    Hello everyone,
    Just a friendly warning: my account was hacked, and some weird-looking moves were made in some of my games. I've changed my password and will try to recover in those games. No real harm done.

    However, I though I would send out a warning in case this was not an isolated event. Make sure you have a strong password and change it often. 🙂

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the heads up.
    Mine was nearly unhackable before, but just to be safe, I changed it to:
    ***

    So suck it, hackers!

    I used to get Indian hackers phoning me all the time since Talk Talk was hacked for real. They play phoney ambient office sounds and try to tell you that you have a problem with your internet and need to connect to their 'secure server'. Its total BS. I ask them questions, what operating system have they detected the virus on, What is the name of the virus, they just repeat the same jive.

    Just admit it...you were drunk, or suffering a bad breakup. No one will think less of you.

    Not drunk and no breakup. Might be something with my tablet. This is my third attempt to post this reply.

    I have problems posting from my tablet, or typing in-game messages. The slightest movement of the tablet seems to destroy anything that has been typed and not yet saved. It only affects my messaging though, the board screen still works for me - all my blunders are my own!
