My Next Project

It involves reading. Was scrolling down my wall on facebook, when I came across a link. I think it may have been posted by Mental Floss, not too sure. It linked to Pop Chart Labs website. They had a poster you could buy which showed "100 Essential Novels". Pick one of the novels, read it (or if you have already read it), and scratch off the corresponding picture to see another one underneath. Cool! I love reading. This looks like fun. I have read several of these already. However! I plan to read them again. Starting from the top left and working across and down. As I finish each one, I'll scratch off the cover to reveal the picture underneath. It's like getting rewarded for reading a book. Kind of like the gold stars my elementary teachers used to give when one read a book. When you're all done, you have a nice posted to frame.

First book I'm going to read is, "Don Quixote", by Miguel De Cervantes (1605)

Looking closely at the poster, I see that the order they're following is by years. Don Quixote is first because it was written in 1605. Next will be Robinson Crusoe, written in 1719, and so on.

I will keep you updated as I go along.

A Phishy Text From 32665

So I'm sitting here minding my own business, when a text comes in on my nearby cell phone. I don't recognize the number 32665, but assume it's AT&T sending me a text. I read the message and it says, "884924 is your Facebook password reset code". I then panic. "Someone is trying to log into my Facebook account!" Then another text comes in. Same message, but now providing a supposed link to Facebook. This is weird... The main reason being that I didn't tie my Facebook to this cell number. So, if I have any issues with log ins, they send it to my email. I got look at the email, that is linked to my Facebook account, and there is nothing there. By this time, a third text has come in. Same message. I just blocked it. Googling the number got me a ton of hits. It's someone phishing for account logins. Not just for Facebook, but other sites as well. Instagram, Twitter, etc. Just FYI.
