I'm sure you've watched Simon's Cats on YouTube, right?

I'm with you on that and I'm going to discuss it for a bit! I have learned never to 'like' someone/anything. I didn't 'friend' anyone after seeing what that can lead to on Facebook! Oh, my. That's why I quit it.

Google Plus is the Devil's Tool. And those aren't all.

As I said---- I'd really like to 'like' or 'friend' but it often doesn't just stay there.

I don't know what DC has in place to protect us. Maybe it's safer. But I still don't take many chances.

It may actually be legit. If you google "Mehmet Aydin Mainz" and click on "translate this page" (if you need to translate it.) you can find a research assistant of that name.

It doesn't mean he sent the original message.

We name all of our computers. It just makes it easier when sharing on the LAN. I name my cars. The current one is Sigrid. I have a large food processor, like the one Steve has. I might name it Big Bertha. Oh, and the dishwasher is called the washemupatron.

There is a simlar post on the Gardening Web with replies that are similar to ours and there was a google reference to the "Appliance Blog" which doesn't seem to be there when you look on the blog.

Either it's genuine and the poor man is wasting his time or the hacker is really stupid and deserves to waste his time!

He (Mehmet Mainz) may or may not be real. I still won't participate.

Well of course not. I was curious (nosey) enough to want to investigate

The question is, why do you call the stand mixer "fridge", the oven "coffee maker" and the dishwasher "juicer"?
