I went to my amazon account today and it would not accept my password.
It forced me to reset. It is linked to my email (two-factor) so if someone else had reset it then I believe amazon would've sent me an email as the hacker tried to reset so I don't know how this would be possible.
Also, the account looks fine -- no other problems.
The only way I could get in was to reset my password -- it never would take my original password.
Anyone else heard of this problem or had it themselves?
Ceri, who set up this JustGiving page[^] for her son Andrew after he lost everything in a fire, is an old friend of mine. I’ve known Andrew since he was born, and he’s an amazing kid (young man, now). He had a difficult childhood (with an abusive father) but has come through it and grown into a well-adjusted bloke determined to help others in similar situations, and has trained (and works) as a social worker.
There is absolutely no reason anyone here should want to contribute, but if you are feeling generous - any amount - your help would be appreciated. They could do with all the support they can get. Thanks.
Well, indeed... the kid's young, just starting out, and not well-off. He'll learn - but I don't think he's the only young person to not prioritise insurance when they've just moved out from home and renting their first place - you have other things on your mind.
The MMA (MIDI Manufacturers Association) www.midi.org has been nagging me to donate $5/month. They count 42 paid subscribers with a fundraising goal of $25,000. They count (or once counted, many moons ago) Yamaha, Apple, Microsoft, and Roland among their members.
How fleeting is the glory of this world. One decade, an industry will make fortunes that the likes of Ray Kurzweil will retire on and be nuisances the rest of their natural lives. And a couple decades later, they'll be begging for chump change from hobbyist programmers with sweatshop jobs (the likes of me)!
