March 2015

Where oh where did my February go? It has been a long, sad story. Someone hijacked my showgirlpublishing.net website. One day I tried to sign on and there was this huge black screen with lots of jibber jabber on it. My site was completely gone. Suffice it to say, I was upended and frantic. In going over the mess, I finally found that my domain name suddenly belonged to a company in Melbourne, Australia. Originally, about 15 years ago, I purchased showgirlpublishing from Yahoo who either sold it or had it stolen from them or what I really don’t know. They claimed no knowledge. Anyway, it was my first encounter with cyber theft.

I paid their blackmail. I knew no other way so I am now trying to learn how to get the name back to a safer provider than I had before. I’ve learned that this sort of thing is pretty common practice in the cyberworld but typically I never thought someone else would want my domain name. Enough said.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to one and all. My book Craps and the Showgirl is with editors and hopefully it will get published this fine year.

Let me hear from you, your comments, thoughts and ideas. Many thanks to you who have been kind enough to contact me for one reason or another. I would like to hear again from the person from Las Vegas who wrote me and I misunderstood what she was talking about and neglected to understand her question. Forgive me please.
