Getting a new Working Assets Visa Card

Apparently, the same credit card information breach that affected my Discover card, also affects my Visa card.

So, I got a letter today informing me of this fact...and they are going to cancel my Visa card and in 5-7 business days I'll get a new one.

Oh yeah...and sorry for the inconvenience. :**:

Guess I need to move automatic charges back to Discover after moving them to Visa....

Got a new Discover Card

Wasn't expecting it, since my expected expiration date is still a few months away.

But, apparently the recent alert on credit card information breech has affected my Discover card...so Discover has issued me a new card with a different expiration date and such to help protect me.

The only problem was that I was planning to get a different card design, but was putting it off until closer to the expiration.

Well, not wanting to wait until my new expiration date....I took the plunge and ordered the design change.

Duracell let's me down again.

Today, I needed a flashlight. So, I dug into my drawer and pulled out a small LED flashlight that I keep for emergencies.

It wouldn't turn on.

I opened it up, and crud poured out. The battery had leaked and destroyed the flashlight...that's another flashlight destroyed by Duracell batteries.

I tried new batteries, but the light wouldn't work anymore. There weren't any other flashlights handy...so I was screwed.

:##

Now I need to buy a new emergency flashlight...or more.

This morning I played Sudoku for the last time!

That is 4 daily puzzles using the Magmic Sudoku app on my Blackberry. That's because I got my iPhone 3G today.

I had been playing it on and off for over 2 years...more on than off. I reached a ranking of #49.

But, Magmic doesn't have a Sudoku app for the iPhone 3G...and I'm going to miss it :`(

Anybody know of a comparable app for the iPhone?

Living Dangerously at DreamHost.com

I had a vague recollection of seeing in some newsletter that there was a chance to live dangerously and get upgraded at DreamHost.com. But, there were some restrictions....as I recall the biggest was the change of path in homedir.

I was fairly certain that b2evolution was safe as well as the various 1-click installed sites I have. But, I did have some other stuff that I knew wasn't. And, I had been meaning to do something about it.

Well, a while back I had fixed that code... or rather removed it because it had stopped working, and I didn't feel like spending a lot of time of rewriting it....so I updated/resurrected a previous version of the code elsewhere. The updating was mostly in updating path names....

While I was looking at upgrading b2evolution from 2.4.5 to 2.4.6, I wondered what about this upgrade offer at DreamHost. So, I went and found the old copy of the newsletter and decided that I would go ahead and click the link.

I guess now I have unlimited space and unlimited bandwidth with dreamhost. Not really a big deal, since I was no where near using a fraction of the space of bandwidth now. One of these days I hope that all changes :>>

Upgraded to b2evolution 2.4.6

Link: http://b2evolution.net/news/2009/01/12/b2evo-2-4-6-new-year-released-stable

nothing to see, it was a pretty straight forward upgrade. And, the biggest thing that I wanted from the fix...nobody should notice.

What a difference the phone makes

The Panasonic Dect 6.0 Series Cordless Phone seems to have made a big difference in the quality of my other VoIP service. So, guess most of the poor audio issues were due to the Uniden 2.4Ghz cordless phone I was using previously with this service.

Guess this means I don't need two separate VoIP services anymore, and that I can get rid of one to save money....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
