And on the last day of 2017, (bloody hell I survived), I pedaled my Schwinn 170 another 22.0 miles. My totals now stand, after 1,485 days of pedaling, at 31,634.9 miles; 50,911.5 kilometers. I have now 6,566.7 miles remaining to complete my overall goal of the equivalent circumference of the Earth and of Mars.
I have now completed 53.5% of the distance to my next destination and goal point.

Hackers blaming hackers for my transfer delay of US$17,500,000.00.
Just received a Happy New Year cheery email that leaves me in a lurch. It appears that hackers caused an issue in delaying the transferring of my US$ 17,500,000 to my Woodforest National Bank account.
So, hackers foiled the hackers who in turn caused a "legitimate" loss of my $17 1/2 million.
And... who won?
Here’s the copy of the email I received this morning.
I apologize for the delay in transferring your US$17.500,000.00 it was due to the fact that our database was attacked by hackers, who tried hacking into our system, which resulted in the shutting down of our entire system. Our team of professional have worked tirelessly to restore our system, but the problem we have now is that most of our data were lost in the process.
So can you please furnish us with your details again, so as to facilitate the transfer of your fund immediately to your designated bank account. The details are as follows:
Name and address of bank:Account name:Account no.:Swift code:
As soon as we receive these details, we will proceed with the fund transfer process. Once again i apologize for the delay, i promise we will strive to make it up to you.
Yours sincerely,Robert E. Marling Jr.Chairman, Chief Executive Officer,Chief Executive Officer of Woodforest National BankAnd Director of Woodforest National BankWebsite: http:// www. chipsystems. in// dvd_sys/cctv/page/file.html

“Even with the Zoo Theory in place, as well as the continued lack of evidence to support the belief that other planets can support alien life, whether intelligent or non-intelligent, some researchers are still confident in the possibility of confirming extraterrestrial life in the foreseeable future.”
