PayPal Treated Me Right

I recently tried integrating PayPal’s APIs with a site I work on and I jumped the gun before reading (I know, rookie mistake). I had integrated many other payment processing systems and I assumed wrongly that PayPal would accept test credit card numbers for testing. They flagged this as fraud, which I suppose is valid, and locked my account, limiting my ability to finalize my site.

They gave me a list of things to do to reinstate my account, and I did them, then they got more aggressive and asked for more validation, specifically the billing details that matched my credit card number—a test number that I obviously couldn’t provide. I explained this to them and they reinstated my account. I had little hope up to this point due to PayPal’s bad PR lately, but they solved my problem with a minimum of fuss, though it did take a while. Score one for the good guys.

Selenium ChromeDriver used to work

I used to use this code:

from selenium import webdriver
desktop_browser_list = [webdriver.Chrome("./drivers/chromedriver")]

But then Chrome apparently got fancier and doesn’t work with the old chromedriver. So I downloaded the new version, but it threw various errors.
So, now I have to switch to

from selenium import webdriver
options = webdriver.ChromeOptions()
options.binary_location = "/Applications/Google Chrome"
desktop_browser_list = [webdriver.Chrome(executable_path="./drivers/chromedriver", chrome_options=options)]
