And The Password Is...UPDATE

Somebody up there doesn't like me. Went to pay my cell phone bill today. My normal bill of $125 was $919. Four additional numbers were added to my cell phone account in November, in Illinois, at an Apple store. By spammers or hackers or some other idiot who spends time screwing up our lives. After 1.5 hours on hold, with customer service, and with the fraud department of AT&T, the problem was resolved (or at least so they say). And of course, I had to change all my passwords. And passcodes. And usernames. And so on.

All this virtual communication is going to be the end of us.
