in reply to Weird anomaly in brian_d_foy experience points

brian here:

I haven't really bothered to log in to Perlmonks since the password database was published. I think I changed my password, but either I can't remember it or it isn't what I think it should be. I don't get the email for the password reminder. The one in my keychain doesn't seem to work anymore.

As for any worries about my well being, it is the weekend you know. Some of us don't actually use the interwebs all day every day, and someone finally managed to figure out someone like me has a well known and easy to find email address (although googling seemed a bit extreme).

I'm not speculating on what happened, why it happened, and so on, but I didn't do anything on purpose to reduce my XP. I'm not terribly concerned about it either unless there's some new way to turn in-game money into real money. :)

    just wanna approve, this is no hoax, it's Brian speaking.

    I got an email from his official mailaddress with identical message.

    And - FWIW - I'm real. Me and one of the gods have an "Erdős 1" distance in RL! :)

    Cheers Rolf

    PS: Could one of the gods please - after fixing Brians account - reestablish the 98735 XPoints I lost in the last week? ;-)

    Well, someone's using your account because each time I'm looking the "last time here" flag is to some low value : 19 minutes ago, 2 hours ago. So obviously one of the gods should do something about it.
      Maybe a complicated publicity plot from Brian, to get onion wide attention and prime time in perl medias?

      And in some weeks he will announce his new "Post Modern Quantum Perl#" book and start the merchandising...

      ...

      Cheers Rolf ;-)

      PS: desperately waiting for the John Grisham depiction of these events...

      1) Who knows when the videos showing him and Paris Hilton will mysteriously leak to youtube...

        And in some weeks he will announce his new "Post Modern Quantum Perl#" book and start the merchandising...
        Or perhaps s/Waldo/brian d foy/.
