I love lifting, sports, computers, my girlfriend Jenifer, and friends. Reading is also a big plus, and although I struggle, I enjoy math's intricacies.

Good Lord. I've been thrown into the shark tank that is freelance web development. I love it for the most part, but it's been HELL trying to work with PayPal to get what probably should have been a super easy payment/donation solution done. I've been fighting with their sandbox environment for the better part of 2 weeks, and my head's just about had it with all the mind fucking. I'd settle for their prebuilt shopping cart if it allowed the functionality I needed. 2/3 of my projects are going just fine...but this one just seems to be a thorn in my side. And the sad thing is, once I'm over this hump, it's absolutely clear sailing. WHY IS THIS SO FUCKING HARD? Maybe I'll get some wisdom or luck granted to me by the PayPal merchant staff, or someone who's already done this sort of thing.

  • I'm looking for someone to take over Business::PayPal since I don't do anything with paypal anymore, I'm really not actively maintaining it. Anyone...? It would be nice to see the newer features supported by someone who uses them.
    • I've been using Business::PayPal actively as of late. I could take on maintainership duties if you so desire, I've managed to grok what it does and implement a fair amount of the functionality.

  • dhoss feel free to send me an email, I went through the grinder learning the API and have a pretty good handle on it right now. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have. fred at redhotpenguin dot com.
