Thank you so much.

Such a frustrating time of the year.

Everybody's in shopping season so hardly anyone is spending anything on donations, & clicking on ads at YouTube or UG. Meanwhile, nobody's dropping stuff off for me to fix or upgrade because they're all saved up for new stuff, or hoping they get a replacement as a gift. So the bottom falls out for me around now.

Fortunately warranties on the new stuff they'll be getting over the holidays won't cover upgrades or modifications to get it to do what they want it to, or make it compatible with their old stuff. So at least I get a little business back from that sort of thing in January... or people decide they like their old unit better after getting a new one, so move on to upgrade it.

Thank you.

I believe there's a problem if you set up reoccurring or monthly payments. It's not allowed for donations to private or personal entities, & is only permitted to donate to corporate accounts.

In another words, in most cases setting up a monthly or reoccurring donation payment won't work at PayPal.

Thank you so much my friend.

A little reminder everyone. Don't set up automatic monthly payments/donations to Betty's at PayPal. It don't work. From what I was told, automatic monthly payments only work for business sites with shopping carts with PayPal installed. We don't sell anything, so do not have a cart.

The ads here are an experiment, & don't earn much. The ads at Betty's, combined with all my YouTube channels are earning about $27-$35 a month. And they don't pay until a month after they've earned over $100. So I'll only see a check from them once every 3-4 months.

It's more a proof of concept experiment, & to hopefully someday attract other or better advertisers. There's been some grumbling that we can't run ads here. So here's the proof... Yes, we can run ads here, even from very strict Google.

We tend to like to stay under the radar so we don't attract spammers, scammers, hackers, & trolls. But by running ads from a premium advertising company, it puts us on the radar with web businesses as a high-traffic (but well hidden) set of sites. This places us in a higher ranking, & better reputation, without attracting a lot of the extra riff-raff.

We're getting the traffic as good or surpassing our busiest years back in the old days when Betty's was recognized worldwide as a formidable force on the web. We got big numbers, so it's time to get some recognition for it again.

Late in 2017, & this year there's a lot of changes in the web & how it works. I'm not at all happy with all of the changes, & neither will you. I refuse to cooperate with some of these changes. But rather loose rankings, & being placed low on searches by not cooperating, by attracting & maintaining even low-paying advertising, plus having linked external channels with advertisers will keep our rankings up... even if I don't do exactly what they say I should.

We get 4.5 million or more hits per year, & run advertising on most pages, plus on our channels. Are they really gonna rank us low because I won't do what they tell me to? Rankings are supposed to be about how popular a site is, how safe it is, & how much people like it, not about what complies with a rule book written by Google, Bing, or Yahoo.

Those rules are mostly to make all sites work, & look exactly the same, with no controversy, politics, sex, or honest & useful commentary. They want white or off-white pages with pale grey text, & blue links. I thought we were over that crap in 1996!

Now they threaten to give all sites a low ranking that don't look good & function well on a 4" phone screen vertically. If you're on a tiny screen visiting a real website, you have to use your phone horizontally, not vertically. We are not gonna dumb down our sites, & make them look terrible on a computer just because people with a tiny phone are too stupid than to try to turn their phone sideways at a real website.

They threaten in 2018, to give all websites that don't use an "https" encrypted web address a low ranking. Really? Did https prevent millions at Yahoo, Verizon, Equafax, banks, or your iphone from being hacked? No! Your passwords, & cookies needed to log in here are encrypted. I will not encrypt the entire website & address. We don't sell anything here, & I certainly hope you are not using the same login here as you do at your bank. However, Betty's is safer & more secure than many banks, & big online shopping sites. So why the hell do I need to encrypt the entire site?

If you're visiting Betty's on an un-trusted, & un-secure wifi connection, the bad guys there will still know you're visiting Betty's if we had https. Our own security & encryption is fine. Converting to https puts an extra large unnecessary load on our sites, servers, bandwidth, & an unnecessary load on your computer or device, & bandwidth.

However, rest assured if you donate through paypal, they do use https encryption for transactions. We don't do banking & transactions here. We don't sell anything, so don't need https.

We will not be switching to https. If I could see any advatage or improved safety using it here, we would have switched long ago.

We will not be turning our sites to look goofy so somebody can visit here while holding their 4" phone vertically. Learn how to use the phone horizontally when visiting a real website, or get a computer. We do have a separate feed for phones & portables at Betty's though. If your portable device's browser is set for phone or tablet viewing rather than a desktop/laptop view, you get our mobile feed automatically.

It even looks good vertically on a 7" android screen. But on my 4.5 inch phone, it has to be flipped horizontally. On your portable, you should see a "mobile home" button on the top of our pages if your portable device's browser is set correctly. If you see a "home" button instead of a "Mobile Home" button near the top, you're viewing our regular, normal version, not the mobile version.

Our sites were designed specially for regular computers & laptops. So as long as your screen is big enough, you're better off using our normal version by changing your browser settings to desktop/laptop view.

I spent a lot of time creating our mobile versions a few years ago, & just updated them last week, but they are a compromise for small screens. And never visit real websites vertically on real tiny screens & phones. Almost all websites are really designed to be visited horizontally.

Hi I managed to make a payment useing my other stupid laptop Windows 10.
For some reason on here it always goes to blank when I try to use Paypal.
But trying to view your sites on 10 is useless.
