Second disbursement to ays
Fortunately this disbursement of $19.99 USD only took about 5 minutes.
Update* (same day less than two hours later) ays has received and sent his first email via outlook express. Ain't technology cool.
The website is dedicated to helping Iraqis who are blogging from within Iraq.
I want to spend some of the 334$ to help the poor families here in Baghdad, I want to buy some toys and food for them, I bought a camera, and I want to take some photos for them and see them happy, I wonder if you can send the money for me ( if it does not bother you as you got tired last time from the delay) but the Kuwaiti Bank that Omar send its address for you is very good, if you want me to send the address again, just tell me that. Of course you should use my name instead.
For now, I found this is a great idea to help the people and make them happy even for moments..right? I intend this new type of work in the blog. Then, I will invest the donations ( if there are more donations) in advertisements or other things.
thank you very much Tom, I appreciate your efforts very very much.

Subject: RSS feed for Iraqi websites

There’s quite a community of people trying to support Iraqi bloggers now! For a while last year I was trying to organise something like or (I think I told Émigré about this) but my tech skills were insufficient and the people who offered to help lost interest. However I’ve now discovered how easy it’s becoming to organise RSS feeds (I use one on the front page of www.jubileeiraq.org to feed in the headlines from www.jubileeiraq.org/blog/news.htm) using sites like www.blogstreet.com. I figure it would be easy to set up an RSS feed from all the Iraqi blogs, which they (and other bloggers) could paste in their sidebars displaying the titles of the latest posts from each blogger, and helping develop the community and introduce readers to people beyond Salam, River and Zeyad. I’ve mentioned this to Majid Jarrar (of afamilyinbaghdad) and he seems keen. Do either of you have RSS experience, or know someone who does, and would like to search the net a bit for the best way of doing this. I’m busy organising a Jubilee Iraq conference in Berlin, writing a report and planning to emigrate to Iraq in April… on top of a day job… so annoyingly I haven’t got the time needed to devote to this and consult with the Iraqi bloggers about what they’d like (and get them publishing .xml versions of their blogs).
What do you reckon?
BAGHDAD (AFP) - Iraq announced it has awarded Britain's HSBC and Standard Chartered and the National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) the first licenses given to foreign banks for 40 years.

You are operating what appears to be an online
donation scam via PayPal. I'm interested in
determining whether this is the case.
I'd like to verify that the wire transfers mentioned
on your site have been made. Please provide me with
the name and address of the bank which initiated the
wire transfers mentioned on your site, as well as the
name of a banker who I can speak with in order to
verify the transfers. I will contact the bank via the
bank's number as listed in directory assistance.
If you can't provide me with this information, I will
have to assume that this is a donation scam. If this
is the case, please take down the web sites in
question immediately. This will save us both the
trouble of going through PayPal's fraud detection
