But not by me ... my credit card number was stolen and recreated for a woman named Jessica. I'm covered, but a few comments about the situation. My data was stolen during a recent business trip to New Jersey. When folks complain about the security of online shopping, all I can say (and have said for years) ... I prefer the online experience to the physical alternative of giving up my credit card at every "real world" business establishment. On the web it takes a smart criminal to steal your data. At the local restaurant, anyone with a high school education and some minor training can steal your data. Here at the Hoeg family, I've trained my kids to never make an online purchase unless the url starts "httpS", and they can establish the validity of the vendor. Without the "S", I don't buy.
In the end, low tech did me in ....
In closing, I leave you with a photo of my youngest son's LAN Party (Wikipedia article) which was held Friday night. I was impressed with the setup! Sorry about the photo being a bit fuzzy ... in total we had seven souped up systems churning data! I had never realized that the guys wore a single unit headphone to monitor the computer's audio ... and left the other ear for real world conversations!
