looks like our one-horse town finally got ziosk (available at local Chili's)

I got our waitress to reboot one for me, so I could see if it was running linux or android or winders or what

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ In today's age, I still don't understand the worry about credit card fraud. Maybe its because I use American Express, but its super easy to get fraudulent charges corrected, within minutes of it happening. I had a sneaky $1.50 charge on my card from *somewhere* and I called AMEX, within 5 minutes in the phone call, the charge was removed, my old card cancelled and a new one overnighted to me. Didn't cost me a penny. Hell, it was almost *too easy*. So, I asked the representative... what if this had been several dozen phony charges, or thousands of dollars in fraudulent charges? Her response..."It's the same process, we would just go through all the charges and you could tell us if they were yours or not". However, I do protect my ATM/Debit card more. I never use it except at my ATM, and only in emergencies. But all of my credit/charge cards? I use the heck out of them, since they offer great fraud protection, which is a huge deciding factor when I apply for them. AMEX is by far and above my most favorite card. They are aweseome with customer service. To give you an idea, we make all of our daily purchases using our AMEX cards. Then, at the end of the month on payday, I pay the card off before interest accrues. Between my wife and I, our AMEX card gets used at least 3 times per day or more (rough guess). I haven't carried cash in about 7 years, as I feel cash is LESS secure than my credit cards. On Mon, Apr 28, 2014 at 11:05 AM, Ed King wrote= : 's ?

=============================================================== From: DaWorm ------------------------------------------------------ I've had my bank card hacked twice from places that had no access to it whatsoever. While credit card PANs are 16 digits, only about nine of them are significant (first four to six are a BIN number to identify the issuer, the last is a check digit) so it isn't even hard to randomly come up with a valid credit card number just by guessing. Lots of places online don't check CVV or even expiration date (also not that hard to guess, most valid cards are within two years of expiration, so only 24 possible combinations likely there). Not to make anyone paranoid or anything... Jeff.
