    this is annoying
    the currency rates are set to update automatically every day
    but for some reason it fails every once in a while...
    last time we had the CAD set to -1.00 and it made all prices input by canadian stores turn into "lowest prices!" which fucked the website.
    i'll keep this thread open in case it happens again...

    Away from you.
    PLEASE turn it off, the Australian dollar is still higher than the US dollar [​IMG]

    No but seriously, why not set it to get info from like a bank site or whatever? (or is that what it already does?)
