Nikon 5100 with only cropping. Not much of a
photo as it has been a busy week for and old lady.
I received my camera last weekend and discovered I had a 263 page manual to digest so I am plowing through major points. Since it is same make as my former camera, some features are similar or the same, others entirely new. One feature is I can set auto flash in the menu and turn it off with a knob on the exterior of the camera without plowing through dozens of menus. It also has a video feature. T.here are many other features I have not yet begun to explore.
The worst of the week was today when I discovered my YAHOO mail account has been hijacked. I spent the day tracking down e-mails sent in my name which I knew nothing about. Very few of my blog readers are in my YAHOO address book. My blog is with GMail and it is not affected.
I have changed my password that may not solved the problem. The perpetrator seemingly is also a YAHOO subscriber and I have supplied what is called the complete header to YAHOO tech support. However I cannot use the account as the header that goes out on my e-mail has all the perpetrator's info on it.
I have had this account for 8-plus years without any problems-only a SPAM once in awhile. But for about a month it seems on weekends, I received about 20 a day. Somehow I am sure this is related.
As soon as I can figure how to salvage addresses and some saved files I will create a new account. It is the only solution. I am sure the 106 addresses that woke this morning to SPAM in my name for CIALIS, VIAGRA, etc from a Canadian pharmacy with my name and e-mail were a tad shocked. Actually about 40 addresses were no longer valid which were returned to my account by that fellow DAEMON.
I cannot imagine people fall for these fake ads, because the products are largely tainted; some have absolutely no therapeutic effect even though they are made to mimic the original product remarkably well..
SOooo, my day has been brutally crushed by a malicious person.
I am thankful my blog and GMail are unaffected. Stay warm. Tomorrow is projected to be warm and Monday, too, with some rain.
