Escape from the rat trap

Yep. I fell for an Internet scam operation. You can read about the trick here: 
Anatomy of an Internet scam.

Lucky for me the company is based in the United States and faces some limitations on their trickery.

Today I telephoned to cancel the order well within the 14-day trial period, and I got a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. My next step is to actually ship the unused parts of the trial offer back to them. I also sent an information-only message to my credit card company with the details.

Happy birthday Hunter

TODAY IS the late Hunter S. Thompson's 75th birthday. The Louisville homeboy had a way with words:

"America... just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable."
