The Infernal Machine

Having been a victim of ‘E-fraud’ before, as the kids these days seem to be calling it, you already know the procedural steps you have to take to get the situation sorted.

Step 1: start changing all your passwords relating to anything that remotely touches the internet 

Step 2 : Get on the phone and start shouting

Step 3: Wait around patiently for things to rectify themselves.

But even if you’ve suffered from having your details being stolen before, when you see it happening you’re still left with a feeling of:

E-Fraud

 This time it was Play.com’s turn to mess up & have a security breach, now some bastard (no doubt a W.O.W nerd trying to find ways of funding his fetish of gold farming – lol epic loots!) down in London has ordered himself 4 USB pens & god knows what else.  However, he made one fatal flaw, he put in his address before changing everything on my account.  So if you or anyone else has ways of making this guys life a living hell, I’m more than happy to give out his address.  Alas it’s something that cant be sorted right away, so no doubt I’ll update on the status of getting everything sorted again tomorrow.

In dire need of cheering up today I met with Rhona, who I hadn’t seen all year to go and see Cloverfield (again), I’m standing by giving that a solid 9/10 as it still stands up after a second viewing.  I should point out I’m also standing by giving Juno a 7.5/10 as its one of those movies, while technically compotent, is instantly forgetable under the slew of better movies that will be coming this year.  But anyway, Rhona seemed to agree on Cloverfield as there was the odd scream from her during the course of the movie.

 In other places GDC, the Games Developer Conference, is also taking place in America where apart from the announcement of Gears of War 2 there hasn’t been much else to come out of it.  However if anything major happens no-doubt there’ll be a blog on it at somepoint.
