Support & FAQ
My RSS feed doesn’t seem to be working, what gives?
I have been fighting intermittent RSS delays that seem to be a result of the caching system that I use for the site. There isn’t anything you need to do to resolve the problem, just email me your username and what is happening so that I can resolve it for you.
There also appears to be an issue I cannot resolved associated with Reeder.app and Google Reader. If you are using Reeder and your feed is not updating, please check to see if it is updating in Google Reader before emailing, to let me know. Thanks (and very sorry).
I didn’t get my login credentials, how do I find those?
If you use Google’s GMail or Google Apps for email, then the emails likely ended up in your SPAM folder — while I am working to resolve this, I am also learning it’s a bit of a black art. If you can’t find it, or need any help please just email me. If you know the username you registered with send me that, at the very least send me the email that you used — I will get you the login.
Where can I find my Unique RSS feed?
Why did you make a big stink about ads, but still post Amazon Affiliate links?
I don’t see them as the same thing. Ads were not filled by me and were hard to fill. Affiliate links are just a way for me to directly make money from you, my readers, on products that I would have otherwise posted about.
This doesn’t sit well with some, but I see a very clear distinction between the two.
I signed up, my card was charged, but I don’t see any login information — help!
That’s not a question. But the likely culprit is that you did not fill in a working email address — please email me with as much information as you have so that I can fix the problem for you.
Why no yearly payment option?
I hope to add this in the future, but no promises.
Why no PayPal?
Because I don’t like to use services that feel they have a right to freeze my funds for any reason.
I signed up, logged in, and hated the member content. Can I get a refund?
Yep, just email me — I will cancel your account and refund you the current month’s fee.
I logged in, but the site still tells me I am not logged in, how do I fix this?
Easy, log in, once you are done and redirected to the main site hit refresh on your browser — that should do the trick for you. If you are still having problems email me.
I am going to be in Seattle for a trip, any recommendations?
Be sure to grab a drink at: Vito’s where it is rumored that it used to be a mob bar. Go there later on a Friday and see an old person playing the piano, take a trip back past the bathrooms and check out the “Cougar Room”. It’s worth the stop.
Also grab a slice at Big Mario’s and hope they are playing the Little Mermaid VHS while you are there (meatball pizza is the best).
For a quick bite head over to Dick’s Drive In cash only, and no special orders. Its a staple of Seattle night life.
Lastly, when your sweet tooth calls, hit up Molly Moon’s (featured in Microsoft ads for Windows Phone, odd)
When you want a cup of coffee, Cafe Vita is the best in town.
Be sure to check out Belltown, Queen Anne, and the downtown core. There’s also a cute beach town over by where I used to live called ‘Alki’, if you head over there just tell the taxi to take you to Cactus on Alki — they have great Mojitos.
If you want to splurge, the best steak in town is Daniel’s Broiler. Be sure to get the beef teriyaki appetizer — it’s amazing.
Are you kidding me with these recommendations? I have better ones.
Good for you, but these are my recommendations, not yours.
What about recommendations for Tacoma, WA?
Easy: go to Seattle.
Most of the answers amount to “email me”, can’t you be more helpful?
Nope, most of the issues are on the backend, not something you can solve.
How do I change the credit card associated with my account?
While logged in, visit your profile page and cancel your membership. Next (while still logged in) go to the page to sign up for a membership, enter your new credit card (there should be no username or emails fields if you are logged in) this should activate a new card on your account and not change anything else. If you have problems, or get double billed email me and I will correct that ASAP.
