The language used here is Spanish, so this clever, wall-scaling family team of raccoons might be in Mexico - I'm not sure: (makes you think!)

Digit: (digit.co) - an algorithmic savings manager.
A potentially seriously useful service. :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:
(FAQ copied below sans embedded hyperlinks/images.)
Frequently Asked Questions
https://digit.co/about/faq

How does Digit work?
Every day, Digit checks your spending habits and moves money from your checking account to your Digit account, if you can afford it. Easily withdraw your money any time.
 
What makes Digit different than a recurring bank savings transfer?
Digit automatically figures out when and how much is safe to save based on your lifestyle. Digit doesn't require you to figure out an arbitrary amount to transfer every month.

Is Digit safe?
Yes. Digit uses state-of-the-art security measures. Your personal information is anonymized, encrypted and securely stored. All funds held within Digit are FDIC insured up to a balance of $250,000.

Does Digit cost anything?
Digit is completely free. You will see "Hello Digit Inc" transactions in your checking account but these transactions are just transfers to and from Digit.

What are Savings Bonuses?
Make money for saving money! Every 3 months Digit will automatically pay you a Savings Bonus (currently 0.20% annually). No fine print, no account minimums. Just sit back and collect your bonuses.

What is the Digit no-overdraft guarantee?
We believe so strongly in our math and our ability to safely identify money you can afford to save that if we overdraft your account, we'll cover the fee, up to two times per customer.

Where is Digit currently available?
At this time, Digit supports over 2,500 banks and credit unions within the United States.

Does Digit have an app?
Yes, we have an iPhone app and an Android app.

Does Digit work with banks located outside the United States?
Unfortunately, Digit is U.S.-only right now. We have hopes to expand internationally in the future.

Do I need a savings account?
No. When you signup for Digit you get your own Digit account which will hold any Digit savings until withdrawn. Any funds held in your Digit account are FDIC insured up to a balance of $250,000.

How do I access my Digit savings?
You can withdraw your savings 24/7/365 and as many times as you want per month. You can access your Digit savings by messaging Digit 'Withdraw' whenever you'd like to move money to your checking account.

What should I do with my Digit savings?
Some of our users have started a fund for emergencies, splurged on a trip, or paid down debt. You can also move your savings to other accounts (for investments or retirement) as often as you wish.

Have other questions?
We are always here to answer them. Please visit the Help

Encryption Won’t Stop Your Internet Provider From Spying on You

I presume you will need to use end-to-end encryption or a VPN with it to avoid this.

What do you think when you see this picture?

"I know that place . . . managed to help lose a boot belonging to a friend of mine over the edge of those cliffs once when a bunch of us were there and messing around. Not very intelligent, and the one booted friend wasn't too happy.
Great birdwatching (cliff/seabirds) there: if you have a pair of binoculars it's amazing. Bits fall off of those cliffs reasonably regularly -- if they are really cycling around there, they must be bored with [regular] life. (Maybe they need to get more interesting jobs?). Wondering why the PDF... "
Cliffs of Moherw

Further thoughts:
there's a tower on the cliffs built in the 1830's by a local landowner called O'Brien. He was also a member of parliament (MP) in London. The stone in the area of the cliffs is a limestone slate, which is still quarried in large sheets an inch or two thick.
The story goes that O'Brien made a bet with a few other MP's in London, that he could build a wall two inches thick, four foot high and a quarter of a mile long. He won the bet.
Couldn't find a great image, but here one:

If the question is why I named it that, then the answer is that the forwarded e-mail I got the pictures from was titled that. The original title of the forwarded email is at the bottom.

Some people want both.  Also redundancy for unexpected problems.
