Yesterday, I opened my hotmail to find a spam email sent from my other hotmail account. Yep, someone had hacked into my hotmail account...and sent off some scam email to everyone in my address book.
This is what happens when you use the same password for every account and don't change it for over ten years.
Also, my computer-science expert, Mr Tony Pehanich, mentioned that this might be an inherent security flaw in hotmail and suggested that I move to a gmail account like the rest of the 21st century. Blunt, but helpful. That's why I like that guy.
Thankfully, most people knew it was spam and weren't too upset. (Joe said, "Anyone who knows you would know you'd never send off something with so many typos.") Anyway, still, my apologies to all my contacts.
Now, I've changed my password with a new one for each account. It seemed like a wise choice.
But I can't remember what they are now.
