The tl;dr of the story is that if you've provided them your credit card number, it might have been leaked. Also, if you use the same username and password elsewhere, then change them.
THIS IS A GOOD REASON NOT TO USE THE SAME PASSWORD EVERYWHERE. So was the engadget hack. I love password expiration day at work, expecially the arguement, 'but i've had this password for years, and i use the same one for everything!'.
Anyhow. My rant for the night.

What I have been playing a lot of is Game Dev Story, an addicting little game where you run a company that develops video games. There's a lite version also to try out, to see if you like it first.
I really need a phone upgrade. Anyone have an HTC Evo or an HTC Evo Shift for cheap?

What a world. From my home, access to all kinds of information about what's happening. Several radar systems, live pictures of the storms taken from satellites floating above us... Actually, i could have done most of it from my cellphone, now that I think about it.
Do you ever stop and think about the technology that we take for granted every day?

Speaking of which, anyone have a suggestion for an ereader similar to a kindle, long battery life, fairly cheap, but with a bigger screen? Some of the PDF's that I'm trying to read end up being way too tiny on the Kindle's screen.

If you haven't installed it on your Android powered phone yet, this might make it worth the effort. Trillian is the free app of the day at the Amazon app store - normally $5. Trillian is an all-in-one IM/chat application. Combined gchat, aim, facebook chat, icq, etc. Worth it at $5, a steal for free.

Anyway, Commvault released SP2 this week. Normally I'd be all over it, but I think I'm going to wait a week or so to see how the bugs shake out. The issue with backups leaving snapshots behind is really turning out to be a pain in the ass. Still, I think it'll turn out to be an improvement from Backup Exec.
