    It's PayPal, their job is to be secure, it doesn't get any tighter than them. I have no idea about the blinking, it has never happened to me, try re-booting your computer.

    Thank you everyone for donating to chucko, I will update the total later today. Don't forget about the auction:

    Hey, great job HVAC-Talkers!! As of 1:27 P.M Saturday our total is now $1,187.11

    There is still this weekend and Monday, then I will be shutting it down.

    I know you all will do what you can, and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated by chucko and his family.

    Thanks

    This is a strange number. Does this mean that account
    accumulates interest? I've always thought that any interest goes to Pay Pal and this is how they make profit.

    As far as I know, any money in PayPal doesn't accumulate interest. PayPal makes money by charging the money recipent a certain percentage if they have a commercial account that allows them to accept credit cards. That amount is probably the gross after the fees were taken out.

    It makes sense. I would not know that. I always use PayPal to pay, not to receive.

    I just sent a $100.00 donation to help, I challenge the other business owners to match it. I lost a son when he was almost 2, about 20 years ago, I feel his pain, the lord blessed me with another son who is now 6. This is the worst pain a family can endure. Mike.

    Okay Gentlemen, the current total is:

    $1,297.11

    That is the actual amount donated by HVAC-Talk members, nothing to do with fees or interest. As I said before, every cent you guys donate will go to chuck, do not worry about the transaction fees, I will handle them.

    I will be closing off the page for donations at the same time the auction ends, which is 9:00 p.m. tonight!

    So today is your last chance to help chucko615 through HVAC-Talk. Please do the best you can

    Thank you!

    Sorry, I aint been around.

    I lost a VERY small son this weekend myself. Wifey was 4 months pregnant when we lost him. 2½oz. 6" tall. Very emotional Mothers Day weekend for us but nothing compared to Chucks loss. Here's a small ($150.)donation for you and your family Chuck, I hope it helps ease the pain a little.

    My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

    Oh, I'm really sorry to hear that Spotts. I went through that at 5 months, many years ago. I was absolutely shocked at the feeling of loss that I felt at that time, I was taken completely by surprise. You are right though, it pales in comparison to the pain chucko must be in.

    Thank you for your your donation.

    Surprised?

    Whooo Boy! Go in for a routine checkup, and I went along to see him swim on the little camera thingy and in just a second- it was over. Hows our GRAND total look Don? Sure like to see these $$$$ double today!

    I(we)went through that too. We went to the ultra sound and I knew something was wrong. This was before my son was born who is now 18mo and was 2 months premature, which was another stressful time.

    didn't you just have a kid? You animal you


    ...I agree, it does not compare with chucks situation
