in reply to Weird anomaly in brian_d_foy experience points

If you are curious, you should probably just ask brian. If brian cares to ask for an investigation, then one of the gods might find time to look into it. Not that I'm convinced such would turn up much given the very wide time span involved.

    Hmm

    the OP wrote:

    >that today he is reported as having only 19315

    My last check was Experience: 18955

    It's thinkable that someone hacked his account...

    I'm sending him a /msg to clarify that it's not his own concept of mortification. :)

    Cheers Rolf

    Update: Hmm well maybe the hacker replies... xD

      His home node states that he rarely reads his PM messages and asks you to email him instead.

        well the gods should have his mail-address, I don't.

        Cheers Rolf

        UPDATE: I googled a @cpan.org account and mailed a short notice ... wait and see.

        UPDATE: @gmail done. Mo 13. Dez 13:04:26 CET 2010

      For the record, his experience points are down to 18899 now -- as at Mon 13 December 2010 12:24 PM, Chicago time (I'm using Chicago time because that's where brian d foy lives, assuming he hasn't been kidnapped).

      The suspense is killing me.

      Update: Seems to have stabilised at 18920, as at Wed 15 December 2010 2:25 PM, Chicago time (with the account unused for 2 days).

        Itís them pesky Druids at Stonehenge that have put the minus Hex-p on him!

    Clearly the gods need to disable brian d foy's account, at the very least, because someone is logging in as him and gnawing away at his XP. They should be able to figure out where this person is logging in from and take countermeasures, too. Such a person is a criminal, at least in the virtual state which is PerlMonks.

    What is the sound of Windows? Is it not the sound of a wall upon which people have smashed their heads... all the way through?

      The password of brian_d_foy's account has been changed. The e-mail appears to be correct so brian can reclaim the account by requesting a password reminder. I believe we currently have one web server that is failing to send e-mails so you have a 50% chance of the e-mail reminder working. We hope to have that fixed soon.
