It’s been a while since I’ve seen a Gulf station here, but they’re all over Sweden, and they sell hats and T’s and sweatshirts in by the register, so I picked myself up this beauty. If you can forget for a while that the GULF is probably where they get a lot of their raw material, then you can thoroughly enjoy the fantastic colors up there; the choice of light blue is perfect, although i think grey or black would look good, too.
On a really lousy note now: I went on vacation, a guy in SoCal got to my email and —hijacked it, whatever the term is—and told people as me that I was in Cyprus needing money. My password wasn’t THAT bad, but these guys have a way of finding them; I was not the pioneering case of this, and I’ve received some angry emails from people blaming me for this incident. I will accept whatever blame is due, but in retrospect I wouldn’t have done anything differently..although I’ll think twice about a Vacation Responder note again…because that likely was a flashing light for the guy.
I think Dave’s description of my password as “the crappiest password I’ve ever seen” was an attempt to reassure you all that the new password is trickier—which it certainly is, but I was aware of password issues before, and picked that one with that in mind. When a breach occurs, it’s easy to point to anything that could have been different, and maybe the difference would have made The Difference. I would like NOT to be blamed, naturally. If I’m completely to blame, then the guy who did it isn’t. Do we share the blame 50-50? How to proportion it?
I’m done with it now, and truly sorry.
