Flickr Fun

Personal Apr 2, 2005

So I check out how cool Flickr is. I decide I want to expand from a free account, and purchase a subscription, because the advantages are, well, cool. So I enter the order function. They take credit cards (and well they should), but it’s handled by PayPal — not so cool. The reason why it’s not so cool? I can’t pay with my credit card. Because I’m in South Africa. It’s not one of the ’45 Countries’ that can use PayPal. Fuckin’ great. Get with it you fuckholes (PayPal). How many damn years has it been?

— update: I should note that I searched the Flickr forums, and I’m heartened to learn that they will offer real payment options when they’re out of beta.
