***Secret FSR Fender guitars? Yes, they exist, and they're right here

yay, free skype account for absolutely no reason at all

In yet another example of Stupid Crap That Happens With Rich's Yahoo! Account, I check the account and get this email:

Hey, cool, a new Skype account - THAT I DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR in a language I don't even speak. Yes, it's a real email and not a spoof/scam/phish.

Somehow someone managed to register a Skype account with my Yahoo! email address. I can't even tell you how that's possible being you have to confirm your address in order to do that - but it happened.

I said "Well, fuggit, as long as it's registered...", go to login to Skype, hit 'Forgot Password', had the system send me a new temporary password, used it, reset password and now the account I'll never use is officially mine.

And this is one of several reasons I'm happy I don't use Yahoo! as my primary email anymore.
