Hacky New Year! (No Drivel)

Dear Drivelers,

If you also follow my professional life at Tenacious Change, I wanted to let you know that




Yes, it is embarrassing and a bit irritating.

Happy New Year?!? Not really.

First, it was the Tenacious Change internet-based business phone number (via Skype). Long story. That led to the loss of our business Twitter account. Longer story.

Here’s what you need to know to update our information in your contact list and to make sure you can stay in touch with me at Tenacious Change. 


  • Hacked phone number, now disconnected, was: 1-240-319-8525 – please discard this one.
  • The new business line is now: 1-240-583-1754 – please save for calls and texting. (You can also still reach me on my mobile phone at 571-241-7583.)


  • The hacked Twitter account: @TenaciousChg – this one might come back but will likely be closed; if it does come back, we’ll migrate folks to the new one.
  • New Twitter account: @TenaciousChng – notice there is only one letter difference (“n” in “Chng”) in the account name.
  • By the way, my personal Twitter feed is: @TomKlaus. You are welcome to follow my driveling there as well.

Nothing else was hacked. Our websites are still the same and operational:

We have spent these early days of 2022 updating websites, social media accounts, membership profiles, etc., etc. Still, in case we missed something, I wanted to make sure you had this information. Thank you for updating your contact list entry for Tenacious Change, and for me, Tom Klaus, with this new information.

Also, just to make sure all was good, we went through our MailChimp account to check that our lists (subscribers, contacts, and unsubscribed) were all accurate.

It could have been worse, right? If you don’t mind, show us some love at this moment and follow us on Twitter at our new place and remember, that’s @TenaciousChng (with an “n”). 

If you’ve got a bit extra love to share, consider following this blog as well. 🙂

Okay, it’s gonna get better this year………………………………………….right?

Of course!

Tom Klaus is the Driveler. On March 16, 2020, the first day of the Novel Coronavirus shelter-in-place order for his state, he started writing a daily blog to keep himself from stressing too much about the pandemic situation. He thought the daily blogging would last for only a couple of week but it stretched on to 77 consecutive days. Then he continued writing daily for a while after that as well. At some point the blog became The Daily Drivel...mostly because he was mostly writing the stream of consciousness drivel that was pouring out of his head, running down his face, and, sometimes, out of his mouth. In November 2020 he launched The Daily Drivel as a free-standing website/blog.
