Nice Try Scammer...

So... apparently, tomorrow at 12:58AM, someone using the ancient Netscape browser, is going to attempt to sign in to an iCloud account I've never had...

More Erroneous Gmail, This Time Causing Confusion

Ugh. Just got three emails in a row in Gmail meant for someone else. They were notifications from the "Indeed" job search website for an Albert Rodrigez in Temecula, CA. Since I get my email in the Thunderbird email client, didn't notice at first that it came to the Gmail address. I'm on Indeed myself, but with my Yahoo address. As many emails as I get in Gmail meant for someone else, I would NEVER use them for anything IMPORTANT. I NEVER get emails meant for other people in my Yahoo or Hotmail accounts. Gmail has a f**ked up algorithm.

I marked the notifications from Indeed in Gmail as spam, and unsubscribed the person. Since I clicked the link in the email, it sent me to that persons account. Had to delete browser cookies as a result before I could get into my OWN "Indeed" account. Don't need any confusion when looking for work!

Remote Access

Think next time I go shopping, I'm going to pick up a cheap universal remote for the bedroom TV. The Sony remote I'm currently "trying" to use originally came with the living room TV. Mom basically wore it out changing channels. You have to press HARD on the "Channel Up" button before it will work. "Channel Down" is R.I.P. The "dot" button for direct access to channels is a "no-go" also.

I traded her the Sony TV remote for my bedroom TV a while back(since all Sony TVs and their remotes are compatible), and the old remote I'm currently using is getting worse by the day. Not gonna spend a lot, since I'm sure a $10 remote would have the code for Sony TVs.
