I remember I got the C-Kermit source code from college back in 1988. I had to do crazy things to upload the code to a Dual S100 Unix computer at work. I had dial into work via modem and upload each source file using "cat filename" on the remote system and doing ASCII uploads from home. It took me several days but the code compiled and worked so I had Kermit at work now.

You still write checks for payments? I set up payments on my bank account and so I just login to ATT's website or use the ATT application on my iPhone to see how much I owe.
I had to get a new debit card a few years ago as someone got a hold of the card number and PIN code. I suspect I used a tampered ATM machine at a super market one day and I was losing $300.00 a day for 4 days until I logged in and saw those fraudulent transactions. I immediately called B of A and they refunded the money after a couple of days. They started an investigation and then sent me a letter about a month later saying that I didn't have to return any of the I was refunded. Not sure how they researched it but the ATM transaction were made late at night or early in the morning while I was asleep.
