I have had some messages asking about the typewriter booklets which have been bought through this blog. I can assure buyers the booklets, all of them personally signed, are on their way, to places from Australia’s Top End to Singapore to Estonia and the US of A in between.
A big thank you to those who bought them:

After some confusion at my end over an extra payment, Tori has set me straight and another copy will be on its way to Ted Munk on Monday.
I apologise profusely for a short delay. It has been a week from hell. Freezing weather, illness - both physical and mental - and certain life-changing matters (dealing with my impending redundancy at my workplace) have all got in the way.
Such things have conspired to divert me from more important matters: typewriters. But typewriter-wise, it has been a memorable week. More on that later.
Has anyone else noticed that when Murphy’s Law applies, and everything that can go wrong does go wrong, one pines to take solace and seek solitude in one’s typewriters? I was acutely aware of it all week.
Isn’t a PalOne of the problems I have had concerns PayPal. Perhaps naively I decided to set a new PayPal account just for booklet payments, thinking it was safer when putting an email address on my blog. Of course, the gmail inbox still soon got cluttered with spam.
PayPal wouldn’t let me link my bank account or Visa account to the new typewriter booklets account, saying these were already being used with my original PayPal account. Fair enough, I suppose; I assumed the new PayPal account would only be used for incoming payments.
However, when the booklet payments started to flood in, and I tried to send money to my original PayPal account, PayPal blocked me. So then I sent a request for money from the original account to the booklet account, and that has been marked as “pending” for more than a week now.
So the situation is, I have money in the booklet account which I cannot access, except to pay for eBay items. I keep telling PayPal that this is MY money, not theirs, but PayPal refuses to let me have it. PayPal also refuses to communicate with me to tell me why.
Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get at my money?
PS: I can’t seem to get rid of this damned mysmart.incredibar from my Google Chrome, so that’s not working properly for me either. Oh, dear ... back to the typewriters!
