This is why decided to NEVER send an email, pay a bill online, do banking online, have a wireless router at my house, and I"ll NEVER EVER NEVER have an internet connection that can be spywared.

I may get rid of my wireless telephone and the cell is history since the signal can be picked up by a radio head with a scanner and tin foil hat.

Come to think of it, I'm getting rid of my company EZ Pass modules,

I gotta tell you, sending out a 1000 estimates a year is giving me serious hand cramps, and thank god for self sticking stamps!

No wonder my wife thinks I'm a wise ass.
