Off-Topic / Re: Bullies
« on: July 19, 2015, 06:07:53 am »Message ID: 997874
It doesn't excuse the behavior, but many bullies are the result of being victimized themselves in some way. Like so many other negative social behaviors (domestic violence, child molestation, alcoholism) bullying is often the result of learned behavior or being victimized by the same behavior.  Some are able to break the cycle while others fall into the same behavior moving from a position of weakness to a position of power.

Off-Topic / Re: ESPY Awards

The only two "meaningful" awards/moments I can recall in ESPY history were Jimmy Valvano and Stuart Scott.  Bruce Jenner's award was offensive to sports as a whole in my opinion. In years past I usually watched the ESPY's for the legitimate sports awards, but this year I did not watch any of the show or the video clips that came afterward.  The ESPY's jumped the shark when it was announced that Jenner was being honored.

Your banner on the forum currently says $12.01.

Thanks for the comment.  Must be something on my own machine that is not showing the updated totals in my banners since I am still seeing the lower amount.  But I appreciate you letting me know what you are seeing.

Hmm.  :-\  My earnings banner in the forum has been stuck on $10.50 for a few days now.  The earnings banner on my website has been stuck on $10.52 also for a few days.  And my actual earnings on the website are listed at $12.43.

FusionCash / Re: Referrals
« on: July 18, 2015, 05:39:14 am »Message ID: 997689
On another site, which shall remain nameless, I've managed to get 171 referrals over the past five years.  Only 21 are still active, but I did just have one that was inactive for over a year check back in.  I also had one fellow who was active daily for about 10 months and that suddenly just stopped one day. I would check his progress regularly and even though we never communicated, I felt a tie to him just based upon his daily reliability!  When he stopped checking in, rather than worry about the lack of pennies coming into my account from him, that became secondary to my concern that something might have happened.

I wanted to reach out to him, but he singed up with a hidden email.  So I was able to send some anonymous prayers to him and hope that they did someone some good, but it's now been over six months that he has been inactive.

Understood and I agree with you to a degree.  My main reason for asking is that I added this banner to my web site where I promote other GPT services (both with and without referral links).  One of the things I also do there is periodically update my earnings from each site and offer payment proofs.  Initially, I thought I would just drop in this banner and not bother with updating the dollar amount as to FusionCash.  I still may do that and just monitor it periodically.

I suppose once I get a thousand+ dollars in earnings I won't care as much about accuracy.   ;)  But initially, I am hoping to show potential referrals how quickly the early earnings can accumulate and multiply from day to day.

Ultimately, I'm just happy to be earning anything extra at all, so hopefully nobody mistakes my question/comments as a complaint!   :thumbsup:   :in-love: FC

Off-Topic / Re: Do people still crochet?
« on: July 17, 2015, 09:11:53 am »Message ID: 997483
My elderly mother still crochets fairly often.  On a recent visit, my 8 year old daughter asked my mom to teach her how.   She started to learn and then her cousins also wanted to know how.  Out of three of them -- girls 8 and 10, and a 12 year old boy -- the boy is the one who has become the most interested and dedicated!  Not trying to fall into stereotyping here, but he is the typical reckless, invincible, "play every sport known to man and then some" :male: kid, but still out performs his younger  :female: sister and  :female: cousin when it comes to yarn and the needle!

I just became an Amazon Prime member about a month ago.  I buy things often on Amazon, but the free 2 day shipping was not really a major draw for me.  I subscribed and use it primarily for the video content.  My wife has been watching the TV show Grimm since it started about four years ago.  I saw a handful of episodes last season, but had no idea of the backstory.  With Amazon Prime, I was able to binge watch the first three seasons.

Three other series that I've wanted to see and heard great things about, but have never been able to catch are on there as well:  Blacklist, The Sopranos, Downton Abbey are all waiting for me down the road.  Then there are others that I HAVE seen and would love to watch again: The Americans particularly comes to mind.  So for a little over 8 bucks a month, I can watch all of that plus find a few others that interest me.  And even though the 2 day free shipping wasn't a primary motivation, I was still able to get a birthday present for my wife at the last minute and get it delivered in time!   :sweat:

Support / Re: FusionCash in Another U.S. Location?

The rules say one connection, but they don't say you can't run it remotely. Look up Team Viewer free version.

I am still new and confess that I did not read the TOS in detail when I first signed up.  I came across this thread and am now concerned after reading Oldbuddy's comment and looking up TOS rule (I sent a support ticket, but wanted to check here as well for others' understanding).

I have a laptop that I use at home AND a desktop at my office -- neither are shared machines and no other FC accounts use either connection, but each machine has a distinct Internet connection.  I have accessed my FC account through both.  Do I need to stop that and only access through one of them?

I was also out of town last weekend with my laptop and connected to FC on Saturday using my personal machine through my mother's WiFi.  Reading this thread, it now seems that is something I cannot do?

FusionCash / Earnings Banner updates
« on: July 15, 2015, 11:23:34 am »Message ID: 997048
When or how often are the earnings in the banner ads updated?  Is that a certain time or times each day or is it just random?  I only ask because I've added a banner ad to my web site and to my forum signature.  At the time I am posting this question, they each say something slightly different, and both are a bit less than the balance that is listed on my account header visible only to me on the FC web site.   :confused1: 

Off-Topic / Re: Apps that pay you per year
« on: July 15, 2015, 10:58:58 am »Message ID: 997036
I have heard of them but do not have any of them on my phone.  Seems when I read the fine print I had to give up some privacy and be tracked and didn't want to do it.

Yes, most of the apps that pay you just to have them on your phone for a set period of time are tracking you and THEY ALSO will use some of your cellular data which can be a problem if you aren't on an unlimited data plan.  But there ARE other apps that will pay you for using them that aren't as invasive.  They still track you to some degree, like the apps that pay you for scanning and submitting your store receipts (but if you use any grocery store loyalty cards you are already giving up that privacy).

<--- Google my Twitter name and you can find a more detailed list.

Off-Topic / Re: What's your favorite 80's movie
« on: July 15, 2015, 09:12:10 am »Message ID: 997013
There are WAY too many 80's movies to pick just a single favorite!  Just about every one mentioned so far is a classic.  The ironic thing about the question = you have movies filmed in the 80's that all have similar characters/attitudes/storylines that revolve around 80's society and pop-culture such that there is a distinct 1980's "feel" to the movie.  Yet one of my most favorite movies (Diner filmed in 1982) was about a group of young guys living in 1959.  Great cast of actors early in their careers who went on to huge acting careers: Steve Guttenberg, Mickey Rourke, Tim Daily, Kevin Bacon, Daniel Stern, Paul Resier.

Off-Topic / Re: To Marry or Not To Marry

Right and wrong has never changed. Only people's perceptions of it change to suit their own purposes.  :sad1:

Although I agree with pretty much everything that linderlizzie said, I think this is the key/core point summed up in one line.  I think the growing acceptance of moral relativism has done more to undermine and damage society than just about any other ideology.

The choice to live a married or single life is one thing, and choosing to live a single life is not a bad thing.  No one should be made to feel incomplete or a failure if they choose to live a single life and not get married.  But the choice to live together or to have children with one or more partners outside of marriage is not right in my opinion and belief system.

Have been a fan of the Black & Gold since I was a child in the 70's.  (Didn't hurt that they were winning Superbowls then and I lived only 40 miles from Pittsburgh).  Now I live in the heart of arch-rival Browns country, but there are still a good number of Steeler fans here, so I don't have to feel afraid to wear my Hines Ward jersey in public!
