    Tested for security?  Does the fact that they transmit order details 
(including plain text client information and an encrypted CC string 
within the same file) via plain old FTP tell you anything?  Do I, 
personally, trust this system?  Oh HELL NO.  Would I, personally, use 
them to place any orders?  Oh HELL NO.  Do I have a choice in not using 
them?  Nope.  I'm merely the one that has to make them work...the big 
guys paid the money.

H | I haven't lost my mind; it's backed up on tape somewhere.
