what do translating and painting have in common? Legitimate question I guess but I dont care about the answer - I do both.

Well I clicked the link you provided and was amazed to see my "about me" section, my website, my CV, even my location - but your name and your avatar. Could you explain that?

Very clever, Vito.... Aug 22, 2007

... and I'm so glad that you are a "benign" hacker! But if you can do this, what can the more malicious ones do?

Question about security for staff?

no need to panic Aug 22, 2007

Hi Vito,

I was a bit schocked at first (after all those threads on security and stealing other poeples data) but as I saw Monikas post I realized that was just a joke.

I agree completely with William.

Regards,

Lucija

I saw the same in my case.

Can you please update that pic for me Vito?

I shaved the beard off after last year's Powwow in Düsseldorf when it got covered with fuzzy matches.

Cheers
Chris

If it was intended to be a joke, Vito should have informed about it.

A glitch in ProZ Aug 22, 2007

I got to see my own profile too - at first. After clicking 'reload' Vito's profile did come up.
My guess is, this wasn't something Vito did, but a glitch in ProZ.
BTW, the picture on Vito's profile is nice (once you get there).

"Edited" too close to the URL Aug 22, 2007

Earlier this morning it did work fine, but I think Vito should insert an extra line break after the URL

20:15 CET next guess maybe there's no space between the smiley and the URL

remove "brbr[Edited Aug 22, 2007

remove the extraneous matter at the end of the URL and you can see Vito's masterwork...

Strange bug though. That extra material at the end of the URL meant that we all saw Vito's name and specialisms on our own profiles.

I think you need a space, not a line break, after some URLs..

Dear friends, Romans etc

This is no hack (but seems like "its really happening", as Rosemary would exclaim )... whatever it is, it has absolutely nothing to do with me.

I'll have the top message squashed of course. Sorry anyhow...

Have just noticed that my CV is now under Vito's name as well. Isn't this identity theft?
Am not impressed. Not very funny in my opinion.

ProZ IT Department - you need to sort this out!
