[size=3]Sometimes things happen that one is not aware of at the time they are happening which causes one to do things they shouldn’t be doing.
I got very angry at someone due to a scenario such as the one above and went off the deep end without first investigating the real problem.
In this thread I got super mad at poor old Joe Tedesco for something that I only thought had happened. Let me have a moment to explain.
Joe posted a link to my Photo Bucket account which I clicked on. The first thing I saw was a new picture had been uploaded and it was of questionable taste.
At this point I thought that Joe had somehow broken into my account and posted the link with the account open to the public.
Naturally when I open the site it is open to me due to the fact that I have it set up that way just as most open this site. I don’t have to enter my password every time I enter.
What caused me to go off the deep end was that new picture that had been uploaded to my account without my knowledge.
As most here know I teach electrical classes at the local community college. I use that site for the classes as well as personal use.
When I have a student that is doing research on code sections that don’t have access to the older code cycles I will give that student access to my photo bucket so they can download the sections in question such as this one from the 1968 code cycle;
It was this student that had uploaded the picture to my site about 30 minutes after Joe had posted the link to my account.
This is what made me think that Joe had somehow hacked into my account and therefore the spasm of anger that came over me.
I am a firm believer that when someone does well they should be praised. As well, when someone does badly they should admit to their shortcomings.
I am posting this because I hope that Joe and the other members of this forum can accept my apology for this outburst and forgive me my shortcomings.
This is directed especially to Joe as I was blaming him for something he didn’t do. I have learned something from this and the lesson will not be forgot
Joe I am truly sorry for my accusations and hope that you can find it in your heart to forgive me.
Members, to you I also apologize for my outburst and hope I haven’t offended anyone and if I have please find it in your heart to forgive me.
I do believe that all can see the concern I had when I thought the site had be breached and access was given to the entire internet.
A new account will be set up just for the students and with the new site it wont matter if the entire world has access or not.
I now stand ready for any red flag anyone thinks I deserve.
