11/22   So I have this fear of using automatic deposit through my company.
        I need to put in a 9 digit routing number and a 10 digit account
        number. What if I enter one digit off? I'd be *one* keystroke from
        losing hundreds of dollars. What mechanisms are there to prevent
        this from happening?                           -noob
        \_ They can check that the name on the account is your name, for one.
           \_ So if I want to wire a portion of my paycheck to my mother's
              account [without my name on it], I'm unable to do so? The
              company web site doesn't allow me to enter extra information
              like name, address, etc. It only asks for routing+acct.
              \_ not a great idea for direct deposit.  consider using
                 paypal or billpay for that.
        \_ Just triple-check it.

3/24    How are people transferring large files to one other person these days?
        When I need to send some videos to my parents, I upload them to
        my SpiderOak account, but they don't have anything like that,
        so I'm not sure how to get videos from them.  Does DropBox do this
        for free?

8/6     Amazon and Apple have lame security policies:
        "First you call Amazon and tell them you are the account holder, and
         want to add a credit card number to the account. All you need is the
         name on the account, an associated e-mail address, and the billing
         address. "

8/16    Why does my Y! mail account always full of unfiltered spam
        mails (and they're obviously spams)? Why can't they do
        a better job like Google mail? Why does Y! mail charge
        for exporting email? Google mail doesn't do that.
