Hooray, I'm one day older.  37 was a good year, hopefully 38 will be as well!

If I were president, I'd task the CIA/FBI/Squad that took down Bin Laden with tracking down and dealing with whomever is behind Cardholder Services.

Yeah, they annoy the hell out of us, too. Even using the automated 'go away' didn't work... we managed to get a live person and get on their 'do not call', so we'll see how that goes.

learning php in trial-by-fire, seems similar to many other things, so lots of carryover experience from other languages. But as always proper design and encapsulation FTW.
