Thursday: Outlook Improving

It seems someone got hold of my credit card details and went on a short-lived spending spree, before my bank caught it and cut them off.  Not sure how, because I'm pretty careful with it, but all it takes is one website that isn't careful and splat.

I wouldn't be too surprised if we hear in the next few days that some internet company or other got compromised.

Anyway, that's one of the things that messed up my Monday and Tuesday this week, though I only found out the cause of the mess today.  New card is on the way now.

Of course, this happened right when I needed that card to pay important bills, but there's not much of the month when I don't need that card.  So, ugh.

Also need to check that AVG and Ad-Aware are up to date and scan the hell out of my computer, in case I picked up a nasty.  Just did a full AVG scan on the weekend, though (it runs Sunday night), and it came up clean.

My day job really came through for me here, letting me put some urgent bills on a company credit card.  So I don't need to worry about the lights going out either virtually (one of them was for server hosting) or literally (the other was my electricity bill).
