I done got my computer hacked this weekend, which makes me angry. I've been running around today (at work) changing up passwords...which means I'll probably forget most of them, and be using the change password button on most of the places I hang out at to change them AGAIN.

I know that the chances that some ass is using my Facebook account for nefarious purposes is pretty slim, but why take chances, right?

See you all around. Hopefully.

Oh, and if I totally start spewing crap and 1337-speak, it's not me. I am not a haxxor, or whatever they call themselves nowadays (obviously, or I would have gotten so pwned)!

Why target you? That's just so bizarre. I'm really sorry for all this. I'm so paranoid now. I got Norton and Macafee. I hate both for the system startup slowness but feel a little safer.

I had a firewall active... Apparently the hacker guy took it down, and disconnected the MacAfee, and turned off the Windows Security Center, etc. Plus, it apparently takes them back down every time the computer reboots.

He also had something going on in the background, but I don't know what that was. Some kind of access or something. He was totally in my computer. It's actually a wonder he/she messed up enough that I found out about it.

Got to wipe and start over. That should do it, from what my IT guy says. He said it in the way that it's possible it won't do it, though... We will see.

29-I-2008 or Clarification

Based on a certain conversation in TC, I just want to say that I am fully and totally aware of the effects of what I have written/will write in this blog could have on me in the future or sooner even. I don't care. I wasn't and I'm really still not ashamed or regretful or a word of it. Go »

Heh. Today, the new VP of Agricultural Research or whatever is touring our facility, so ain't squat gonna get done. I had to spend most of the day yesterday cleaning up and making the lab basically look like no one does anything. Go »

4-XI-2008 or Historic Vote

Well, I just voted. I have to say this is the first time that I have been totally regretful as I walked out of the polling center. Even now, I have a pain in my stomach, and I'm wondering to myself, "Did I do the right thing?" Go »

10-VII-2006 or Thinking too hard

I'm thinking too hard about it. I'm letting my fears get the best of me. I need to relax and just deal with things from a position of confidence, not weakness. Go »
