The slightly more colorful behind-the-scenes version of this post.

ETA: I finally got my account with moneyexchange all sorted out. Apparently, something wasn’t coming up roses for them (must be the fact that I rent so have moved around a couple times in the past 4 years). But after sending in documentation, they approved my account. mauvaise_etoile also had some trouble initially but sorted it out via phone. Still though, $25 is $25 (and in my case, thanks to Tara, that would be $35). Anyone else want to add to the mag fund? They extended it ’til May 15.
