    Well, guess what just came in the e-mail.

    I applied for the show a while back but dad never got around to taking me to the audition, it's no grand theft credit card like PSN, but damn, my name, email address, zip code, phone number, date of birth and gender just got acessed, along with everyone else's who registered for the show. Namely E-mail. Which means spam is probly gonna start pourin in any time now.

    Edit: yep, just got two spams right now advertising cheap iphones and viagra.

    Hackers Gonna Hack, but I'm just hopin they don't/can't use any of that info.

    I was going to sing the nyan cat song.

    Seriously, though, I was thinking of doing something by the Beatles, or maybe Billy Joel.

    I've got a REALLY good voice, so I might have actually stood a chance.

    And no SS numbers were stolen, though a lot else was.

    Now you are bound by GBAtemp Law to do it and submit a video.
    It's the law, and you're not a terrorist..... right?

    Ah, what the hell. I'll give er a go sometime tomorrow, it's late now and I needs sleeps.

    I'll need to study the melody a little bit, but I'm pretty sure I know the lyrics [​IMG]

    (I gotta stop talkin bout this so much or this thing is gonna get EOFed)

    On topic, though, a ton of information is getting stolen via hacking recently, and this IS yet another case.

    night, guys.

    That's usually why when I register for most anything on the internet I use an e-mail account dedicated specifically to junk e-mail stuff. I have another e-mail for official e-mail stuff (but I don't e-mail anyone so its only real use is keeping my contacts and stuff tied to it for my phone).

    Hell.
    On the bright side, if they suck we can send them shittons of spam mail and pizzas.
