Credit card payment thru PayPal

Solution Graphics

You can now pay your Prussia.Net account using your credit card through PayPal. For small businesses, PayPal is often the quickest and easiest way to accept credit card payments online—and in many cases they’re also the cheapest.

We don’t have everything set up yet. However if you currently owe us money and you’d like to pay by credit card, please email admin@prussia.net for details.

Changes afoot!

Prussia.Net is making some major changes to the way we do business from now through to the end of July 2007. We’ll be posting more a lot material on this website during that time.

As we add this material, some pages may be “incomplete”. If you’re interested in knowing more about anything related to those incomplete pages, please contact us.

Recycle your dead computers this weekend

Apple is running computer recycling weekends in Sydney and Melbourne this month—in Sydney this weekend, 21–22 July 2007 at various locations.

You can recycle any old computers (not just Apple’s), laptops, monitors or computer-related peripherals. They won’t accept copiers, TVs, overhead projectors, batteries not integral to computer systems, cracked or broken CRT monitors, UPS units or other toxic or dangerous items.

While this isn’t the only way to get rid of computers, and it follows scathing criticism of Apple’s environmental record, it’s certainly going to help get rid of Australia’s mountain of computer waste.

Your money dot con

ABC Radio National’s Background Briefing has an excellent documentary on how the poor state of Internet security affects you. A must-listen.

“No one’s telling how much of our money is being stolen through the Internet because no one wants us to lose confidence in the system. The banks are making so much money out of it, they prefer to wear the costs or push them down to the customer. In the meantime, everyone has a story and global criminals are stalking our accounts, our phones and our PCs.”

Spam and be fined — ignorance “no excuse”

Pitch Entertainment Group, which trades as Splash Mobile, has been fined $11,000 for sending commercial text messages without a working unsubscribe facility. The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) also fined IMP Mobile $4400 for the same breach.

Pitch included opt-out instructions as soon as they realised they were breaking the law. However, “ignorance of the law is not an acceptable defence”, said ACMA chairman Chris Chapman. “All businesses sending commercial electronic messages must make sure that they and their staff fully understand the requirements of the Spam Act.”
