Journal: Lock Paypal with 1 Easy Step: Access it with Opera Mini

Journal by crazyjeremy
If you have a significant amount of money in your Paypal account you should know just how easy it is to lose access to it, and how hard it is to get it back. Simply checking your Paypal Account Via Opera Mini can automatically lock your account. To Paypal Security it looks like an out of country hack from Norway via an anonymizer. In fact, it's Opera's Transcoder attempting to compress data being delivered to your device. http://www.evolvingoffice.com/2008/10/29/the-dangers-of-using-opera-mini-to-access-paypal/ Opera's own site tells you there is no end to end security when using Opera Mini to access Paypal. Their transcoder sees it all and Paypal obviously doesn't like that.

Once locked, it's not necessarily possible to unlock it through the traditional web verification tools, it may stay locked until you call Paypal as their web tools for unfreezing your assets are outdated.

Journal: How to pick the best Shopping Cart system for Linux server.

Journal by crazyjeremy
It's finally time for me to break down and get a shopping cart system working on my server. It runs CentOS, PHP 4.4.2 and MySQL 4.1.21.

1. I need a cart system that can take a credit card payment. I realize I will probably need to sign up with a company and have monthly fees.

2.Also, I have a list of binary objects that have a specific value (like a stock photography or ebook site) and I want to be able to sell each one for a specific price. It would be ideal if the cart could read a table and take a value for objects based on what that table said it should be. In other words, instead of manually feeding the cart the specific price for every object, I would like to simply pass the cost for the binary data and it's unique id, then the cart would charge the visitor appropriately.

Is this possible, or am I going to wind up putting 12,000 items into a cart system by hand?

Journal: Clinton Raises $7.3Billion To Fight Poverty & Global Warming 1

Journal by crazyjeremy
Bill Clinton hosted a conference "on world problems". By the end of the three-day Global Initiative which included celebrities, Corporate America types and world leaders the former president raised $7.3 Billion in pledges.

"The Earth is warming at an alarming rate, we are running out of fossil fuels, and it is long past time for us to take action to correct these problems," Clinton said. "This is also a tremendous opportunity and there are countless good new jobs to be created in the field of green energy."

Apparently Former World Bank President James D. Wolfensohn will serve as the fund's managing director and Clinton will serve as a senior adviser. Where should Clinton and Wolfensohn start spending this cash to fight these world problems?
