1 Hi,
3 I'm hoping someone can explain this to me and maybe even offer a
4 workaround. This may only apply to us U.S. folks. Banks and credit
5 card company are in the process of changing the way you log into a
6 website. It "registers" your computer when you sign up as a security
7 "feature". Problem is, this doesn't work with Linux and I suspect it
8 doesn't work on a Mac either. I'm not sure, nor can I find out, what it
9 uses to "register" my computer. It may be a CPU serial number or
10 something like that.
12 I also don't know if this is Linux or the web browser, I use Seamonkey.
13 I plan to test a theory at my brothers that uses winders XP and
14 Seamonkey to see if it works up there.
16 Does anybody have a clue if this is Linux itself, the browser or a
17 combination of both? I'm not buying and installing winders either.
18 LOL I may close my account and go back to cash but I'm not using
19 winders. If you go here, and click on
20 the link for "read more" it will let you download a .pdf file. It gives
21 a little more info.
23 Any ideas?? Am I cooked?
25 Thanks
