Slowed momentum

Man it’s hard to keep going on projects sometimes.  I’m still waiting on approval of my merchant account (of course they don’t work weekends).  Does it honestly take two weeks to approve and set up a payment gateway and merchant account?

The most frustrating part is that I’m operating at a loss on a couple of services, even though they could be break even or even profitable – I just can’t get paid for them.  It bleeds over into other services though; I just started working on Brainfile, which I’ve been putting off for years.  I won’t be able to launch it to the public for free though: the operating costs would just be too high (bandwidth and storage).

I realize that’s a bit cryptic.  The idea behind Brainfile is that it is “micro version control” for collaborating with others.  Subversion, Git, Mercurial are all pretty technical, and not necessarily something you want to set up and learn just to be able to collaborate on that research paper, or work with your assistant on those quarterly financials.
