Too Much Google?

I've been relying too much on Google. Don't get me wrong I love Google and all it has to offer...BUT!

Recently I've had a problem with some nimrod using my email as his own. I was getting some correspondence intended for him, I fixed that by emailing everyone that was on the correspondence and let them know they have the wrong email address. I thought that was the end of it until I tried to use my Gmail address with my Paypal account (previously registered but not confirmed). So now this clown has MY email address in HIS Paypal account. If he tries to change his password, I'll get the email conformation. If I try to register the email address, I obviously don't know his banking info to complete the transaction.

So I decided to create another Gmail email account using my first/last name, who could confuse that right? (eyes roll). So I let all my friends know that my email is/has changed. I will fwd the old mail to my new account. Just when I think I'm out of the woods...My Blog.


My log in for my Blog IS my Gmail email address, the old one. So now when I log into my Blog to what else...Blog, I sign myself out of my current Gmail account (online).So here's the long/short of it. I think I may close this blog, and open a new one with Word Press, that way if something goes awry with either my email or my Blog they don't fall like dominoes.

Now only if Google would allow you to change your Blog log in. Hey GOOGLE!


Nothing too important today, I just thought this was funny.

The Daily Gripe.

Ok folks, and you know who you are, listen up. It seems to me that 99.9% of those with a "Myspace" have music or some other annoyance play within 5 seconds of visiting you site. And it's just not Myspace, this goes for all the other websites out there who think I HAVE to hear whatever clap-trap they've dug up and put on a site. Youtube is the same way, thank god for the FireFox extension/plug in that stops this crap from playing. There is so much noise pollution, I don't need anymore from some neo-fascist-zoom-dweebie (80's movie reference) with a Myspace/Website.

Ever get in your own way?

I suffer from TMIS (Too Much Information Syndrom). It's hard for me to unplug sometimes and relax. About a week ago our DVR started going bad, we could still get cable and TV shows but we couldn't get the on screen guide. Let me tell you it was total hell! Sounds stupid doesn't it? I agree. You should see peoples faces after I've had their computer for a day, they look like I've brought back their long lost friend.

I wish I could have one weekend (3) days to get away and unplug, no bullshit, no kids, just me, a campfire, a few beers and a few friends.

Even I think this is stupid

I think the term NERD is in order. Maybe I'll change my name to Batman.

National guardsman changed his name to a toy-Reported by Vic Gideon

CUYAHOGA FALLS -- A member of Ohio's 5694th National Guard Unit in Mansfield legally changed his name to a Transformers toy.

Optimus Prime is heading out to the Middle East with his guard unit on Wednesday to provide fire protection for airfields under combat.

"On Sunday, we were announced as the best firefighting unit in the Army National Guard in the entire country," said Prime. "That was a big moment for us."

Prime took his name from the leader of the Autobots Transformers, which were popular toys and a children's cartoon in the 1980s.

He legally changed his name on his 30th birthday and now it's on everything from his driver's license, to his military ID, to his uniform.

"They razzed me for three months to no end," said Prime. "They really dug into me about it."

Prime says the toy actually filled a void in his life when it came out.

"My dad passed away the year before and I didn't have anybody really around, so I really latched onto him when I was a kid," he said.

It took me a minute.

But I got it. I smell an appeal.
