OK lets face it I am in a "very good mood" too after being invited to the Korean dinner with the traditional rice wine makgeolli being served. This was actually really nice change after all the recent dumpster diving etc. it reminds me my days in SF quite a bit (but here are more mosquitoes :-)). 

Concerning the ingredient, Rubin, I do not have a clue. However one ingredient which I fall in love at Noisebridge and which I had just once before than at Alaska (and I love it raw) was ... and the answer is send to you and Andy directly. But this really may be and may not be the answer.

I'll go through your email and security features again tomorrow and we will see what I can do, thanks a lot for all the suggestions! However again I can claim that my formally used algoldor at yahoo.com account is still functional and non hacked so far, frantisekapfelbeck at gmail.com  is an account which I have never used to my knowledge,  and  algoldor at gmail.com  seems together with google + account in order, I do not use it very often but I seem to be in control as usually.

Talk to you soon, thanks to everyone,

Frantisek, I think at this point I would say something to the extent
of, "you should totally get GPG setup and sign all of your emails then
establish some line of trust through another form of communication
(like a video/voice call) in order to integrate yourself within the
web of trust" but considering that you're using Yahoo! and most likely
logging in through multiple untrusted computers, I'm highly doubtful
you'll be able to sustain maintaining a secure private key.

So, since it seems obvious that whoever is sending email from the
yahoo account is whoever has control over the yahoo account, and
whoever is sending email from the gmail account has control over the
gmail account, you could try to verify something only you and I would
know. There is this whole thing where someone could man in the middle
you, blah blah blah, etc, but let's face it, no one gives a shit and
I'm drunk enough to rather enjoy this right now.

About a year or two ago I was cooking at Noisebridge, you asked me
about a particular ingredient I was using, it was rather... new to
you. You ate two spoon fulls of it, rather raw, and I made a comment
about how that's not normally an ok thing to do, and mildly yack inducing.

What was that ingredient?

I've emailed the right answer to Andy for safe keeping.
