Adventures With Lycos

Okay, I wasn't going to post more fun-wih-lycos stuff, because Zort always rolls her eyes at me and says "You need a real e-mail account Dork" but this is too good not to to share.

Paid/free account problems straightened out. (My paid account had run out, but their system had a bug in it that hadn't allowed my payment for resubscription to go through, even when it told me otherwise. Problem all fixed by nice tech support lady.)

So, today I log in and find... I have no messages. None. None in my inbox, no saved messages. None. No folders even, aside from the default home, sentmail, bulkmail, drafts.

I do not panic, for they have warned us that they are moving the paid users to another server over the next 72 hours, and I figure it's just a glitch. I do file a report with Nice Tech Support Lady though, just in case it *isn't* a glitch, since normally when they do things like this, you just can't log in at all, vs. being able to log in but your account is temporarily screwy.

Haven't heard from her yet.

Five minutes ago, I check, and suddenly I *do* have folders.

Someone else's!

I am logged into [guy with username something like mine's] account. I have logged out, and back in, twice. I am still him, and not me.

 I  He gets a *lot* of forwarded biblical inspiration messages. O.o

Among them, though, in his 30-message inbox, was an age statement for betterbuffyslash.

I was good. I deleted it. I did not leave him to be shocked and confused. (Though granted if he ends up in *my* inbox, the jig's kind of up.) I did not say "Everybody send me gay porn, right now!" either.

Ok, I did.1 But only in chat. And I was just kidding.


Also, non-gratuitous icon post. Icon by smithereen, Illyria-at-work brilliance by sisabet and sockkpuppett.


1 Ok, I didn't. I said "Quick, everyone send me gay orn!" But they knew what I meant.
