Logging into ITL [Dec. 24th, 2010|08:47 pm]
I can't believe this. I apologize to everyone affected.

I just discovered that, for all of the recent subscriptions, PayPal is showing me one password and showing the reader a different password. So what I'm entering into the system, and what you're trying to log in with, don't match.

While I try in vain to contact PayPal and get some resolution, please spread the word. And please be patient. I'll try to fix it as soon as I can.

Again, I'm sorry. I had no idea that Paypal was doing this.

Looks like we got two of them out of the way.

Who do you think should be our next victim?

Passwords [Nov. 12th, 2010|03:02 pm]
Short version: PayPal has retroactively changed all of the passwords in the subscription system. The password you've been using is no longer the one they have on file.

As long as you remember your old password, the one you've been using, you'll be fine. The old passwords are still in the system on my website.

I've been e-mailing and calling PayPal, trying to get answers on this. Every single person I've communicated with so far has no idea what I'm talking about. They try to explain what subscriptions are and go over how passwords work. I start from the beginning and explain everything as clearly as possible, and they ask me if I'm having trouble logging into PayPal and need to reset my password.

Kind of difficult to get good customer service when the customer service representatives have no idea what the company's doing.

If you happen to forget your old password, you can either:
1.) Log into PayPal, check on your subscription, write down what your username and password are, and e-mail me so I can update the system.
2.) E-mail me with the e-mail address you use for PayPal, and I'll log in and look you up and enter you into the system and contact you with the updated info.

Kind of sad that the new subscribers won't get to enjoy passwords like goat&squat and funnel$bacon.

November 11th [Nov. 11th, 2010|08:32 pm]

Sweet Uncleanness turns ten today!

Dude, I had no idea. That's an actual milestone! Ten!

Man. I have to do something. Like write a story or bribe Diamond to fix up the site or something.

Anyway. SU turns 10 today. I started out with 51 stories ten years ago, and now I have two websites, three published short stories, "Living," Off the Record, and all of you.

Thank you for everything. Y'all have changed my life. Before I started this adventure, I'd never shown anyone my work, and I wrote expressly for myself. Now I want to use my work to give people an escape, to make you smile, to turn you on, to make you laugh, to share some of my ideas about life and love and romance and humanity.

Thank you for everything that you've done and all of your support. It's been a busy ten years, and a lot's changed - - I've changed - - and I'm grateful that you've been here, for any part of it.

Passwords [Nov. 11th, 2010|02:23 pm]
Something is screwy with the passwords. From what I can tell, PayPal changed them all without warning. I have no idea what's going on.

The password you've been using is still the one my site recognizes, so long-term readers should have no problem. There are new subscribers who may not have memorized their passwords yet, and who may check PayPal and try to use the new one and get locked out.

I'm going to ask PayPal what they're up to, and decide how to proceed from there.

Thank you to everyone who's been enjoying the print version of Volume 2! I really appreciate your support! Yes, an e-version will be available soon.

Now available in print [Nov. 4th, 2010|08:34 pm]

In This Land: The Purple Book, Volume Two is now available in print!

What an unfortunate title. Maybe we should just call it Steve.

Steve is now available in print!

Steve comes with his very own short story, "Asaku," and the username and password to exclusive on-line content (which this time around means answers to reader questions).

Please enjoy! As always, thank you for your support.

Edited to add: In other news, part 21 of "Where You Belong" should show up now. Sorry about that.

Hi [Sep. 30th, 2010|07:46 pm]
Three or four people have contacted me to say that they can't get into the site or into ITL, but everyone reports an entirely different problem.

If www.matthewhaldemantime.com itself won't pull up, please try another browser. If it still doesn't exist, please report whatever you can here.

If the site shows up just fine, but your username/password don't work (and they did before), let me know what's going on.

If you know anything about computers or the Internet at all, please read the comments and help me problem-solve.

Thank you!

Target [Aug. 4th, 2010|09:06 pm]
I was asked to share this video with y'all, and I'm happy to pass it along.

From the video's info:

Last week Target Corporation gave $150,000 to Minnesota Forward, which i[s] using the money to run TV ads for Republican Tom Emmer's campaign for Minnesota governor. Emmer has connections to anti-gay groups. This donation, clearly acceptible under the new Citizens United Supreme Court ruling angered many in the state, seeing this as a $150,000 contribution to fund ant[i]-gay politics.One Eden Prairie mom and grandmother took her anger directly to a Target. Her repeated attempts to get to Target executives failed so she took her Target Charge Card. A $226 purchase on that card was immediately returned for credit and she scissored her Target card into little pieces to be used no more.

Watch the video.Collapse )
