|Aug-12-15|| ||OhioChessFan: Little Charlie and the Nightcats -My Next Ex-Wife
|Aug-16-15|| ||WannaBe: So, finally, after 5 of my friends recommended Dexter I saw the first episode...|
Does that mean my friends think I have a killer personality?

|Aug-18-15|| ||WannaBe: Man, if I <EVER> get rich (enough), I'm gonna turn my basement to look like Cheers!|
|Aug-18-15|| ||NakoSonorense: Dexter is awesome! I watched all seasons on Netflix a few months ago.|

<CybelAngel also said it counted some 15,000 .gov or .mil addresses in the dump, suggesting that American soldiers, sailors and government employees had opened themselves up to possible blackmail.
Using a government email to register for an adultery website may seem foolish, but CybelAngel Vice President of Operations Damien Damuseau said there was a certain logic to it.
Using a professional address, he said, keeps the messages out of personal accounts "where their partner might see them."
"It's not that dumb," Damuseau said.>
Huh?!!? It's not dumb?? It's plain STUPID!! Get yourself another FREAKIN' email account, they are free!!
Obviously the trolls here on CG are smart enough to get free email account, create another handle on CG and keep trollin'. But .gov and .mil people don't know how to create a free account! Go figure.
|Aug-19-15|| ||WannaBe: We have some "Brilliant" criminals, here:
|Aug-19-15|| ||Penguincw: I also heard of some story about a criminal who tried to rob a bank, but at that very moment, he received a phone call saying he won a contest. Over the phone (and with the bank teller right there), he surrendered all his personal info, including his full name, address, phone number, etc.|
Is it true or did someone make it up? Either way, that would be a <great> way to get arrested/caught.
|Aug-20-15|| ||perfidious: Sounds like a nominee for a Darwin Award, if true.|
|Aug-20-15|| ||Jim Bartle: The Woody Allen movie "Radio Days" opened with something vaguely similar. Two robbers were ransacking the house of a family vacation. The phone rings, it's a radio contest, they answer the questions right.|
The family returns from vacation to find everything stolen. Then later that day a truck arrives full of all the prizes they had "won" in the contest.

Happened again, installed 2 Win10 security patches, mouse refuse to work. Looked at the bottom of the mouse, no red light.
Unplugged/replugged it into another USB port to get working again. It's a MPC mouse by Microsoft:
|Aug-24-15|| ||WannaBe: Win10 have built-in anti-piracy software detection:
|Aug-24-15|| ||waustad: In my case, I tried copy/paste from some Austrian sources that had lines too long so that there were problems. I sent emails explaining the issue and resubmitted ones I'd edited to make them work. I also tried dealing with non-ASCII character issues and asked about the Swedish championship. They said they'd get it from TWIC but nothing happened. As of now I probably have at least 50 submissions that they've blown off. I'm done.|
I've sent emails to them about all problems I was aware of. I got prompt and courteous answers sometimes and got the impression that they just nuked them on others. Which person did what? I don't know.
|Aug-25-15|| ||waustad: I usually use emacs as my editor and copy and paste from there. I've asked them about non-ascii characters and such, and as I said, sometimes the answers were helpful and sometimes they were non-existant. After earlier complications, I usually ran them through an engine to make sure things worked. There were a few strange things that happened like a tournament in Vienna where they used nonstandard numbering of moves. I sent a message warning them to see if they worked. I guess they got tired of any complications so I got black balled.|
|Aug-25-15|| ||WannaBe: I guess it's OK to carry toy hand grenade in airports in Spain.|
|Aug-25-15|| ||WannaBe: Anyone else seeing a black square on the post confirmation page? I only see it using IE. Not with Edge, or Chrome...|
|Aug-26-15|| ||WannaBe: We have another genius here:
|Aug-27-15|| ||waustad: This is the second time I've gone Larry Niven today, but "Think of it as evolution in action."|
|Aug-27-15|| ||WannaBe: <waustad> I'm not 100% sure of that reference...|
|Aug-27-15|| ||WannaBe: Great, now I have to apply security patches to my fridge.|
Wait, I don't own a smart fridge...
|Aug-28-15|| ||waustad: Here is the novel where the comment was coined: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oath_...(novel)
It's sort of like saying somebody got a Darwin Award.|
|Aug-28-15|| ||WannaBe: <waustad> Aaaaah! =))|
|Sep-03-15|| ||WannaBe: Came across this article:
Kinda made me wonder, how many of CG.com member have (the same) Russian IP address(es).
