I mean, they just sent me the the update notice !!! late Friday… I thought I had until Monday.. at least.

And when you are a World Famous Blogger (like me), you find that people will auction their items using your e-mail address. I just wish the person(s) using mine would stop causing so many disputes, and accepting bogus cc#s…
