Writer's Block: You’ve Got Mail!

How many times a day do you access your email account?

Which email? I have created so many emails – I can’t even remember them all.

For instance, I have an email that spam folks got a hold of and sold about a million times. If you send me an email there I probably won’t find it for about a year.

Then, there’s the numerous twitter email accounts. I’m afraid I have had the horrible habit of creating accounts and shutting them down on a whim. I currently have a twitter account, but can I remember the password or the email connected to it? No. So, now I can’t even access it to shut it down.

Then, there’s the email I created for godtube and youtube several years ago. Tried to shut those down, too, but can’t remember the email or password I created for those, either. (sometimes I try to be too clever or witty on these things and it backfires) The one video I uploaded to youtube will out there forever, I guess.

Then, there’s my ebay email. Don’t try to send me a note there because it’s over capacity and will be bounced back to you. I haven’t checked that thing in months.

Which leads me to my real email that I give out to friends and family. Hearing from those people is the highlight of my life…so I check that  periodically throughout the day.

The email associated with this twitter is something like yourmom@gmail.com with a slight twist that I can't remember. By the way, don't try sending a note to that exact email because you'll get someone else's mom....

I know this will chill the hearts of my security conscious sons, but....I write them down. I have a tiny notebook and you'll find them all there. I reason;"I'm not a rocket scientist or businessman or accountant or doctor or writer. I don't have money or secrets or intellectual property or patient information to protect. If I forget or lose these passwords, all it does is inconvenience ME!!" So there it is.

So do tell us...where do you hide that notebook??

I put some of my info on a stone-age computer years ago that I can no longer access! A notebook is such a better idea.

After I had my heart attack, I do the same thing as ba1126..i write it down now to my black book for my sons to find out when I just drop dead one day..

Although I believe some have the hacking ability, we can never be sure if they can still hack the same when time comes. Hahah!

And I did have the same problem before. I just did not learn the proper way, I guess..what more can I say!

*Good morning* :)

And good morning to you too! A little black book is so smart. I'm going to have to get one. Then maybe open up a yet another twitter acccount that I can actually access!

P.S. Please don't drop dead. I can't bear the thought of that!

Oh you're so lovely..
Dropping dead is inevitable..But I still want to be there to see my youngest boy become a Pharmacist! Huh!

Take care! :)

Re: Oh you're so lovely..
In all seriousness...please do not drop dead until you have asked Jesus Christ to be forgive all and become your Lord and Savior. If you've already done that, then the inevitable dropping dead will just take you to a better place!!

Be blessed today!

One of my sons works and teaches computer security!! He's been flown around the world (London, Norway, Brunei, etc.) to teach it!! He speaks at conferences about it and wins hacking contests at those conferences!! And he's only 2 years out of college!! He could probably hack mine while having a donut and coffee!!

I love your son..I mean seriously our kids are way better in technology than us! This I admit..

You can be a lot better than me tho!

Congratulations to your son! :)

Re: Hahhaha!!!
No, technology and I have a love/hate relationship. I can barely manage my cell phone, and it's about as basic as it gets. My computer does quirky things and I need to get my son or hubby to straighten it out.

My son IS awesome! He's coming to Boston in April to speak at a conference and we are finally going to see our newest granddaughter in person!(She was born in late Sept.) He's also going to Wash. DC soon. His 'hacking team' won a contest and are now going on to the next level of competition!!

Re: Congratulations again, for your granddaughter!!!
You must be very excited. I have a granddaughter that was born in the same month - 29th Sept. I haven't seen her in person too for they all live in Australia. One day soon!

You must be one proud Mom and Grandmommy!! :)

Hacking while having a donut and coffee????
That IS impressive.

Like those above I write my usernames and passwords down in a notebook. Finding where I wrote them in the notebook can be a pain though.
Feb. 18th, 2012 01:11 pm (UTC)
Why did everyone think of the little black book idea but me?

You should get someone to hack your computer to find the email addresses and stuff. Just because it's lost doesn't mean it's gone for good from the computer. ;)

Are you an evilvillan hacker??
Feb. 18th, 2012 05:42 pm (UTC)
lol, no. I'm not that great with computers, but I know that it can be done. You just need to find someone who knows how to do it.
