It's going to be at least a couple of years before that happens in all probability though.

I think what pisses me off more is that companies let this happen. It's easy to say that hackers got through a system that had all the right security in place, but very often it's more to do with the implementation of those systems and the fact that companies are lax about security. I know too many people who have worked at companies where they've essentially said it's wide open for a hacking attempt. Seems that most of them only do anything about it once they've had a high profile news item around their security.

What pisses me off is they dump this in the customers lap and say deal with it because they claim it's too expensive to switch terminals over to the chip system. Meanwhile Visa and MC make HUGE profits off the backs of merchants. And yet my bank says, If you go to Europe we'll give you a debit card with a chip for free so you access your account while there. It boggles the mind. It's kind of like the metric switch argument....

Yeah, even when I still had bank accounts and credit cards in the UK (up to 2003) they were starting to implement the chips back then. It's 11 years later and the US still has made almost no progress towards that.

I'm dead in the water due to lack of hardware, my boss is in meetings all day and can't press the issue, so I'm stuck reading documentation for the next 5-/12 hours! :tantrum: :x

..and reading KVR and AmbientOnline... :hihi:

Think homicidal, not suicidal.
LOLOLOLOL.
Vurt I have a few recommendations if you need a short list.



walls are a little too thin here for homicide to be as much fun as it used to be.

my advice
if someone ever says "all i want is total honesty from you"
lie as much as f**king possible.

Agreed.
Last year we had a 360 confidental feedback survey on a particular manager, so I gave honest feedback.

2 weeks later I was sat in an airport lounge with said manager who said "so... you think bla bla bla".
"I was wondering if you'd like to try Magic Mushrooms"
"Oooh I dont know. Sounds a bit scary"
"It's not scary. You just lose a sense of who you are and all that sh!t"
