill set (:

FWIW I'm not a big fan of the financial status in email signature
idea, but not gonna hang my hat on it. You've ranted a bit there eh
