Though I recall a member posting a blog asking about this a while ago, I could not relocate it for my purpose in this discussion.
It can be nice when one stumbles upon a musician's shop (via their website), to see that they are selling their autographs. Stephen Duncan has referred to this as a 'win-win' situation. I figured this could grow as a wee database for listing those musicians who partake in this.
I recently recieved a couple press photos signed in ballpoint from John Mayall's website (http://www.johnmayall.com/merch.html). I am also aware that you can purchase signed CDs from Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits(http://peternoone.com/store/). John 5 ( formerly Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie guitarist) sells various items signed, with an option to dedicate.
So, does anyone else know of this being done by other musicians?
When you ping it in "Command Prompt" it comes up with this.
"Ping request could not find host www.paypal.com. Please check the name and try again."
So there's something wrong with the site it must not be responding.
Their DNS servers were ddos'd this morning and taken offline. They seem to be back up now.
I can't be of help there. This my first attempt to purchase an online promotion item directly. I tried several time earlier in the day but was not able to reach Paypal to pay. By the time I was able to try again it was sold out.
Not sure why or how I got it to go through. YES paypal is down and down on my phone as well. I got confirmation that the order went through and a confirmation number. I just didn't get the usual paypal email. Once paypal is back up I will have to double check.
Paypal just worked for me. And thanks for alerting us to this before the flippers get them all! I only ordered one.
Yup, Paypal is up and running again now :)
1 ordered here too. Thanks!
