Are you from Boston or just visiting?

I am from Massachusetts but have live in the Seattle area since 2000.

Internet accounts that periodically refuse to acknowledge the account's password.

I'm thinking its a forced time to "update your password" feature, without asking you to do the update.
This backhanded approach takes your opinion out of whether or not I want to-- out of the process, you just HAVE TO DO IT!

You have to be odd to be #1.

For what it's worth, I work in IT, and at one point worked directly with user's accounts/passwords, and 99.9% times it's user error. And yep I know exactly what you mean, I've been on the "user" end screaming at it, but after seeing the way accounts work/prompt and remember passwords, it's almost certainly user error.

The .01% of times it actually is the account, you'd find hundreds/thousands of other people having the exact same issue, as it's a system error. Any time an individual person flips a lid over their password, it's user error every time lol.

ANYWAY:

Not me, but a friend has just messaged to say: "Stuck on a train, some person has jumped off a bridge and killed themselves.....it's holding up my journey". Stuff like this proper pisses me off. Yes, you're going to be late, but some poor sod has just killed themselves, give them time to sort that out and worry about it later.

I love having long hair and as I mentioned in another thread, I'm letting it grow down to my waist, maybe even tailbone. But after you take a shower and your hair is wet down your back, getting it dry is a bitch Tongue And my hair dryer is ready to Hobo

Thanks oaktree500 for taking the time to explain that, I'll take it to heart, but also I use an encrypted password service so no doubt that could still be creating issues also. I'm really not one of those that claims to never be wrong or do something wrong.

Ha, no worries, it's not a big deal and I don't mean to cause any offense either. Just the ammount of people I've spoken to on the phone who are saying "ok trying again....GOD DAMNIT ITS NOT WRONG" and I have literally a little counter saying "bad password" going up each time haha. Just something I like to mention to people as I used to be one of those guys, so now if I get something wrong, I try an see if I'm doing anything wrong before I call tech support lol.
