04:04 pm - I fell for a phishing scheme!
Someone sent me a link to somewhere involving geocities. The page asked me for my Yahoo login and password. I dutifully entered it, and now it seems that people are getting Yahoo IM spam in my name. The phishers didn't change my password, so I changed it to something else and hopefully it will stop now.
I knew geocities was a Yahoo property, and it's reasonable that uk.geocities.com would be something that would ask me for my Yahoo id and password. Anyway, this is just to warn all of you out there about this.
