02:18 idiosyncrat_ Many thanks to Ron Savage for buying the books on my Amazon wish list -- these were books useful for Marpa, but which I couldn't quite budget.
02:18 idiosyncrat_ They will come in handy.
02:19 idiosyncrat_ There was one hiccup I did not expect -- I figured Amazon would be very good at taking money, ....
02:20 idiosyncrat_ but it turns out the interfaces for Wish lists and gift cards are both painful and on both sides -- for donor and for recipient.
02:21 idiosyncrat_ Perhaps it will be best if I reactivate my Paypal account for this purpose.

06:23 ronsavage JK: Ahh, Paypal. I should mention Amazon would not let me transfer money from Paypal to Amazon for gifting. That was one of a number of disappointing components in the experience. So I advise everyone to consider direct transfer account-to-account within Paypal. YMMV.
