New car battery – car is fine

Three-way calling appears to be working

The tree-trimmers are coming today!

Half.com hasn’t sent me a single confirmation email (that they promise on their confirmation screen) for the 8 items I’ve ordered over the last 24 hours. They also claimed my card was rejected for a $6.00 purchase yesterday, when as far as the credit card company and I can tell, they must have made the request when they were updating their files? I would imagine that credit card companies and the approval infrastructure would be more robust than that, and that merchants would have some retries built into their system, so maybe I just encountered another lying customer support person. I’ve never had this card declined before, and I had several thousand dollars of available credit at the time of the purchase, so who knows. Annoying!
