I emptied my computer bag of everything it carries and took a picture. I also weighed it all. 19 pounds. Approximately $5000 to replace the bags contents with new. That's $263 a pound. http://www.flickr.com/photos/zanshin/8644285482/in/photostream

Woke up to discover Google had temporarily suspended my account due to "suspicious" activity. Looks like someone tried (did?) access it from Thailand and/or Russia. I was able to have Google send me a SMS message with a code (had to do this twice as I used my Google Voice number the first time, d'oh) and re-activated my account. Was forced to change my password. The original password was 12 characters with mixed capitalization, numbers, and misspelled foreign words.

Now looking at all my other passwords that I consider to be weaker than the potentially compromised one. Time to fully plunge into 1Password and generate strong passwords for everything.

Mark, I would assume that one of the ways a cookie could be use and appear to be from Thailand or Russia would be through using Tor when in reality the user was actually in the United States. So perhaps the cookie was sniffed on a local network you use.
