AirBnB horror story – chatting with AirBnB support about a $2,000 refund request
Welcome to Fireside Chats with AirBnB support. Today we’re looking at a chat with AirBnB support inspired by real life events. This is an AirBnB horror story. Those real life events are told in a story on YouTube if you want to check out the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AH1wIOeT1xU where I talk about the shock of losing 2,000 euros on a non-refundable apartment booking over the AirBnB platform. The TLDR version is the host was rude, the booking was cancelled, AirBnB refused to provide a refund, and the host got to keep every penny of the payment in exchange for nothing. And me as the customer, I got that nothing. I got all of it, no housing.
Ukraine Company Registration
SaberWP has hired Ukrainian developers for nearly 15-years since previous versions of the company such as GoldHat Group and CustomNet Development. In our latest iteration as an agency our initial plan was to register the business in Costa Rica. Instead we have chosen a Ukraine company registration instead. Costa Rica was a sound choice from a tax perspective given the 0% corporate tax rate and the very generous 0% territorial taxation on foreign residents and company executives. However, as we write about recently in a Facebook post, some things are far more important than tax rates. By registering as a Ukrainian company we’re able to help fund the rebuilding of Ukraine as well as provide other contributions to the ongoing war effort.

What is generative AI and how are companies using it in 2023?
Generative AI is a type of artificial intelligence that is able to generate new data, such as images, texts, sounds, or videos, that are similar to existing data. This is achieved through the use of generative models, which are trained on a large dataset and then used to generate new data that is similar to the training data.
How to enable SVG uploads into WordPress media
By default the WordPress media section does not allow SVG’s. This is due to security, although it’s debateable whether this restriction is really necessary. As it becomes ever more common to use SVG’s, there are many situations where we would like to store them in WP media attachments.
