BofA sent me a new debit card in July. This was their decision. They said there had been security breaches at retail outlets. I haven't been to Home Depot all summer, so I'm cool for now.

Cheap fix for a nagging mouse problem...

My Logitech M315 still works great, but the little round glider pads came off, so it was "running" a bit rough. You can buy replacement pads, but the cost is prohibitive for a lower priced model such...
