They added a different e-mail for the notifications, so if I change something they will get an e-mail. I had a whole bunch of important e-mails I was keeping. Darn, darn, darn. I am so mad; did I tell you how mad I am right now?
A techie friend told me one day, that most hackers go for the contact list in your email account. To prevent this from happening make your first contact a phony one such as az36zAk0e89s1. Something that makes no sense at all. Just make sure it always begin with the letter "a". Since almost all email accounts have the first name listed starting with "A". Whether it be the first name or the last. Once they are into your email account, it is easy to get into the rest.

There were very few contacts, as I've been using other accounts, but still.

If you really want to know, read the ingredients on the package.

Reading the ingredients=TMI. If you like hot dogs Kylie, don't read the list! Unless you buy the good ones like Applegate Farms. They're ingredient list isn't scary.

I submit for your review the following "conversation":

Person1(P1) - I'm going to go over there early to make sure the system connects to their network. I can't remember if I've ever connected to it before.

Person2(P2) - I'm pretty sure you did.

P1 - OK, well I'm still going to go over early because I can't remember for sure.

P2 - Weeelll, I'm pretty sure you did.

P1 - Well, I don't remember and I want to be sure.

P2 - Well I'm just telling you I think you did.

P1 - That's fine, you already said that. I get it. But this is for work so I'm just telling you I want to be sure.

P2 - Well, I'm pretty sure you did.


Would you consider this an argument?

Hmm, good question.

It's time for P1 to say, "What's your point?"
