11:55:39 AM : Customer: Issue 154 of Linux Format, with the cover article "Learn to Hack" seems to have disappeared
11:56:29 AM : AgentRouie: Thank you for that clarification. Please give me a couple of minutes so I may check the item's availability. Please stay online. Thank you.
11:59:04 AM : AgentRouie: I'm still checking on the item. Will it be okay if you'll wait for 3 minutes more?
11:59:57 AM : Customer: sure
12:01:35 PM : AgentRouie: Thank you for patiently waiting. Based on our records, Issue 154 was pulled out so you can't access it online.
12:02:07 PM : Customer: Why was it pulled?
12:04:56 PM : AgentRouie: I apologize as I can't provide the exact reason regarding the pull out. I'm still verifying it. It appears that it has something to do with the cover article which has a censorship issue I guess.
If her parents had ANY concern for her having a normal life, he wouldn't have run for President. The moment he ran for President, any chance of a normal life ended. 25 Secret Service? Yeah, it will be a normal field trip with her class, lol.
The only use I've found for them, was when I was shopping, and saw a product a friend had mentioned he was looking for. Had my smartphone scan the QR code on the shelf, it gave me a link to the product info, and I emailed that to the friend.
Great article, but Cracked are part of the problem
Just about to share this article with everyone I know. I attempted to copy/paste the text "On the Net, you just have to assume that everything you see is out to screw you, the only exceptions being brands that you already know."
And when I paste it into Notepad (because damned scammers have made me too bleeping paranoid not to) I notice they added the following to my "copy"
If I were a nefarious bastard, I might write a browser plug-on or little applet thingy that helped users more easily view their miles.
And then surreptitiously phone home with that info. Once I've collected lots of info from lots of users, I can decide whose account I want to compromise and steal miles from.
Far fetched? Yes.
This isn't control for control's sake. This is protecting very valuable information. Credit card miles are very useful things, and very valuable. I just used credit card miles to get a $1200 round trip ticket (April can't come quick enough!)
