I finally just completed two days of struggling to regain my access to my e-mail system under Spectrum and Outlook. Something happened to my ability to “send” e-mails from Outlook, and then it all went downhill from there. I got onto Chat with Spectrum and as we were beginning to conclude, suddenly the chat session ended, but not before a message flashed onto the screen, something about how some Spectrum technical change had caused a problem with e-mail that seemed to reflect what happened to mine. But then, I continued to have no access to my e-mail. It kept asking for my password, which I was unable to provide, because the Tekkie had changed it just before we lost contact. When I tried to change it via their system, it kept asking me for both the new password, and my MAC ID. I looked on the Spectrum modem for the MAC ID, thought I recorded it, but that failed to work. So, then I was stuck without a valid password. Therefore, I also had no access to my e-mail.
Passwords are becoming the bane of my existence. It seems I need to change a password every time I turn around. I had settled on a nice new one a while ago, and suddenly I was unable to use that one—it was an oldie, don’t you know.
But why do we use passwords on everything? Well, because there are crooks all around us. Apparently America is filled with con men. Well, maybe the whole world is filled with con men, following Donald Trump’s lead. I mean, if it’s ok for the President of the United States to be a con man, then why not everybody?
And so, we use passwords for everything. And we periodically have to change our passwords, don’t you know? I mean, wouldn’t do to keep that same old thing, cuz the con men of the world will soon discover our passwords, and then we’re screwed.
So, get out your table of random letters and numbers folks, and get on with this password juggling game.
And speaking of con men, what is our ex-president up to lately? Well, he was asserting that he was going to be arrested on Tuesday, and he was urging his MAGAHead violence crowd to repeat their January 6th actions and protest peacefully, like they did on January 6th. But nobody else seemed to know anything about this supposed arrest. He really is amazing. He continues this game of conning the American people, urging them to do evil things, and then pretending he had nothing to do with any of it. And his gangbangers continue to love him. I keep wondering whether this is what happens when the head of some Italian Mafia crew gets into trouble. Does he escape the same way? Do Mafia bosses ever go to jail, or only their underlings? Well, No, some mob bosses, Al Capone, John Gotti, Lucky Luciano all served time in Federal prisons, mostly as a result of the RICO Act. But Trump, maybe because he served as the World’s Greatest Mob boss (President of the US), has avoided prison. He does seem to be creeping closer and closer, however. Makes me kind of wish Alcatraz was still open. Or maybe we should send him down to Guantanamo. Hey that would be nice, huh? Then his MAGAHeads would have to go down there and face the US military to spread their hate.
OK, go for it dudes.
