Not My Doom!!!! Grrrrrrr!!!!!! [Jan. 30th, 2004|06:00 am]

I'm a bit pissed off...my website hosts are utter morons!!

I emailed them to tell them that the mail program on the server (which incidentally, I can't even use to send mail from) is being used to send spam somehow, including that MyDoom virus. I know it's coming from my webserver as I only use WEBMAIL, and have uninstalled outlook on this machine years ago. I've done thorough virus checks anyway, just to ensure, but the comp I use is as tight as a gnat's chuff so I KNOW it's not me.

I've also received spam emails from email addys @vampgirl.com that I haven't set up, WITH the sodding virus attached. I emailed my hosts and spelled it out rather more clearly than I have here, and they replied with a couple of links about the virus and telling me that it uses my address book.

I HAVEN'T GOT A SODDING ADDRESS BOOK!!! I USE WEBMAIL!!! MY WEBSITE SENDMAIL PROG IS SPOOFING FOR CHRISSAKE!!!

Morons. They better sort it out soon...my .com mail is sending me 84 happy spam emails daily and 80% of them are blessed with the frigging virus.

.....

On a lighter note, I've learnt all my lines already, and had a good theatre session this evening...lots of tableaux work and being manipulated like a floppy doll/piece of clay...sounds pretentious, but think 'Weekend At Bernies' and you get the picture lol!!

Went to work at 9pm, sat all night looking at the toys in the Argos catalogue...OMG I WANT those Barbie Fairies!!! They're so pretty!!

Also decided to spend 20 quid on a kid's easel so I can sit and paint comfortably, rather than sitting on my bed getting a cricked neck and flinging paint all over the duvet/walls.

Ho hum...staying up till lunchtime again today...waiting on a reply from my web hosts...

Grrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!

Two hats are better than one?
Burning the candle at both ends as usual then hehe...

You've always had an active imagination, and it's especially true today. Spending time on artistic endeavours and household renovation projects will keep your spirits high. Don't be surprised if your efforts attract favourable publicity, as your work is a cut above the competition. If you'd like to venture into a new industry, this is a good time to do so. You won't have to quit your day job; wearing two hats comes naturally for you.

It's going to get worse before it gets better. It's in an attempt to infect as many computers as possible to attack www.sco.com and www.microsoft.com on 1st Feb. It's a complete pain in the arse, mainly due to the fact auto-responders re-send this bloody thing al over the place. Whoever wrote it needs impaling on something in a particularly sordid farmyard.

Re:

LOL! The further explanation they have given me is that someone I have once emailed has it and is sending lots...HAHAHAH!!!!!

So that explains why it's spoofing from my server then...oh, and the fact that they've tightened up their own email security so I can no longer email them from Yahoo, Hotmail or any other web/random mail address??

I think they're covering their own faults and trying to palm me off with a lame excuse lol!!

Let's hope this dies down after the 12th. I'm getting fed up with deleting 100 of these damn things a day from my limited webmail space!!

You know, since you mentioned in a previous post having tea and a cake, I desperately wanted to do the same. Lo, come payday I find myself at the PC, with a mug of tea on the desk and a teacake. Well, it's kind of eaten, it did not last long, sadly. It's a cruel, cruel world we live in...

Do you play Pokemon still at all? I bred a male Skitty with a female Minun and they had a Minun son who inherited it's father's move ATTRACT! I can tell you, I nearly fell off my seat at that one!
