The City of Troy, New York, "Where Henry Hudson Turned Around."

The Troy Polloi has suffered a security breach. Repeat, security breach.

This is actually pretty funny. Democratus doesn't like talking about himself (except in the third person) but this is good.

Democratus received two e-mails yesterday. Both were from services utilized by the Troy Polloi. Both involved requests for passwords. It seems that the person who used to comment here, known as Tax Payer, attempted to access two Troy Polloi accounts by requesting a lost password. If you forget your password, you can have the service e-mail your lost password. Bad form, really.

Unfortunately for Einstein, the "lost" password is sent to the e-mail address in the account. That would be......our e-mail address. We did get the IP address however,, so if any computer whizzes want to track it down, release the hounds!

Troy Tax Payer, to paraphrase a line from the great Biloxi Blues, you'd need three promotions to get to be an idiot.
