I cross reference a personal database with all known birthdays via a back-end call to Facebook (FB) API's within my personal FB application.

Once a match is identified, an auto-responder posts to that "friend's" wall using one of 276 preformatted birthday wishes, all of which are customized to give the illusion of being a personal entry, including the occasional typo.

When that person posts a comment, my FB app will pick up on it and notify me via txt msg of the comment. If the comment is personal, other than a "hey, thanx!" or something, I will personally reply back. Only the rare person (other than immediate family) gets an in-person or phone call; that is, unless I'm single (of which I'm not D'Oh! | :doh: ) and they're a hot & single babe Rose | [Rose] (of which, I don't know of any such persons... Sigh | :sigh: )

What's really funny is, I put my Birthday as January 1 Suspicious | :suss: on any and all websites, including FB, and people who've known me for years, even some close family, post "Happy Birthday" wishes on that day... OMG | :OMG:
