I think it's safe to say I have a smart ffridge now, just look at the thing:
controller: OverallStatus: [Sunny,InverterStatus (SetTo (PowerSetting True)),FridgeStatus NotKnown,FridgeThoughts "Motor is too warm, not starting! Otherwise, would be: banking cold on a sunny day (battery is not full yet, but should be soon) (+1.69C from freezing): Nothing"]
Wells Fargo bank can only accept transfers of USD to their SWIFT.
To transfer Euro to them, it has to go via an intermediary bank (Deutschebank), with the beneficiary bank and their SWIFT, and my account name and account number all included in the transfer instructions.
I also tried Transferwise; to send Euros to my account there, the transfer has to include a reference number that they provide.
No way to do any of that with the #Liberapay form, so my EUR is stuck currently.
Yes @joeyh it would be. Christ.
@mako 's talk on why free software needs free tools. Highly recommended.
Update on this, I tried the withdrawal to Wells Fargo's SWIFT; it was rejected with "please contact our Finance Team", which sounds like a Wells Fargo kind of thing to say, so I think that @Liberapay's changes are working to some extent.
Still yet to see the money. I'll go talk to the Wells Fargo international transfers division now, ugh.
Re "efail" , it's perhaps worth noting that gpg does have bugs in this area, and it's actively being fixed, despite conter-reactions you may have read yesterday.
