Recently I’ve received quite a few odd emails from obviously hacked into accounts so I thought I had better check that we all know the correct procedure to follow when we find our email has been compromised.
The obvious symptom of a hacked account is that all your contacts will be sent suspect emails from your account, you may receive bounced emails from email addresses you don’t recognise or you may even be locked out of your account by your provider because your email has been spewing out spam.
If you do get locked out you will have to follow a long-winded procedure which differs with each provider, it involves having to prove you are who you say you are & it is your account. If this does happen it’s not good to just ditch the email address & start again, do try & regain control of your account. There is a useful link on twitter which lists all the email providers support pages:
If you can still access your account or you’ve managed to regain access the first obvious step is to change your password, but before you do it’s a good idea to check that all the updates are current on your anti-virus software. This is necessary just in case your computer has been infected with malware as it could continue to transmit your info to the hacker.
When you know you’re anti-virus software is up-to-date and you’ve changed your password you also need to check your email settings to make sure the hacker has not set up any notifications to his own email account. Check that your signature has not been changed and that your account has not been forwarded to any other email addresses.
You should only really need to contact those that you have sent spam to if the email contained requests for money in any form, if the spam sent was just the usual nonsense with a link attached then everyone will be well aware that it’s spam.
To avoid all these problems make sure you never click on any links if you don’t know exactly what it is you’re linking to. Try to avoid checking your emails on public computers & if you do need to change your password frequently. It’s good practise never to list your email online unless you have taken proper precautions to avoid spam (ask you web designer how) and finally it’s really good practise to have more than one email address have a separate email for logging onto online shopping sites etc and always use different password/email combinations don’t use the same password for everything!

The Impeccable Warrior is not someone who goes around waging war on a whim with all and sundry. On the contrary, he or she is a person whose behaviour is always perfectly in alignment with his or her core beliefs, values and code of ethics. He does only what he is passionate about and he minds his own business.
The Impeccable Warrior always trusts his intuition, gut feeling, instincts and hunches and will only proceed with something if it feels right. Above all he is consistently true to himself.
That’s because by behaving in such an impeccable fashion he automatically feels good about himself, he believes in himself, so feelings of conflict do not arise. The Impeccable Warrior never has anything to reproach himself for, whatever happens. The Behaviour of the Impeccable Warrior is an inspiring metaphor for how to live your life honourably.
In order to make this possible, the Warrior must, of course, spend as much time as it takes to get to know himself inside out.
Let’s take as an example a woman going through a marriage break-up. she tries everything she can think of, she leaves no stone unturned, she even goes with her husband to marriage counselling, before she is finally convinced the relationship is beyond salvation and there is nothing more she can do.
Because she has gone the extra mile, though the break-up is painful, she knows in her heart she is doing the right thing and has nothing to reproach herself for.
This is especially important if children are involved, because although they will inevitably feel hurt, they will at least witness their mother behaving with integrity, and that really, really matters.
Let’s take another example of someone about to leave school after A levels. This young man wants with all his heart to be an opera singer, but his parents insist he should go to university to study law, in the belief that then he’ll be set up with a highly paid and secure career for life.
While that is probably true and shouldn’t be sniffed at, in his heart the young man is a musician, not a solicitor. That means that no matter how “successful” he becomes as a lawyer, he will never excel or be truly happy and fulfilled. He will never rise above the ordinary. Compromising, especially with yourself, never leads to true satisfaction.
The Impeccable warrior sticks to his guns. He sings his heart out till he achieves true mastery despite the risks, despite his parents and whatever the price. Then he has every chance of giving his gift to the world, the gift he was put on this planet to give us, and he will never say to himself, “if only I’d listened to my heart…”
Whatever happens, he will be free from bitter regrets, and his self-esteem remains intact. That means he can live with himself.
Now of course I’m not suggesting anyone should go for an unconventional career just for the hell of it. In this example, the young man had a serious passion and talent for opera singing, or his efforts would have been futile. But we all have a particular talent or gift and sometimes it’s not so easy to spot. That’s why we have to get to know ourselves inside out.
Then, like the Impeccable Warrior, the “correct” path for you to follow will become self-evident.

Pikelets or crumpets, whichever you prefer to call them are a perfect receptacle to carry butter. Ideal for these wet days we seem to be having…is there anything better on a rainy day than sitting watching the rain run down the window eating hot buttery crumpets?
Researching recipes I discovered that yeast & bicarbonate of soda produced the best results so that was what I went with here. Along with some patience & a slow cooking process (I only own one cooking ring) the crumpets were lovely & I will be making them again.
1 tsp caster sugar
100ml hot water
7g dried yeast
150g strong white bread flour
100g plain flour
1/2tsp bicarbonate of soda
As this makes a few I am going to freeze some for a later date, defrost & toast like a shop bought crumpet…I’m sure that will work just fine!

Making her name in the late 90’s as a stand up, Sarah Silverman takes a whole different route as a voice actor in the new animated family film “Wreck-It Ralph”, out on DVD this month. She plays Vanellope, feisty sidekick to ‘Wreck-It Ralph’, an arcade video game character whom longs to be a hero.
She teams up with John C Reilly, who voices Ralph in the film, and is known for his improvisation. “We would do the lines as scripted and then we would go off and improvise off of them and take left turns and have wild digressions and bits of those probably made it on there” she recalls, “(but) The script was perfectly written. Rich (Moore, director) was so supportive.”
A Disney animated movie may seem like an unusual choice for a comedienne who has become famous for her off-colour humour, but as Silverman explains, it’s a dream she would have never thought possible. “I grew up with Disney movies, I love Disney movies but I never imagined that I’d get to be a part of one” she says, adding that the choice may not be as unusual as you might think “It seems like an odd fit at first, maybe to the naked eye. But the dirtiest comic when I was growing up was Eddie Murphy and he plays the Donkey in ‘Shrek’!”
Finally, her character learns to overcome her ‘glitch’ in order to save the day- is there anything that Silverman herself would consider her ‘glitch? “I think that the best comparison of a glitch in my life was that I was a bed wetter” she reveals. “I wet the bed until I was in my teens. And I thought it would be my biggest shame, like my most embarrassing thing. I never thought I would be sitting in front of the media talking about it! But here I am proudly and without any shame telling you that that was my glitch and now I’ve turned it into my super-power because it made doing stand-up not at all scary because I thought ‘what’s the worst that’s going to happen’? People are going to boo me off the stage? I spent eight weeks at camp peeing my cot every night and making the bed over it. It made me brave.”
“Wreck-It Ralph” is out on DVD 3rd June
