Rain Coming Monday morning?: All the major weather services agree for the Gib to Almeria area there is a good chance of rain showers from Monday 2am till possibly as late as 7pm. Accuweather says there’s a 50% chance of thunderstorms 8pm-2pm, none of the others I checked mentioned thunderstorms. Be alert to possible flash flooding. If you suspect lightning, and don’t use protective UPS power supplies for your electronics, unplug your computers and router. Circuit breakers and typical surge protecting power strips, while good at protecting your appliances, are insufficient to protect the more delicate computer gear from a lightning generated power surge. -Ed.

Wanted: Calligraphy. Is there anyone in the Vinuela/Puente don Manuel area who specialises in Calligraphy? (Or willing to meet someone between Nerja and Torre del Mar.) I have a very important document of great sentimental value, belonging to the Atterbury family that has sadly faded through time, especially anything written in red. It would be wonderful if it could be brought back to life again. I expect to pay a fee of course.

You Gave Your Phone Number to Twitter for “2 Factor Authentication” Security and Twitter Used it for Targeted Ads: Last year it was Facebook who was caught using phone numbers, provided by its users for 2FA protection, in it’s advertising business. The FTC issued a $5 billion fine against Facebook in July this year. Now this.
After exposing private tweets, plaintext passwords, and personal information for hundreds of thousands of its users in several data losses over the past few years, here is a new security blunder social networking company Twitter admitted today.
Twitter announced that the phone numbers and email addresses of some users provided for two-factor authentication (2FA) protection had been used for targeted advertising purposes— though the company said it was ‘unintentional.’ “We cannot say with certainty how many people were impacted by this, but in an effort to be transparent, we wanted to make everyone aware,” Twitter wrote.

Home wanted: Due to unforeseen circumstances I am looking for a new home for my fourteen year old cat. She is in good health, very loving and affectionate, spends most of her time indoors sleeping with the occasional wander out side. She would not be happy in a busy household but would make a perfect loving companion for an older lady living on her own. Live in Almachar could meet at El Ingenio.
