My World of Warcraft account got hacked last night, and so I’ve sent emails to tech support begging them to restore all my much-loved characters, who are currently lost in the limbo of backup servers.
The College auxilliary corporation has my name recorded in their files as Rogers, even though I have not yet legally un-hyphenated it or asked for a name change from them.
I just tried to check out two books in my own library, and my ID card wouldn’t bring up my account. When Tammy tried to find me manually, we discovered that I don’t seem to exist in our database, anymore.
I would say there’s a message in this, but I’m not sure what it is. Identity is transient? Electronic information is impermanent? Don’t trust The Man? Stop playing video games? Stop checking out library books?
I dunno. You tell me. It’s just been one of those days.
