damn. I tried e transaction. but , I know now, cant etransfer to the US from canuckland. who knew. had to cancel that next day for a 5 button fee. they kindly waved it after a call. then went to the bank and got a 33 dolla US money order that eventually cost me 60 buttons...not sure otto has received it yet, but he graciously gave me 18 months (if recalling correctly) prorated. I hope it shows up soon. bank says they can trace it, and I have a copy so...dont send the cauliflower ears yet. the process took about 10 years to gather resources, 5 days to execute, overbudget, and still dont know if I have officially become Patron. while looking for a scapegoat, i blamed OPs cane, which otto noted, contains a soul. which in retrospect, was probably trying to thwart my good intentions. i have since discarded that theory.
