Quick update on unresolved things  
We have a ps3, but the sonycard rebate form won't show up on the web site, so we can't open it until it does. I've ordered heavenly sword in anticipation. I've already ordered a blu-ray disk (because it was cheap on Amazon.)

I asked my phone account to be moved to pay-as-you-go. They said it would take 24 hours and then I could at money to it to get it working. Who knows when the transfer will happen. Sadly I have to pay for January, since my timing stinks and my billing cycle was two days ago. The lady on the phone was surpised it would actually save me money. I guess I'm freakishly weird in how little I use my cell.

I connected the blizzard security frob1 to my WoW account. I've only logged in once, so I don't really know how much of pain or not it will be. G is worried that most of the hackers are attacking accounts from the account management page, though the security question and that the frob might not grant us any more security. Hard to say. Hard to know.

1 For those who don't know, this is a little electronic keychain like thing where you press a button and it gives you a number, likely based on the time. It doesn't change that often, so it's also not able to protect against replay attack.

Account Management Page
I tried it just now to be sure.
You need the authenticator number to log into account management too, so it should be as safe as the game.
And as I read the instructions, you need to phone them if you lose the authenticator and provide lots of details before they will release the account from the authenticator binding.

A lot depends on the eddress of record, so keeping control of one's email account matters. I suppose a keylogger could gather that information too, so nothing is perfectly safe.

I'm guessing that like a lock on a door or an alarm system notice in the yard, this doesn't guarantee to stop a break in but encourages the criminals to attack less protected victims instead.
