Richard the spam king

If I have ever sent you an email, you probably got some spam in your inbox this weekend from me. Somehow my gmail account got compromised and somebody from China sent out email hawking fake electronics. I believe I've rectified the issue; please let me know if you get any more suspicious emails from me.

As for how it happened, I don't' have a good answer. My local machine is clean, so it's not a virus. I haven't been super vigilant about keeping strong separate passwords online so maybe somebody at another site sold my password and it was close enough to guess my gmail password. However, last weekend we sent Tara's Dell back to Dell to get it repaired. It seems like a awfully strange coincidence. I'm not saying, I'm just saying.....

Thank you all who let me know something was amiss.
