  2. what a drag! i got the email from you at an old email address, which is hopeful … but i did most of the tasks on your list tonight … and will finish up tomorrow. thanks dan … you are such a nice guy to share all of this.

  3. Last weekend I was hacked. I changed passwords on my hotmail and gmail. it took ages to sort and was cumbersome. I will follow yr steps here. At the end, i still say bless them Lord!

  4. So sorry this happened to you, Dan!

    Another thing to consider…anytime you log in to a public wi-fi (i.e. Starbucks, etc.) anyone with “firesheep” ( a Firefox add on) and the knowledge of how to use it (why else would they have the add on if not to use it?) can snag the passwords of any account you log into while they are sniffing you.)
