It's being like that this morning. I'm going to be down in the Loop later this week, so I downloaded the Ventra app onto my phone so I can use online Metra ticketing. Then I discovered that I'd forgotten the Ventra password that I never use, so I had to reset that. And eventually, I was able to buy some train tickets.

This was followed by fishing a couple of items out of the spam bucket. One was from my bank. It turns out my bank has sold itself to another bank, which is going to mean a whole new round of account numbers and checks, I suspect, in the not too distant future.

And then I fished the notification for Katie's upcoming dentist appointment to have a cavity filled out of the spam bucket and forwarded it to Gretchen. To keep these out of the spam bucket in the future, I went to my web hosting provider and tried to log in, but I apparently forgot which password I was using for that. But I could reset it if I had my user number, which is on an invoice. Which I get via e-mail. Have I kept any of them? Why, yes. Yes, I have. Reset that password, go into the mail management and white list the new dentist's e-mail address for both me and Gretchen so that we actually get these notices.

And as long as I'm there, it is time (past time) to delete Fuzzbucket's e-mail address. I checked the inbox before deleting it. There was a lot of spam there, mostly from Facebook.


Poor old cat.
