Merry Christmas!

A merry Christmas to one and all from the staff of The Haus. I hope you got all the swag you were hoping for. I got the Loony Tunes DVD set which is extremely cool. We get Christmas #2 when my folks come to visit next week. As if my kids need more stuff. Thankfully, my eldest is getting to the age where his toys are pretty cool for Daddy too :)

Beware the Nigerian Scam

Florida's Sun-Sentinal newspaper has an article on a retiree who was ripped off via the Nigerian scam. The man lost about $320,000 and now is in debt up to his eyeballs. The most amazing part is that he thinks that the scammers were on the up-and-up with him. Thanks Slashdot.

My inbox gets flooded with this garbage every week. As a Christian, the worst part about this for me is that more and more they are trying to prey on people's faith. This undoubtably impacts legitimate charities or people with real needs because it becomes very hard to tell who is telling the truth and who is a charlatan. The old adage is correct: if something sounds too good to be true, chances are that it is.
