Coming home knowing upkeep needed to be done.
How you manage both is beyond me and these creaky old bones of mine.

Unless they are starting their own type of bitcoin.
I never heard of it either.
Boy, I wish I'd have purchased that dot com ages ago.
I can think of several biz's that would've offered a pretty penny.

I don't know what is going on in the warehouses.
I received requested removal items in bubble out envelopes that should've been in boxes.
Damaged of course.
That's just pitiful.
* Amazon Central / Amazon adding crypto currency to payment methods?
« Last post by WayOutWest on December 01, 2017, 07:17:24 PM »
Amazon has added a few domain names to their portfolio, causing people to wonder if they're going to start accepting crypto currency, or possibly that they're going to create their own crypto currency.

Amazon now has,, and

While it's possible Amazon merely did this merely as a "just in case" move, in order to secure them while they're available, and it's possible they did it to prevent spoof sites from using them, it wouldn't be that big of a shock to see Amazon begin accepting them.  There are numerous online vendors that accept Bitcoin, including Dish Network, Overstock, NewEgg, Microsoft, Expedia, Steam,,, Bloomberg, Intuit, Shopify, Rakutan, and In 2014, eBay even announced that PayPal merchants could soon accept Bitcoin payments, though that ended up on the back burner when PayPal was spun off.
* Amazon Central / Re: Amazon Two-Step Verification is Mandatory by November 1

I came across (well was actually forced to use by one of the crypto currency platforms) a 2-step verification that's not too bad and it supposedly works with Amazon, though I haven't tried it there yet.  The app is Duo Mobile.  It works like the old PayPal key that you press button on for numerical string, but it runs on phone and tablet.

The nice thing is you can install it on multiple devices and you can set it to back up your acct info to your Google drive acct, for fairly easy recovery and easy moving to other devices.  The downside is that it doesn't automatically   sync across devices.  The pain is that for every site you absolutely MUST print out a QRcode and store it somewhere safe (such as fireproof safe).  Plus you will use that printout to add the acct login to every device that Duo is already installed on (and to reactivate them when Duo is restored or moved to new device)

Still, though, I like it better than waiting on a code via text message, especially since sometimes (particularly with PayPal it seems) the text message takes so long to arrive that the code is expired when you get it.

Anyway just thought I'd share

Edit - works on Amazon, easy-peasy.  And, like PayPal security key, you can pull up the 6 digit rolling code in Duo before logging in, and merely append it to your passcode.  E.g. if code is 543543 and password is PA$$WORD, just put in password field PA$$WORD543543 instead of typing in password, waiting for prompt, and then putting in 6 digit code.

Agreed. I do wish they had a better system in place for buyers to communicate to us the reason for return, though. Was it not up to the standards they expected? Was the shade or color not what they thought it would be? Etc. Hopefully the new returns page fixes that.
