It's hard to imagine a life so devoid of pleasure and news that the excitement of a new credit card creates an irresistible urge to post a picture of it, apart from the stupidity. Heh, I posted a couple of days ago about a laundromat, so perhaps I shouldn't talk ;-)

We travel a lot by RV, and DH uses free wifi at libraries, coffee shops, and, yes, laundromats to pay our bills--one of the no-no's in the article. I thought it was safe as he logs into our online bank, protected by https. Since we can be out of town for months at time, what are the alternatives short of paying someone to handle our bills? I do have an iPad and am using 3G at the moment from our campsite, but we haven't set up bill-paying on it. Is that any safer? We used to carry a huge satellite dish for our own wifi, but DH had a lot of problems with it--not to mention how much room it took up aboard our mini-motorhome and that it cost $60/month, and eventually he refused to use it any more.
