Warning

It seems someone has hacked into my blog - John Gray has had a few problems with it, and I just got disconnected after changing my password, so when I went onto Google to find it, there is a message supposedly from me, thanking everyone for following me in 2015.

I did not write this message, so either Google is putting words in my mouth, or I have been hacked.

So if you get any strange notifications (I mean stranger than normal) they won't be from me. I will try to sort this out asap.

It could be to do with the new year, because my screen-saver disappeared on the stroke of midnight. Any advice or similar experiences would be welcome.

  2. It was probably me the other night when I couldn't remember anything I did and anyway I was fed up with waiting for you to thank me for following you all year so I am sure it was me.x

    1. Oh! How strange. As if I would thank everyone for following me! I reckon it's a midnight 2016 thing.

    1. I don't know. It's not as if I am not paranoid enough as it is.

  5. I am going to pretend nothing has happened, because I have a feeling that nothing has, after what Jack@ has told me. Weird though. Carry on.

  6. Someone hacked into my long closed blog too. Actually quite liked what they did. It must have happened when I briefly opened it again via my smart-phone to do a New Year post. Have cancelled and retreated. Weird.

    1. Yes, I think the weak links are phones. How irritating that you liked what they did!
