Just the Equifax, ma'am

Numerous friends have reminded me to contact Equifax or another credit reporting agency to put an identity theft alert on my records. I've done this.

I've also changed passwords on web sites I visit frequently. Why? The bad guy — let's call him Asshat — could look in the Favorites folder on my laptop to see which sites I go to, like me e-mail and blog accounts, and visit them too. If the computer had stored a cookie that allowed automatic log-in, Asshat would be able to click right in and send messages or delete important things. Well, not any more.

Thanks for looking out for me!
