Re: Parabolic AB Converter



Just another suggestion.  If someone has the ear of Parabolic you might
suggest to them accepting credit cards would boost their business.  This is
rather easy to do on this day and age using paypal  http://www.paypal.com

I held a merchant account years ago.  It was an abosolute rip-off and the
bank treated us like garbage.  Paypal's business account rates are VERY
competitve, and they have been very responsive to our needs.  It is all
amazingly simple to setup and use.

Standard disclaimer:  I don't work for them, just a satisfied customer.
