    I have gotten to the point where I have so many different user ID's and passcodes that there is NO WAY that I can possibly remember them all! It's a huge annoyance to be locked out of an account when you mistakenly enter what you think is the correct code. I'm just sick of numbers and what not being attached to everything I do and cluttering up what little brain space I have left [​IMG]

    Definitely. Also sick of every store having their own savings "reward" cards you have to sign up for....or you don't get the discounts. [​IMG]

    I have all my usernames and passwords written down in a sealed envelope along with instructions in a hidden place that only my husband knows.

    I also have them written down where i can access them when I forget a password.

    Also, automated attendants!!!! Can I not speak to a human who can understand me when I talk and who will know where to forward my call if they can't help instead of wasteing an hour beating my head against the wall fruitlessly????? [​IMG]

    I memorized a list of random characters, and have a certain part of the string that I change for each site I belong to. Only I know which part changes and how. Every site I visit has a different password, and they all appear to be random. The best thing is, I don't ever have to write down a password because I know the "key" to my own code. [​IMG]
