    Yeah. LOL

    I replied to her, "This is what you need to do:"

    I sent her a long, detailed explanation of what was wrong with her system and
    how to fix it; I outlined each step separately, explained each entry, even down
    to [then hit the "Enter" key.] The thing was HUGE. But even the neighbor's dog
    could have fixed the system with it.

    And then, of course, I Did The Dirty Deed. <vbeg>

    A couple of hours later, I got a reply from her, saying that she couldn't
    understand a bit of what I'd said - it seemed to be in some strange foreign
    language or something.

    When I finally stopped howling with laughter, I replied," Now you know how *I*
    felt when I tried to read and understand the e-mail you sent."

    I don't hear from her very often at all anymore, but when I do, she's quite
    careful to write in understandable English.

    "Very careful indeed. ROTFL!"

    Naw. No need. My screwup, my responsibility to see it to it's conclusion.
    Well, she is now locked up somewhere, so she is no longer my concern. Oh,
    you see my last message on that?

    My motto is "Ask, and ye shall receive."

    Some people ought to be more careful about what they "ask" for, though.

    Heh. ;)

    Well, after a little more than a year, she finally hijacked my juno
    account. I caught it the next morning because she e-mailed a bunch of
    'undisclosed recipients' from it, but the IP address she left behind was
    the clue.

    I wrote her telling her to grow the hell up, and gave her 24 hours to
    finish whatever she had planned.

    Next day, I logged on and found a new address in the addy book. It was the
    Pres's. I closed the account and she has seemed to have disappeared. That
    was Dec 3rd. No sign of her yet. I guess she is either dead, locked up in
    an insane asylumn, or jail in northern CA somewhere...

    How did she get the ID and password from that account?!?
    Well, we can hope.
    I don't blame you.

    She got the ID two years ago when I e-mailed her once from it. Back then, I
    used one basic name internet wide.
    I certainly can.
    That is being nice. I have called her much worse...

    So then a wise third party drops by to instruct the participants in
    proper newsgroup use, and insult both with a gay-lame.
    This sagacity is invariably welcomed, and the thread promptly ends
    with hugs all around and the exchange of dinner invitations.

    That doesn't explain how she got the password?
    Well, I thought about "^%&$^%*$^*+" and "%$#!%(*&(^*," myself.

    That's one thing I never bothered to figure out. I knew she had been
    trying, so I just kept changing it from time to time. Guess I got sloppy
    Psycho Bitch seems too overused... <G>
