    If that is REALLY true it sucks.

    Does that include PayPal ?

    I think the fast checkout, could be a problem, because you do no not even need to log into Paypal.

    Staying logged into PayPal is a bad Idea. To always stay logged in is a bad Idea, Because you are to lazy to log in when you use a website. That goes for this site too. When you do, you have more tracking on. Facebook is a good example. Facebook is a good one to have in your Hosts file.

    I will only change my password When I want to and have problems.

    Don't believe all that you see on the news.

    The HTTPS scare was a good example, Of what Not to do, as a user. People Changed their password before the "so called" problem was fixed, so the new password was able to be had by hackers. They must have been laughing.

    Maybe the new spy systems are now setup to get your new password when you change it ?

    You know JLM I was just talking about the same thing with my coworkers about after you change your password they might have your new one. Either way it was time for me to change it so I did both eBay and PayPal since they sleep together.

    I may find someone hacked my account and had me bid up to $1500 for a Heathkit HW-101!!!

    I REALLY hate passwords. I can't remember them to save me!

    Best to just use the word "PASSWORD" for them all!

    Just use Paypal, they will cover it. So they say.

    That is funny.

    "PassWord" would be more secure. That should be your new one.

    My personal opinion is that these website giants like eBay should now incur a considerable fine for this, because it's lots of data that's gone now. Then it would give them a nudge to get the security sorted out higher. Alright it's not their fault but if Facebook can't be hacked and that doesn't have any financial (unless you use advertising payments etc) information on there.

    I see you bought a Gonset linear amplifier. The two will work nice together.
