RIO IN 14 HOURS

This is not much of a picture to be posting on BURN. It is only a “proof of location” picture. Yup I am at gate D16 in Miami over where everybody gets life power by plugging in their mobile devices. I am one of them. On my way to Rio and only now officially announcing my one month long reportage. My final book chapter for Rio. Two years in the making. Ok now seated on plane and I will have to turn phone off soon.

Go please to: www.theriobook.com

All should become clear..Next picture on that site upon landing.

See you soonest in Rio

  • For whatever reason PayPal doesn’t seem to accept payments to Burn. It just says “At this time, we are unable to process your request. Please return to Burn Magazine, Inc. and try another option”.

  • Cabo, Andrew,

    I am on this full time trying to resolve.

    Cheers,
    Haik

  • Planning to come to São Paulo?

  • FOLKS – IMPORTANT

    FOR THOSE THAT HAVE RECEIVED PAYPAL MESSAGE “At this time, we are unable to process your request. Please return to Burn Magazine, Inc. and try another option”. WHEN SIGNING UP FOR RIO.

    DO YOU HAVE A VERIFIED PAYPAL ACCOUNT?
    IF NOT VERIFIED, DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH BALANCE IN PAYPAL ACCOUNT?

    if you rather stay private, send me an email at m*e*s*r*o*p*i*a*n at gmail – remove stars.

    thank you

  • HAIK – I tried it several times yesterday, all with the same result: “At this time, we are unable to process your request. Please return to Burn Magazine, Inc. and try another option”.

    I have a verified Paypal-account. So far I did not need a positive balance – I authorize a withdrawal from my bank account with every new transaction – which has not been a problem so far…
    Well, hope that helps!

    KURT – thanks again so much for getting me ready to board the plane to Rio!

  • i think i have identified the problem …….

    ” You haven’t created any settings for making small purchases (less than $4.00 USD) that don’t require postage.”

    any one know how to take care of this ?

  • I do hope you get to vsit Marius Crustaceos on this visit. A couple of nights at Bob Nadkarne’s is also fun.

  • i registered with no problems from paypal…

    thanks for doing this David… have a nice trip and looking forward for your updates…

  • you were here in MIAMI?!?! miss it….let me head over to RIO. HOT!

  • I’m in, thanks Haik: things are already hotting up over there! Mira, hope all is as well as it can be.

    Mike.

  • Haik, I have seen the option at other sites of paying using a credit card through the paypal front end but without having to sign up with paypal, or logging in with an existing account. Seems an easier option.

  • Mike R….

    Dd you find a way without PayPal?

  • @Dominik: exactly the same here…I hope Haik can work it out

  • I just sent US$ 1.99 to the address you used for selling BURN.02 (m*i*c*h*e*l*l*e at …). That seems to work fine.

  • FOLKS
    Please enable micropayments in your paypal account. Here are instructions

    Here’s how to update your payment preferences for micropayments :

    Log in to your PayPal account.
    Click Profile at the top of the page.
    Click My settings.
    Click Update in the section of My checkout settings.
    Select the payment preference you wish to use.
    Click Update settings.
    Click Yes to update your settings.

  • Registered and paid but can’t log into the site

  • Haik,
    can second Dominiks’ PAYPAL story. Have also verified PAYPAL account, no balance was previously necessary since the amount is deducted from my bank account.
    Can the people who had a “successful transaction” via PAYPAL for the RIO deal elaborate in detail(!) on the necessary steps to get this done and over with . . . !

    Gerhard

  • Gerhard,
    Could you please try once again? i have changed something that might be related to payments from Germany.

    Thanks

  • @ HAIK: Log from France, without any problem, maybe is a German trouble…

    @ DAH/ANTON: Can you remove some stuff in the main page, please…and left RIO 14 hs as a Dialogue, if not to many windows and dialogues “rooms” at the same time.

    Gracias
    Abrazo
    P.

  • Michael K, no, I just went through the signup process and paid with my credit card. I presume that I can close the account after Rio.

    Mike.

  • Had no problems from NZ yesterday; just a normal Paypal transaction from my bank account. Thanks.

  • @ Every AT/XT or Commodore Nostalgic user…

    JEFF happy birthday again…

    I have to say this…JEFF offered to pay my RIO trip BUT KURT was just a click faster…

    Who can tell me that BURN is not THE place to be?
    who can convince me that this is not a family?
    Who can stop me from screaming…

    MR.HARVEY you are a heck of a fireball who leaves a big BURNING trail behind you…oime…

    where are you BOBBYB and MY ACADEMIANS?…I can’t express my feelings,I am just a poor dyslexic ESL civilian and
    I LOVE YOU ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

  • a civilian-mass audience

    ROBERTA,RENATA,BETO…AND BRAZILIAN FRIENDS this I have to say…

    YOU are ALL amazing…!!!

    P.S…attention,someone loves glass doors?…hiii…

  • NO PROBLEM with PayPal at all… (reporting from the Home of the Brave, Land of the Free!!!)

  • just a normal Paypal transaction from my bank account. Thanks.
    ——————————————–
    just like ROSS reported from NZ yesterday…easy breezy frizzy…
    PayPal rules…i never had any problems with safety nor i ever heard of one.. Even when we dealt with prints last month or even dealing with book shipments or whatever , there was never any security or any other issue..
    i strongly believe that HAIK chose the simplest, most sophisticated, most secure transaction system available as of today of course…If something changes , im sure Haik will be the first to know..
    Either way, HAIK IS DA MAN!..
    BRAVO AND THANK YOU!
    I’M ALSO “IN”!!!!!!!!!!

  • Haik –

    I get this far:

    Log in to your PayPal account.
    Click Profile at the top of the page.
    Click My settings.
    Click Update in the section of My checkout settings.

    Then I get the message “You haven’t created any settings for making small purchases (less than $4.00 USD) that don’t require shipping.” So there is no way for me to add micropayments. Any ideas? PP help section is no good.

  • pp is no good guys :). overall they have not thought about humans as users. i m working on an alternate solution.please give it a little while.

  • I encountered no problems at all.

  • FOLKS,

    I HAVE ADDED AN ALTERNATE METHOD TO REGISTER. IT IS OUTLINED IN THE REGISTRATION PAGE BUT HERE ARE THE BASICS.

    YOU REGISTER FOR FREE ACCOUNT – USE THE PAYPAL CHECKOUT – IT WONT CHARGE A DIME.
    THEN YOU WILL BE PRESENTED WITH A “BUY NOW” BUTTON.
    ONCE WE RECEIVE YOUR PAYMENT, YOUR FREE MEMBERSHIP WILL BE UPDATED TO RIO MEMBERSHIP.

    LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS.

    sorry for caps. please pass on to others if they have problems with the main payment method.

    Let me personally thank Thomas Bregulla for his help
