Recently I was informed via email by persons (three occasions) that they had my password. They did indeed have the password I use for my PBEM. I used to use that password years ago for some other things, but currently the game is the only thing I can remember using it for. I informed Steve of this event. So far they have not done any mischief to my PBEM that I'm aware of. Naturally, if I lose I'm going to blame them.

I guess I recommend not using a password for your PBEMs that you use for anything else.

What you need to do now is to hunt them down and eat them. Or feed then to hogs and then eat the hogs.

You can change the password on your PBEM game files.

I'm not worried about the game, what are they going to do? Steal the Akagi?

Now that I think of it, I did use a similar password for my current starship's security. Maybe I should change that. You know, I stole that starship from Khan. You can tell because everything is covered in fine Corinthian leather. He doesn't know it was me, he was just told some gorn took it. I hear that he didn't use fine, Corinthian leather on his replacement. Something like alligator skin, I think.

The Federation could use it to lower the shields on your ship.

So then Geoff would have to go in without protection? Madness!

If they do steal the Akagi, milk them for all they're worth.

You should call it in for the reward, Shellshock.

Reward? You mean the lifetime supply of soy milk and Gorn Flakes?

Ummm. Pass.

I hope our Resident Gorn doesn't see that! He would be in a rage at having his hardbody called "plush"!

Gorn dandruff? Do you think that Gorns get atopic dermatitis?

I dunno. Throw in a royalty payment with every unit sold and a license agreement and you could call me plush...or mush...or even gorn with envy.

A Stealth Gorn - an oxymoron if there ever was one!
