Re: Schtupid Email Scams

Here's the spam du jour today. Jeez. Major, major Federal felony charges, anyone? It reads just like the "I've hacked your XXXX account via my subtle malware, have the proof of your nasty porn-viewing habits, pay me bit-coins to preserve your privacy" scam letters, with the sexual blackmail thread ...

Hey, think you scooped Dave on that one. :mrgreen:
Yes, he did. :o Serves me right for being busy and distracted; I was wearing my Conehead costume to a party in the Sandwich Islands.

Re: Honestly Honest 2018-12-10

There are so few honestly honest people in the world i can see how getting used to one could be a challenge I suspect that Shawna may come by her honesty and straightforward character quite naturally. She's a Pixie, after all. According to writings dating back to Devon in the 1800s, pixies are "gre...

So far, nothing bad has happened tonight, so maybe it wasn't a sign of anything bad would happen.

Frankly, they need to revise the system to use longer SSNs.

Castel is suspicious of Shawna's intentions, Cas is still holding on to her rivalry in her subconscious.
Not so sure about that myself... she just seems to be a bit bemused by the fact that this friendship isn't quite like that friendship... that relationships don't have to include snark.

Re: In The House 2018-12-03

I think a similar situation for you old folks would be along the lines of your parents trying to act like Angus Young of AC/DC, or perhaps Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osborne, etc, and doing a very campy and very bad job of it. How does that translate? Eeesh. The adjective "shirtless" comes to mind, and in ...

Or, use standard answers, just enter them in a mix of Cyrillic, Korean, and Kanji! Ah, but if you do that, the "I am not a robot" captcha system may insist on taking a blood sample so that it can confirm your ancestry.

Responsible Adult 2018-11-30

So, when they decided to bring Luci "into the know", they told her a lot. She knows about the Time Forest, which implies that she likely knows that Shelly is a Sphinx. And, she apparently hasn't entirely forgiven Shelly for being a bit of a pain as a youngster. This may also mean that Jacqui is well...

The problem,of course, is they didn't specify which grandmother... And the solution of the problem is to lie your head off. Have a different "grandmother" for every site that asks you this question.

What I explain to customers is this. Create a spreadsheet. On the spreadsheet, put in the sites you have accounts, the name of your login, the email address associated with it, and a number that corresponds to a password. Separately, preferably on a physical medium, have a list of passwords, but al...

Re: Comfy Couch of Confusion 2.0 (3.0?)

I have a paper copy of passwords and usernames in a very strong physical safe, and a very close friend with a key to it. I’ll stick to that. That should work just as well. At least you're thought through the issue and done something effective to deal with it responsibly... I'd guess that most peopl...
