Score! I didn’t even have to say trick or treat, either!

ZH1ZUFE57M — you can’t pronounce that?

Mike Zornek 26 Oct 05

Of course, I upgraded yesterday and the discount comes out today. Oh well, I guess — it’s worth the cost by itself.

�ZH1ZUFE57M�? That’s not very user friendly now is it?

I suggest using a clearly labeled checkbox: “I know the secret code - really. Now give me the discount.”

I’m guessing that’s a one-off saving eh? And not a saving each month if you happen to upgrade now?

JF 26 Oct 05

One-off, yes.

This is off-topic, I’d like to see some discussion of your payment processing implementation someday.

I’m sure there are plenty of us Railsers that have or will be implementing payment processing. Getting a merchant account, choosing a payment processor, etc. can be confusing at first.

I haven’t used Google Base yet so I can’t comment, but it sounds like an interesting idea. I don’t know if it’s related to Backpack or not. We’ll have to wait and see.

Do this for Basecamp and you’ll have a deal…

Concerning the ZH1ZUFE57M ‘magic word’…

Why do you guys don’t encode your randomness in Bubble Babble? See http://wiki.yak.net/589 .
