Stolen email addresses?

[Update: To be honest, I don't really know what this is. I'm out of my depth. But in any case, no harm in changing your password, particularly to a fresh and long one.]

Online there is a long list of stolen email addresses. They could have been hacked. If you find yours (like I did), you better change your password.
(Download the list. Open it in a pure text editor. It may take a long time to open it, it did even on my computer with a solid-state disk.)

A little memory of space

When I was eleven and my sister was eight, we were once out walking, and she asked me:
"What would happen if if gravity would suddenly fail?"
I said: "Everything and everybody would be slung into space."
After a second's thought, she said:
"We'd better bring an extra-large lunch."
