Glad you made it, Lauren.
There's nothing so frustrating as an unco-operative computer, is there?

Pleased you've made it back in again, Lauren. I had a few problems like that while back... finally realised I was putting in the wrong username. :oops: :lol:

Its not only Pc's that misbehave....last evening I switch onto to my fave TV channel only to find it had gone walkabout......tried every trick I knew to solve the problem but finally had to call SIL for help......he said try retuning ABC ....and it worked.....I guess it was due to the very high winds we had yesterday The thought of having to watch the the Commercial Channels would send me right over the top!

Just replying to my previous post and your replies to me and I agree nothing so frustrating is there
passwords I still get them in a muddle so now just save them in a notebook and the ones given to me
I try not to change them now and all seems ok well for now that is.. thanks everyone for replies..

I have done the same things as everyone else and thought to myself that there must be a better way. So I got out the old Google Search and found a free program called Kee Pass which will generate passwords for you to the level of security that you want. You can save it to a folder on your computer and secure it behind it's own password, which is the only one that you will need to remember. AND WAIT THERE IS MORE ***** you can save all your passwords to a USB key and attach it to your key ring ******** so your passwords are with you where ever you are. This is what I do. I have two computers, a laptop for when I am travelling and a desktop in my little home office and as long as I have my car/house keys with me, I have all my passwords with me.
The price is right, I have been using Kee Pass for about 18 months without a problem. It can hold heaps of passwords, only limited by the amount of free space on your PC. IMHO well worth trying.

Merry Xmas to all
Merv.
