For my security...

I love my mail.com account.

I have had it for years.


Before I was Phillipia....


Before I knew what blogging was...


Before Yahoo and AIM and GMail were popular (or at least before I knew about them)...


It was customized for me, by me (FMBM)...


Yes, I love my mail.com account.


MOST of the time...


But not when it logs me out for no gd good reason other than....

You have been logged in for 5 hours so we are logging you out for security reasons - to ensure that noone else can access your account...to log back in, click HERE....
Mind you, I have not been INACTIVE for five hours, I have just been logged in....

But here's the real kicker...


When I click
HERE to log back in...

My account name and password do not need to be re-entered....

They are staring me in the face....

Account name: 5hourlager Password:******

So anyone smart enough to click Sign In can get to all of my email....

Real secure mail.com....


Real secure...

I love stupid stuff like this. I once hacked a person's Cricket phone account because it's security was so weak (I had a very good reason, and have only it that one time).

That sucks.

Stupid email service.

Very good reason? Sure, Mike:)

Ed, it does suck. I do not like just anyone who happens by my computer (aka G-man) knowing who I get mail from....

Oh surely no one would take advantage of that, not in this era of honest, law-abiding, "look out for the fellow man" citizens.
