    had something interesting happen to me the other day. my son's school lunches are paid for online to a third party company that handles lunch monies for the entire school district. every couple weeks or so, i go and log-in to my account and add $20.00 to his lunch card.

    anyways, i tried to log-in a couple days ago and got a pop-up error saying that the school district my son goes to is no longer a part of their program. furthermore, all money that was left in the accounts was forwarded back to the individual schools. i was then directed to a 'cheesy-looking' website with a new registration form to fill out and new options for adding money to his lunch account. i chose not to go through with the registration process until i contacted the school to find out what was going on. of course they had no idea what i was talking about, and when i tried to log into the old account today, everything was back to normal.

    according to the programs listed below, my computer is completely clean. how did this happen?
