Happy 30th Birthday Aaron!

If you don't have the time to do it right, when will you have the time to do it over?

That's what it says in the Random Thoughts section.

Yes, the 13th was my birthday. I am officially old, and have avoided death for one more year. I spent the 13th relaxing and just working on the website, then had a nice pasta dinner. Yesterday I went to the Canadian International Auto Show. On account of the big "3-oh", I think I will buy a bottle of Dom Paringnon to share with some family and a few friends.

Is there a day that you don't have a pasta dinner?

Yes, often.

My belated birthday present was finding out on the 14th that someone had used a stolen copy of my debit card to have a really good time in Montreal. They were going from ATM to ATM pulling out $400 at a time from 2AM - 4AM until the bank deactivated the card. I had to go into the bank on Tuesday to get a new card and I am waiting for them to credit my money back...yay.

That sucks. I hope you get your dough back.

I'm not worried about getting it back because the bank was clear that I would, but I would sure like to know how my card was copied. There was a rash of fraud in Windsor and it was traced to handheld card scanners at restaurants modified with Bluetooth serial transmitters to send card data to a hidden cellphone. And coincidentally, I ate in Windsor just after the North American International Auto Show and paid via debit on a wireless machine...

Damn I forgot to put "soon" at the end of my sentence.

Actually a similar thing happend in Sydney I think. Thieves planted a scanner on the ATM slot and waited for someone to come and withdraw some money. They managed to collect quite a lot of money (I don't remember how much) but they were being recorded the whole time.

Ah here it is.

I was making a joke.

That sucks. I hope they catch them. Although, that sounds pretty cool. Not stealing money like that, but building a modified card scanner that sends information to a cellphone.

They forgot to capitalize 'They' after a period. Damn them!

The phrase from the beginning of the paragraph up to the period is not a sentence because there is no verb in it, so the period should not have been there.

Probably the typist hit the period instead of the comma. Forgivable?

I agree that there should be a comma. However, I believe that "said" is the past participle of the verb "say", therefore the sentence does contain a verb. :)

At ate at the same East Side Marios last night in Windsor, and paid on a cordless machine with my debit card. We'll see if the same thing happens. Call it an experiment.
