Whilst I understand the need for privacy and personal protection in these days of online pilfering and id fraud the need to set up so many passwords for everything proves a tad frustrating for a bear of little brain like me. I'm fine with the sites I regularly use and have them dutifully recorded for later retrieval and use. However, its the sites I only use once in a blue moon which drive me to distraction. This week I have started a new Future Learn course but inevitably the password I thought was the right one eluded me....this must have happened last time and I had changed it but to what? Heaven only knows...that's long since been lost in the mists of time. When asked to come up with a new one my mind went completely blank...in the end I put in the first thing that popped into my head. The only thing I can be sure of is that if I ever do another course I shall have to go through the same rigmarole again as there's not a cat in hell's chance of me remembering it....coming across this particularly apt piece in a magazine the very next day it tickled my funny bone!
