It’s been so long since I’ve blogged, or read anyone else’s blog that Yahoo has blocked me from checking my emails because I cannot remember my password.
Fortunately I could remember and access my blog and my google password so all is not lost even if Yahoo has gone all security on me.
The problem appears to be that I am logging on from a device they do not recognize.
Hogswash. I am logging on from the same old faithful iMac I've been using for the last four or five years. (Yeah, if I get more work I just might upgrade.)
So, I eventually remembered my password successfully but then they wanted me to correctly enter the security numbers.
Managed that OK since I'm not a robot or spam or anything.
But then I got the security answer wrong.
Apparently I am impersonating me and don’t know the name of my favourite uncle.
This is perplexing as I only had one uncle. . .
So then they blocked me for 24 hours.
Plan B - I went back and asked them to send me a new password to another account.
I only hope that I can remember how to get into that account as I never, ever use it. To remain anonymous I have not linked my blog or associated emails to my regular email account. Otherwise somehow they figure out you're the same person and all of a sudden - especially if you are on Facebook, which I'm not - everything is linked and any anonymity is just blown right out of the water.
(How very Big Brother of them.)
Yes, indeed, I have been thwarted by my own cleverness.
