An Information Announcement

Hotmail says I’m not ME. It says an evil person is trying to pretend it is me, to get into my account and read my steamy emails. It says that to protect me, it won’t let that Evil Person in.

Thank you, Hotmail. I always knew I could count on you!

There’s just one teensy weensy little thing.Β  I AM that Evil Person. And the fact that you won’t let me in, means that until I persuade you to change your mind about me, I can’t see what my favourite bloggers have published recently, and hop around visiting their accounts like I usually do.

Trust me, this is not because I am a self-obsessed blogger who only Posts and never Comments.Β  It is because Hotmail has seen too many Batman movies, and now thinks it is the Caped Crusader.

My HERO!!!



  1. When it’s sorted, you could ditch Hotmail and move over to Gmail… but then you’d be moving from Micro$soft’s evil to Google’s evil… so much evil on our little blue dot… but then again.. a lot of beauty too Rose

  2. I’d put in a promo for gmail, but BEWARE of the “ALLMAIL” box. You may end up deleting mail that you’ve stored in the FOLDERS you create for specific blogs, people, projects, etc. YES, i have lost work projects (emails) due to my overly ambitious fingers, and SLOW MIND.

    Wow, all i can say is, you seem rather calm about this f*** up with hotmail. I usually burst a blood vessel over these internet glitches. xo Good luck Cape Crusader!

    1. Actually I’m usually calm about everything. The only exception was when CS demonstrated his car’s ability to REVERSE PARK ITSELF!!!!! yesterday (with me and Mr F in it). A few startled expletives did come out as CS took both hands off the wheel, pressed a button and this car whizzed backwards into the perfect parking spot!

  3. Hotmail has lots of exPlaining to do! It lets LOTS of spam pass through, but won’t download pics I send to myself.

  4. Apparently hotmail is so passe nobody who matters is using it. I am utterly sick of all the junkmail and frequent losses of emails so barely use it any more. It is being phased out so you may wish to jump ship before it sinks altogether.

    1. Really? I always need people to tell me when something isn’t cool any more, because I never realise it for myself. Thank you, Barb. So what IS in now though. Gmail? (and ps I’m not trying to be funny here- I really am hopelessly behind any time you care to name)

  5. Rose, I have been blocked from my blog’s hotmail account for over two months. I’ve begged, whined, cajoled to no avail. Someone has been doing something MSN sees as security breach. Yes–that’s ME! I believe I did a typo once or twice in my password or some such nonesense…

    I’ve setup a gmail account but have been afraid to change account on my blog. Am not clear what will happen if anything–will I lose my followers?

    I can READ e-mail but cannot respond. What about your situation? To respond, I go to Comments box inside my WordPress and respond there. It’s a pain but has been working for now.

    When did Evil MSN pounce on you?

    1. Oh, last Monday, I think. It’s an awful pain because a lot of my day to day business is conducted via that hotmail account, so people write to me and wonder why I don’t write back – it’s because I can’t open the thing up and have no idea. I CAN respond to blog comments like this – by opening up my blog – but normally my favourite blogs – yours included of course – just appear in my email and I visit them like that. I hope they don’t take TWO MONTHS! That would be tooth-grindingly terrible! Poor you!

  6. Oh, Rose. How are you coping? I would be beside myself if I couldn’t get into my email and check to see which of my favourite bloggers (like you) had posted something new. Evil, evil Hotmail!

    1. ACtually I’ve always wanted to wear a catsuit, but have never managed to get my paunch down to the proportions necessary to look good in one. This is the tragedy of my life – apart from the hotmail affair, which is obviously extremely distressing.

  7. That’s happened to me but with Paypal…. seems I’m the evil person trying to get into my account…Aggghhhhh….. I tried opening another account but my bank details can’t be used ‘twice’…. Agggghhhh…. won’t someone talk to me on the phone like they used to do…..!!!! πŸ˜‰
