iBill's purpose in business is to provide an easy-to-use, secure means of accepting online payments. Most web-fronted business are happy to let iBill skim a little off the top to avoid the hassle of handling payments themselves. Lately, they've been skimming it all.

The owner of one high-traffic site says "(IBill) has not been paying out for almost 4 months now." For a busy operation like his (not fieldlines.com), 4 months with no cashflow has got to be nerve-wracking.

Since iBill is apparently the world's largest internet payment service, how many other business are being strung along? If it turns out to be a house of cards that falls like another ENRON, there will doubtless be many little guys taken down with it.

Interesting Alt/Renewable/Home Energy forum

robslimo robslimo writes  |  more than 10 years ago

I've been hanging out here (as RatOmeter).

There are quite a few DIY'ers who frequent that forum who've built their own home energy production systems, mostly wind generators.

Quite an interesting place, if you're so inclined.

SCO are litigious bastards

robslimo robslimo writes  |  more than 11 years ago

Hi.

I've been with /. long enough to have forgotten and otherwise lost the passwords to my original account name (ratometer) as well as a few others.

I guess I just got frustrated and started posting as 'CmdrTaco (luser)' and 'robslimo'.

Never have I trolled with these accounts, but it's kind of interesting to see the moderation aberrations that occur on some of my posts... must figure I'm a clone, that I must be trolling. Hmm.

BTW, the people at SCO are litigious bastards

-Moderators: please leave /. journals alone.
