and I found out at the grocery store tonight that

^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^HBankofBorg finally deactivated my old ATM card.
They've been warning me for several years that they would...ever since
they started sending me debit/Visa check cards (which I've refused to use)
which they want everyone to have instead of simple ATM cards.  It worked
last week.  I guess they may have had to disable them with some y2k
upgrade...or maybe they just decided to use y2k as an excuse to finally do
it.
