Christmas Lights

I stopped by Big Lots and picked up some Christmas LED lights. The ones with the most potential is the battery operated strings - there are a dozen LEDs and a battery case - I don't plan on batteries - this summer i picked up cell phone charger at a yard sale that put out 5 vots @ 1amp for $.25 - an Arduino (clone) one of Adaftruit industries wave shield, a little project re-purposed for Christmas, and some power FET's - My cubby will look soooooo spiffy this Christmas.

Kinda Scarry

I started getting phone calls @ work about my loan applications... Trouble is I hadn't made any!
Plus I NEVER use my voice number @ work for any online transactions (that i remember) - That is why I got Google Voice...

Then I hear about all the passwords that someone got from Hotmail, Comcast, Gmail... Seems that I was one of the" lucky" few and they have my information - and evidently tried to get some money.

Kinda scary when everyone sends you an email with you account credentials when you signup and /or change your password - if someone gets your main email password - they have all those too...

Changed my password to something that will never be on any rainbow lists.. and will keep changing it for a while .

Hope you faired better
