How can you tell that after you enter the site from that link, that they (newegg.com) will actually give a percentage to FTL?  They did not acknowledge it when I made my purchase, nor at any point in my shopping.  I guess I don't expect much to be said, but how can I know if my purchase actually counted towards FTL, however minimal it may have been... ?

Ian may mention how much they earned after he is freed, like he does with Amazon.

You wish.  The paint that the letters are painted on with has rubbed off on a lot of the keys.

I've learned to type (obviously).  As I type this I'm watching television.  In the dark.  I couldn't see the damn keyboard in front of me if I squinted and looked right at it.  I don't need to.  It just bugs me that it looks the way it does.  It's all about aesthetics, man.

Well I just ordered a bunch of Channukah/x-Mas gifts for myself and my family through newegg.  Hope FTL enjoys the profits, because I am still not considering AMPing  :lol:

I'm getting a page load error whenever I try newegg.freetalklive.com

Ian says it's working a-OK for him.  Anyone else?

You're not typing www are you?  I was talking someone through it on the phone the other day (wireless router) and he kept typing www even though I never said anything about typing www.  Eventually he said it as he typed it, I told him to follow instructions, if he knew what to do then he wouldn't have called me.  It worked.

12 years out of phone support and STILL I got to talk to assholes who don't do what they're told cuz they think they know better than the guy they called cuz they didn't know better.   fucking grrrrrrrr
