I deleted the past 5 or 6 posts, the storyline about Rebate payment weirdness.
Turns out, I was just confused about how the information was presented on the government website:: I found more information which indicated that everything is as one would expect.
In other news:
I've been giving a whole bunch of money to charity for years now --- and charities just come asking for more and more. But I'm not that rich. And people just don't seem to be able to afford the small price on any of my work.
I guess the whole world is impoverished --- where all this charity is being asked for, where people will just take freebies and rip-offs, and nearly no one will actually honestly pay the smallest price for a product.
Wow. Huh. To be honest, after donating so much already, and seeing pretty much zilch coming in from sales, I stop feeling inclined to continue donating --- especially when I will probably be going through big changes in my life that will be very expensive.
