I attempted to sell my piano and ended up getting a couple of scam “I’ll buy your piano” emails a day.”


So many scams. So little time to participate myself. (I did used to think about setting up a site selling Really Bad Oboe Reeds. I figured some might think I meant “bad as in good” .. you know … like “wicked as in very cool”? No one could really call that a scam though, right? If you received a bad reed you’d be getting exactly what you ordered.)

But anyway, be warned. Again.

Oh … and I do apologize to any of you who have attempted to join this happy little site, or send me messages, and haven’t been able to do so. Yes, there are problems. Some of you try to sign up as a member and are refused, or so you are told. I’ve found that most of you who have contacted me are still listed as members after that message, and I haven’t a clue what’s up. Then some of you later try to sign in with your password and can’t get in. AARGH! I’m sorry. I can’t fix these things. I’m a TCI (Total Computer Idiot) and I honestly don’t know what to tell you. Dan, the Computer Man (and my husband) says it’s sometimes something to do with a firewall you have set up. Heck, I don’t even know what a firewall is. Really. (Do I have one? I dunno.) I just sit on the couch with my handy iBook on my lap and I type. I know the tiniest bit of HTML. I know how to turn my computer on and off. I know how to back it up (have you done your backup lately?). I know a few other things. But trust me, I can’t deal with computer problems. Sorry!

    Nope, it’s not a firewall, at least not for me. It’s that sometimes the
    site will let me post, and sometimes it won’t. I’ve posted a lot of
    comments that have disappeared into cyberspace. *sigh* Could you ask
    the Manila tech support folks?<br>
