yesterday I somehow hit a 'log out' button in the wilds of Google, and then hit a 'reset" button, and was suddenly faced with the computer equivalent of a SWAT Team. They needed a password. I gave them the old password.
Nope. We need the last password you used. Nope. Try again. Now I'm beginning to sweat. Google, games, Yahoo Mail, Blogger and Word Press are somehow inexplicably linked to each other by this password.
It's like dropping the key to your house in a snowbank and hearing the door slam, the windows automatically lock, the car won't start, and the dog is trapped in the car. And you're wearing fuzzy blue slippers and a green robe.
They finally asked me to make a new password, and after three tries they accepted it. Seeing as how it's the one they just refused, I was quite pleased. Later that day I got a panic stricken email from Yahoo saying that my password had been changed. you could see the muzzles of rifles sliding out from the patrol car.
And just now Google emailed me to suggest that my Password may have been compromised, it was changed yesterday...
