I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:That happened to me once - an ex-girlfriend was the ultimate culprit, though the person who actually did the hacking into my email account was her latest screw - she wasn't computer savy enough to pull it off alone. Severe pain in the ass! Luckily, everyone who recieved various emails was very understanding (Spritie here in HoP among them) and had actually been more cinfused than pissed off about anything I had supposedly sent.

I double dog dare anyone to do that again!!!

Tell ye what Cole, you hold em, I'll beat em, then we'll swap ok?

Then we can let ms Pixie have a go too.

On a more serious note tho, Pixie do you reckon they've accessed your account from your PC?

Posted:cani insert things in their anal passage please?....

hang on...didnt this happen to cass a few months ago?...

im guessing you all have an easy to remember password as do most people...this is silly....

a few tips on choosing a password:

1)dont use sex, god or love...these are the 3 top passwords.

2)have one that is nothing to do with anything that is spun.. this includes "poi" "staffer" etc..

3)football teams, names of pets and names of family are also dumb and asking for trouble..

4)the best thing to do is to gete a dictionary...flick through it and stop at a page..the first word your eyes come across...have that as your password...

oh...this is UCOF btw

I hope not


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:I have heard that any word in any language can be haked in about 30 seconds. If you add a number or capital letter that takes longer like 90 seconds. Throw a number in there and it takes tha hacker a few hours. The best password is not really a word at all, has at least eight letters, with one capital and one number. Take a sentence or phrase you can remember and take the first letters, have one letter capital and replace one with a number.

Example: take the sentance "I really like to poi in the evening" your password might be "irl2piTe"

Ok so it's a ghetto sentence but you get the idea. The other thing is I rotate my passwords every three months. So the first password you start with gets used once and then does not come around again for a full year.

A friend of mine who works in computers and passwords and stuff told me about all this. It seems to make sense to me anyway. Well, just though I'd add my two cents

Peace and poi to all

Posted:well done Ieuan,
a most logical suggestion.
It has both the attributes of difficulty for the cracker and ease of recall for the user due to its mnemonic format.

In other words, easy for us s**t hard for them

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Posted:Hey, hey guys... lets not be too harsh on this ellusive guy.. I mean, hey, he probably has his reasons, he has his story too... So what if he's turned out to be a prick in life, he was probably attacked by an angry swarm of slugs when he was twelve, or had a mildly angry daddy who made him slightly upset when he didn't want to eat green food. Then again, he could possibly have attended a school where all the teachers gave him criticism because he a got a quesiton wrong every now and then, maybe even he was dumped by a girlfriend... sometime... and this filled hiim with rage for everyone... I mean, come on, this guy, he probably is really lonely and spends all his time dreaming about frineds and other poeple who don't waste their time being lonely and stuff, heck, in his twisted little mind, mainmed through a lifetime of the unique torment and rejection that this poor soul has suffered, he probably thought he was doing you a favour by emptying your in box... So, lets all spend a moment, to give a thought for the idiots out there, I mean, hey... if it weren't for those selfish and ignorant fools, we'd have a lot of unemployed policemen, and we don't want that... do we now...

Posted:the great advantage of being a HoP regular is that chances are that you are luverly and that 'malicious abuse' of your account by a third party is immediately seen as out of character.

unless of course you are seven of nine, becuase we all know how much coughing up a furball gets on ya nerves...
