And Minty thought she didn't know!

I have an old AOL account. Yes, that is awkward. I'm computer literate. But I've had that email address since 1995, when I was a teenager. The address and I had a history. I used it regularly up until this year, actually. I was mortified when it was hacked a few days ago. But even more awkward is telling your friends to watch out for questionable emails from their otherwise reputable friend. A reputable friend with an AOL screen name.

Hey, what's wrong with an AOL/AIM email and screenname? I've had mine since early high school, which was over eight years ago and I still use it! :)

Ooo, first comment! ^_^

I suppose it's only awkward if you're trying to get a job in IT, like I was doing for a few years. :P

From what I've been seeing on my flist, they got Yahoo as well.

You just reminded me I should probably check in to see if my old aol account is still active. And if it is, to maybe discontinue it. I actually used the same aol screen name for one of my other email addresses. It lives on!

Hahaa! Perfect punchline. :)

And like I said, so many people have been hacked lately. Something weird is going on.

I'm guessing it stems from a
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<a http://www.technology-digital.com/web20/yahoo-gmail-aol-msn-hotmail-accounts-hacked-confirms-yahoo">') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

I'm guessing it stems from a <a href=''http://www.technology-digital.com/web20/yahoo-gmail-aol-msn-hotmail-accounts-hacked-confirms-yahoo">breach</a> back in July. Know what would have been useful? If AOL had told me to change my password back in July. Ò_Ó
