Paypal Shuts down the Hackers for Charity

It would seem in an attempt to keep fraud off Paypal, the Hackers for Charity (and Johnny himself) have been put in quite a pickle. While out in Kenya helping fight off the world’s problems, Paypal has gone ahead and frozen his account because of some paperwork issues. I agree that security and fraud protection are paramount for an organization such as Paypal; however, their poor response time and awful support system have left something to be desired.

I like computers... A lot. So I tend to spend a lot of time doing varied things with them. Often you'll find me playing with Python or PHP, fighting with operating systems, ranting about some off-the-wall concept, or preparing for zombies.
