Re. cards, I got revolut for a recent trip abroad and it worked out great. You put money on in advance, so not a credit card, but then you can pay in the local currency without any conversion or transaction fees. They charge a fiver to post it to you in the first place but it's all free after that. It was very convenient.

techcrunch said:
embattled CFO Peter O’Higgins has resigned and left the business.

The startup and O’Higgins have been under pressure after a Daily Telegraph report revealed that Revolut switched off an anti-money laundering system that flags suspect transactions because it was prone to throwing out false positives. However, Revolut has denied the claims of the report — see below for more.

According to the Telegraph, the system was inactive between July-September 2018, which potentially allowed illegal transactions to pass across the banking platform. Revolut did not contact the Financial Conduct Authority to inform the regulator of the lapse
I still have mine but I'm gonna get shot of it soon enough. The budgeting and money locker stuff in the app is great but the one time it fucked up on me the customer service were all like 'yeh whateves' for at least 12 hours.

An American podcast i listen to was interviewing one of the guys who wrote for the Simpsons back when it was good and they ended up having a brief discussion about the Ireland Simpsons Fans group. Felt a moment of pride for the endless shitposting in there. But also confusion that the specificity of that would appeal to anyone outside of this island.

Oh dear. Well there seem to be similar alternatives available, so I hereby switch my allegiance from revolut specifically to 'not paying fees with a handy, instant app-based something or other' generally.

I'm kinda hoping that established Banks will be forced to follow suit or buy out the tech.

My laptop has been dying for months and months, broken hinges, missing keys, the keys that were there stopped working. It's made life on Thumped very trying. But I loved it, it's a 17" monster and the price of a similar sized replacement just made me balk, especially as this one has always done exactly what I need.

Spotted a second hand one on ebay for a hundred quid last week, thought feck it and took a punt. Arrived today and despite it's age, it's spotless, still had stickers on the track pad, etc. Must have never been used. Feckin' delighted with myself.

AND Windows just let me swap the hard drive from the old laptop into this with no need for a reinstall, it just worked! LUV U WINDOWS.
