To all: I, the real Jackie, just got an e-mail notice that someone with an IP# that is not mine, asked for and received a temporary password to here.
So if odd-sounding posts start appearing under my name, that will be why. GRR!!!

I hope this isn't a challenge that can't be refused, Jackie!

(And let's also hope this isn't anothe SKELTON in the cupboard!)


I'm immortal until proven otherwise

Good Jackie....hopefully you were notified in time before any real damage was done.

And I must do something about my passwords.....some of them are the same for forums and email (not banking though) whistle

No Communists here as far as I know, Rhuby.

I decided to change my e-mail password, thinking that perhaps accessing my e-mail was how this b**t**d got a new AWAD password sent. I know that somebody got into my e-mail a few months ago, but other than receiving a couple of things from "myself" that I hadn't sent, I couldn't find that any damage was being done. I just hoped that whoever it was gave up out of sheer boredom. But getting a password to here under pretense was more than I was willing to allow, so I took a little action. Rude person! mad
