Is this a funny cartoon? Of course. Have any of us ever done this? Absolutely. Is there anything more frustrating than formulating or retrieving a password? I swear.....even with the password help apps and systems, it's still a pain in the ass. I discovered that I could take another class at CNM (sooo much cheaper than UNM), so decided to check out the fall schedule. Only to discover that I forgot my password to the CNM login for students. I didn't use Blackboard (online class) for the statistics class, and our instructor didn't use it for quizzes or tests, and after 4 months of relative inactivity, I forgot my old password. It wasn't hard to reset it. It's just the process of having to memorize all of the ones that I have ~ for e-mail, UNM, CNM, banking, bill paying, etc, Of course I have them written down ('cept for the CNM one of course). I use to keep them on my laptop, until I had this brilliant thought ~ what if someone hacks into my laptop, and I've conveniently listed all my passwords on it? Uh, that's not a good idea (and I know people who do just that). So, I have my handy notebook full of all my passwords (again, not the CNM one for some reason). The only real problem is I don't carry the notebook around with me (kind of a pain to do that), so if I'm at work and take a few minutes to sneak into a website or check e-mail & have a brain fart, I'm out of luck.
Now that I've written this, it reminds me that I need to change a few....
