Let's Add 'Hacked' To The List


So when you are sitting there working on your computer and suddenly a bunch of "Delievry Failure" e-mails start hitting your mail box, you know there is trouble in River City. (Green River City, that is). Well, that is what happened to me. I was working at school yesterday and found that I had been the recieptent of a Chinese hacker. Neat. So I went in to paranoid mode- changed all my passwords, sent out apology e-mails, and hoped and prayed that it would be over. So far I am okay. I guess we will see. How mortifying to have junk e-mails being sent from your e-mail address. I had several people call and ask me if I had sent it and even more neat was that one of my college professors wrote to me and asked if I had sent it to her. The grammar was even worse than I would use, so hopefully that is a clue to those poor reciepients. I even went through and deleted addresses that I no longer use. So, after killing half my address book and worrying all night, I hope that we are back on track. I did start a new e-mail address just incase my other one ends up being killed.

Today (Friday) has been spent writing a paper for my college class. After 6 hours and a lot of writing, it is done. I have submitted it for grading and we shall see how that goes. Oh, and I took my second on-line quiz in my law class. I only missed 2 questions out of 50 and I have appealed those with the teacher because I believe I was right (pushy of me, I know- but she has asked us to appeal them if we believe that we are right).

I guess I best go as I need to run with my wife to a 90th birthday open house for a wonderful lady here in town. I have known her for a very long time. I used to mow her lawn back in the day as well.

reminder- watch your e-mail and make your passwords REALLY hard to figure out. I thought I did, but apparently not. The new one won't be as easy!
