Thanks.

I appreciate the kind words and commentary on the post immediately to the south. And, yes, love you too, brother.

I'll have more to say when I have time and energy. We just found out our ATM number was swiped. No money was lost, thank God, but it's still a pain in the tuchus for such things as, say, auto-debiting. Also, we have friends in need of prayer for a child (I need to be vague), so storm heaven or keep them in your thoughts, as is your wont.

For the curious, and a happier bit of news, I've broken 1000 entries on LibraryThing. A neat feature is the Legacy Library function, which shows which books you share with famous people. Walker Percy and I get along reasonably well, sharing even very obscure titles.

    Same thing happened to us about two weeks ago. A mess. No money lost, but had to wait for new cards, change PINs/passwords, etc.

    Scariest part was, the bank thinks the hackers found our number simply by running 16 digits through their PC until something looked good.

  2. That *is* disturbing. It's amazing how many people I am finding out this has happened to.

    I was told that it wsa probably ghosted off a gas or grocery purchase. I will say that I am most impressed with the bank's monitoring of the situation and prompt action. Makes me feel better about bailing them out.
