Yes it has been.
I apologize for that just me and computers don't get along very well. Emfs really bother me.
That's too bad about the rental stuff. I thought it was a great idea. It's pretty important to me that they get this so I'll buy it for them.
Thanks for all you do.

Greetings!!...I signed up for the 177 hrs of 2017 PDC and ATC...and have now determined that the internet connection here in BFE east TX where I am sheltering in place...just can’t support streaming anything...AARGH!!

So much for the great idea of learning all of that good info while I can’t leave the farm!!

Might I either put my order on “hold” until this zombie apocalypse is over so I can get back to civilization...or get a refund and I’ll sign up again later??—providing IF this will still be offered at a later date....??

I just did a search for "will amazon refund video rental"

And google says:

You can get your money back on an accidental Amazon Video video rental or purchase as long as you don't start watching it and cancel within 24 hours of buying it.



So you bought your rental 14 days ago and I can see that you watched more than a few minutes.  

......

From my perspective ....   I thought we would do all the work to make rentals happen and then there would be hundreds of people renting and it would be all autopilot stuff.  Instead it has been just a handful of people and ... because I make myself so available, lot of people want to talk about lots of variations.

Oof.

So now I need to figure out what our policy is for this odd circumstance.  It seems that industry standard for this case is to say "no".  

Further, refunds are so rare that our system has no refund mechanism built in.   I have to do it all manually - and it takes a while.

...   how about this:  I shut down your rental and give you an epub copy of my new book?

Hello! I purchased this and now cannot get back to the watch link despite trying both of my accounts and both desktop and phone. Any suggestions or other ways I could try?

Hey Paul, this is still not working for me... I even tried to buy it again and it said you already purchased. Help, please take my money!

I did some research.

I discovered that my previous analysis to try to solve your problem was errant.  What you bought was Permaculture Voices 1, 2 and 3 117 hours of video.

Hi there,

I have been checking out the permies ecosystem for a few days now and want to get the PDC/ATC courses!

Is there any chance you would accept cryptocurrencies? Would rather avoid my personal information going through Paypal.

Please and thank you for the amazing efforts, hope to attend in person one day soon.

Crypto has been weird.  So far, people have sent bitcoin, but connecting the coin to the person has been a little weird.  One of these days it would be good to set something up.

Which crypto do you have in mind?

It can be a little weird, I am happy to show you some self-hosted crypto payment server that makes it easy to create invoices for people. There's a few I have in mind, I'll do a proper introduction with more info through email!

Funny, after so many years I hear that name again.  Viktor Schauberger.  



Oh man, you really scratched an itch I couldn't reach. Once my eyes glanced
across that name ... immediate paydirt.

So this is the bloke behind the bio plough/golden plough that turns soil twice
so that the soil layers get deposited back in the order they first started.

BRILLIANT.

You have no idea how much googling/duckduckgoing about ploughs and not
finding this ... the only one in existence and thus not available on Amazon.
 
There were millions of the little blood suckers. But thanks to this tiny ad, I wasn't bitten once.
