I just had a moderately convincing sextortion email sent to me. :|

Took me by surprise because the password quoted was indeed one that I'd used in the past. I've looked into it and it's likely that it came from stolen data. Still, though, pretty unsettling. You can see how people might fall for these.

My mate got that same email a few weeks ago. Just ignored it and was fine.

My wife had pretty much the same email a month or two ago. She shat herself because it quoted a password she used to use. I told her as long as that password isn’t being used anywhere now then it doesn’t matter. Either it’s a phishing scam or she actually was looking at filth.

Dirty bitch. :x

Feel bad for these scammers still wanting payment in the near-dead Bitcoin currency :lol:

I got a very similar email a while ago, just ignored it.

I actually reported it to the spam police, but yeah, it's comforting to understand how widespread these are. Like I said, though, you can imagine people falling for it.

Today I'm about to under take a task more perilous than charting the Amazon river. I'm going to attempt to tidy up the cables behind the TV. Pray for me GR.

I've made some pretty good attempts at this in the past, using cable ties to get everything nice and neat.

It's great until you need to disconnect and move something, or change a cable. Then suddenly having the cables be tidy is the worst insult to your time that you can possibly imagine and you'll wish you'd never bothered because now you have to spend just as long re-doing everything all so you can do something with just one strawberry floating cable.

Christ this flu is not improving at all. Started spewing up blood last night too which was pleasant. Doctor I saw was very dismissive of the whole thing and told me to just drink lots of water and occasionally take paracetamol, wasn't very impressed.

I think I'd be asking for a second opinion if I was throwing up blood and a doctors response was "Drink water and take some paracetamol"

If I was spewing blood I would book myself into a hospice as I’d feel it was the end.

Can’t you go to another doctor? I don’t know the ins and outs of your medical condition, but spewing blood doesn’t sound like a good sign.

Yeah I would seek a second opinion at the very least by the sounds of things. Spewing up blood does not sound like a symptom that should be ignored in any circumstances really!

Hang in there Spew Bloke.
