Gmx.com blocked my account

So I went to log into my Gmx.com account only to find it blocked. I sent them an e-mail and they replied with this:

How ridiculous!  The fact that they believe Facebook or MySpace is a legitimate way to verify someone’s identity! I do not feel comfortable sending a copy of my student or driver’s license to them.

Egypt in Turmoil

Let’s hope that Egypt can finally become a free, democratic, country that is released from the chains that Hosni Mubarak has imprisoned them with for the last 30 years.

You Are Not Alone – Hoodie Allen

Ah the smell of a new blog – it has that “new blog” smell.

I would like to dedicate my first entry to a new song that I recently came across, titled “You Are Not Alone” by Hoodie Allen.
