Howdy folks! Just a quick note to say that I’ve switched e-commerce providers (for Mayhem Intergalactic only) from BMT Micro to FastSpring. FastSpring provides a number of nifty features which BMT Micro doesn’t, and their system is a lot slicker overall. For example, all fraud checking is done instantly, so if you use a credit card or Paypal to pay then you should receive your purchase in your inbox immediately.
(Checks and money orders are still constrained by the speed of the postal service, unfortunately. No free pass there.)
Oh, and from my point of view, FastSpring is slightly cheaper than BMT Micro. That means more of your dollars going towards future Mayhem Intergalactic updates and new games!
A funny thing happened while I was in the process of setting this up… well, it was funny in retrospect. While checking a detail of BMT Micro’s ordering process, I discovered to my horror that Mayhem Intergalactic’s purchase link wasn’t working, due to a subtle Google Analytics misconfiguration error which occurred exactly two weeks ago. Yikes! Sorry to anyone who tried to access it during the past couple of weeks. I try my best to keep everything working, but unfortunately I’m just one guy. If you see something broken on this site, let me know and I’ll fix it lickety-split! Or die trying.
On that note, please go ahead and email me, post on the forums, or leave a comment here if you’re having any difficulties with the new system (or anything else for that matter). I live for your feedback, positive or negative!
