I am gonna consider investing in musician's earplugs... The ridiculously expensive re-usable ones that are like $150, but they don't muffle the sound at all.


You're talking about custom ones, right? For around that price I'm pretty sure you can get earplugs that are molded for the shape of your ear and have a tiny little hole custom-drilled into them to preserve sound fidelity and block all frequencies equally (like a flat response curve).

Yeah. That's why the price was so high. I was contemplating getting cheap universal fit ones, but I figure I may as well the custom moulded ones.

No credit card required. Since June 2009 I have gotten $430 in amazon gift cards. Just use it instead of google (because it's the same search engine), and get giftcards for amazon.

blackric, I don't have a Fax machine any more but I'll figure out something for you tomorrow. I may be able to open an eFax account on a trial basis or something.

CaptainKishimoto, done and done. Thanks!


Check the UPS store, I believe they offer fax services, the ones here do for a small fee, same goes for my local pharmacy.

Heya goomba, not sure if you're on your way to send out my items (#1250 / 2125020390) yet or not. But I was wondering if you could hang onto them for a little longer, I've got one more item headed your way and want to send everything together.

Thanks

maigoyume, I was shipping yours out next so I'll just hold off then if you have another item and will shift yours to be shipped next week. Thanks for the heads up!

forevergone, I'm waiting for the bank to clear the funds (since the items are more than $400). At the moment I can only use my debit card for purchasing so we're almost there ^_^ I will update your status on the GYROS once the order is complete. Thanks!

wizic, yeah I think I'm going to have to cancel the order and ask them for the money back. They're one of the annoying stores that charges you up front and then makes you wait for your items, instead of charging you once the items ship. Sorry they suck so badly.

jonkaho, haven't found them yet but I did look. There's a few stores on the way to work that I'll check this week :)

** Discounted GFC Service Credits Available: **

If anyone is interested in buying some Discounted GFC Service Credits (which will be deducted automatically to pay our GFC Service Charges each time you order something until all your credit is used up) I am going to be offering them at a discount this week. I need to raise approximately $1000 in order to pay off my lawyers and time is running out. If you'd be interested let me know. The more you buy the bigger the discount I can give :) Thanks.

GFC Service Charge Sale (Limited Time Sale):

Guys, I need to raise approximately $1000 this week in order to go forward with my bankruptcy filing (the attorney I hired can't actually do anything until we're paid off in full, so it's important that I get this done ASAP). I'm going to continue with DR's this week as well as selling some more items on eBay today and tomorrow, but I'll still need to raise more money. For that reason I'm having a discount sale on GFC Service Charges. Here's how it works:

When you buy on GFC as you know there is the item price and the service charge. Typically speaking it's $2.00 for the first item and $1.00 for each additional item. This is the only way we make money on our sales, but it's also the only thing we can discount (as we can't give a discount on the actual items you buy since those are fixed prices from other merchants). So what we're doing is giving you the chance to buy GFC Service Charge Credits for future orders at a discount. The more you buy, the more you save. These credits will not expire and will be tracked in real time with your orders. Sometime soon you'll also be able to see your running totals on the GFC website as well. So here it goes...

** GFC Service Charge Credit = $SCC

You Pay $10.00 USD - $30.00 USD = Receive an additional 10% in Credit
(Example: If you pay $25.00 USD you will receive $27.50 in $SCC)

You Pay $31.00 USD - $50.00 USD = Receive an additional 15% in Credit
(Example: If if you pay $40.00 USD you will receive $46.00 in $SCC)

You Pay $51.00 USD - $75.00 USD = Receive an additional 20% in Credit
(Example: If you pay $60.00 USD you will receive $72.00 in $SCC)

You Pay $76.00 USD - $100.00 USD = Receive an additional 25% in Credit
(Example: If you pay $90.00 USD you will receive $112.50 in $SCC)

You Pay $101.00 USD - $150.00 USD = Receive an additional 30% in Credit
(Example: If you pay $110.00 USD you will receive $143.00 in $SCC)

You Pay $151.00 USD OR MORE USD = Receive an additional 40% in Credit
(Example: If you pay $200.00 USD you will receive $280.00 in $SCC)

------------------------------
This credit does not expire, can be used towards DR or PF service charges and will be auto-deducted when sending invoices. It is not refundable but will stay on your account until you have used it all. If you have any questions just let me know. Thanks guys! Oh and I realize that not all of you can afford to buy $100+ of credit now ^_^ Just buy what you can and the discount is my way of saying thank you. I appreciate it!

You can buy the credit directly through me or on the GFC store (I'll be adding links later on so you can purchase it there). If you do buy on the site please include your CAG name in the memo/notes area. Thanks guys!

If you don't hit your goal, get in touch with me.

I had hoped you would have ended up with enough extra cash through the auctions you were doing, but if that's not the case, hopefully some of our users who are better off can help you out.

gsrce, I made my goals with the last auction (which was to cover my rent, car payments and such) but this time around it is to pay our lawyer so we can go through with our filing. Once this is done, then we no longer will have to pay our monthly credit cards as they'll be including with our filing and our financial issues will be solved once and for all. Of course, we'll have sort of crappy credit for a few years but without all the bills and credit cards (which we won't be re-applying for) we'll also have money in the bank :).

I appreciate your sentiments and assistance ^_^ You guys are the best!

Apollo, your Valkyria Chronicles came back to me as "Return to Sender" for some reason. I am going to resend it back to you (not sure why they didn't deliver it the first time). Like you said, you don't trust your mail carrier lol. Hopefully it gets to you soon. Very odd. Never have items sent back to me before. Please double check that the address is correct (I'll send you a shipping confirmation Email tonight).

penetratingpincer, we are doing another lowball sale (quite a big one actually) but it's not until mid-July once we have everything straightened out :) It's still coming though. I need to unload a ton of these things.

jonkaho, I will continue to look =) I'll let you know!

If you guys want to buy the discounted GFC Service Credits directly from our website's store, you can do so now! I've adjusted the discounts slightly to cover fees, but there's still some great deals here. ^_^ Please be sure to include your CAG name in the notes so I can apply it to your account (not all users' names are obvious). In July I will be adding a real-time credit checker on the actual GFC site for you to see how much you have remaining. You can of course always ask me directly at any time :). Here's the links:

$10 GFC Service Charge Credit ($SCC): $9.50

$30 GFC Service Charge Credit ($SCC): $28.50

$50 GFC Service Charge Credit ($SCC): $45.00

$75 GFC Service Charge Credit ($SCC): $64.00

$100 GFC Service Charge Credit ($SCC): $80.00


$125 GFC Service Charge Credit ($SCC): $94.00

$150 GFC Service Charge Credit ($SCC): $113.00

$200 GFC Service Charge Credit ($SCC): $130.00

-----------------------------
This GFC Service Charge Credit ($SCC) can be used towards DR or PF service charges and will be auto-deducted when sending invoices. It is not refundable but will stay on your account until you have used it all. Service Charge Credits do not expire. This cannot be used to discount the actual items that you are purchasing, and only applies to GFC Service Charges, UPS Pickup Fees & Package Forwarding Service Charge Fees. If you have any questions just let me know. Thanks for your support!
