PayPal remains a way of paying on ebay but its becoming like Amazon in that there will be many more ways to pay.
But as a seller, when someone buys your item, even if they use PayPal, the money doesn't go into your PayPal account, it goes straight to your bank.
Ebay's payment processing will be done by a Dutch based firm Adyen and not PayPal
This is being rolled out and by the end of the year PayPal will be dropped as payment processor

Irritated with myself 🤨
Booking lots of leave as it's 'use it or lose it' time - why didn't I take more in the summer - doh.
Guess it's just been a strange year.

Can you not roll it over? Govt has said you can do that. Your employer should not be restricting you in that.
If I was an employer I'd be telling the gov to shove that idea where the sun don't shine. My employee has had 6 weeks off with pay already this year, and now next year I'm to shell out for, possibly, two years worth of paid holidays.

I had 7 months on furlough, my employer asked me to take holiday during this period. Holiday pay was at full rate not the 80% furlough rate, so it was better for me to take it
When I went back on 2 Nov it was the start of a brand new holiday year and I had to make sure nothing was carried over. Wasn’t a problem

Still miffed that I have to take 3 days holiday over Xmas as the company goes into hibernation for a few days

Don't mention Christmas. We have to provide skeleton cover every year & every year the same suspects duck it. This year with working from home we are all apparently supposed to be grateful that the usual skivers have volunteered to cover it. :mad::mad:

6 weeks off with pay was furlough and the money to pay for that came from Government schemes

Do your company allow people to take holiday during that furlough meaning that the company had to then give the employee full pay during that period or did the government pay again.

You can tell them all you like, it won't help. I found it best to have a good rant in my car on my own when I heard it. You can't win though so rant, get to work, suck it up.

The latest Call Of Duty, specifically Hardpoint in multiplayer.
They've completely messed up the scoring system so camping snipers or players just interested in racking up kills always come out on top now.
Playing the game as it's supposed to be played, aggressively and tactically astute does get your team the win, but has you near the bottom of the scoreboard 🙉
Wish I'd just bought Modern Warfare again but for the playstation.

What grinds my gears is no one going for the tags on Kill Confirmed and just kill farming. Yawn.

Modern Warfare is good but I’ll never play it again now except to grind guns up for Warzone if I decide I want to stay meta.

My random irritation people not just posting a quick Google result that confirms the facts etc so it's not one person's idea against another

It's not a new link, hopefully you are posting it to confirm you agree (hard to tell).
As per my original post, my irritation was with myself.
I was not furloughed and not prevented from taking leave.
As I remember it, the Government soundbite, as perpetuated by the press & media, was that you "could" carry over 4 weeks of leave. It's only when you look into it that it becomes clear that those who actually could are few & far between.

I don't really play Kill Confirmed, I've noticed the mechanics have changed slightly as well, no mounting guns etc :mad:
Luckily my Warzone loadout has transferred from Xbox One to PS5 so I don't need to grind again...like I did last summer...

That’s the problem from COD19 being an Infinity Ward game and Cold War being a Treyarch game - the differences will feel more stark. I’m intrigued to see how the CW guns integrate into Warzone when they merge the two titles.

I definitely agree on mounting. I instinctively try to mount my ARs in Cold War. It doesn’t help that I play so much Warzone so it makes switching over to CW more difficult. I like to play with lower sensitivity on Warzone because of the smaller field of view.

After being side-lined for 2 weeks with a sore knee I was looking forward to playing today. Looks a nice fresh day too, but seemingly the course is water logged and closed. :mad::cry:(n)
