I’ve spent the last couple of days fiddling with my new iPhone 6s. Jeebus, I’m frustrated.
It’s not the phone, which is pretty good. It’s fast, has some snappy new features and is generally better than my old 6. My frustration lies with having to remember all the passwords that didn’t make the transition from the last phone. In the year I’ve had my 6, various situations and events have resulted in passwords being changed and altered. And because I always press “yes” when I’m asked “Do you want to remember this password?”, I’m rendered clueless when faced a situation like I faced this week.
Oh, I could make some guesses, but some sites/features only allow you so many wrong answers before they lock you out. One of those is the app I use to access this site on my phone. After three screw-ups, I have one chance remaining. I’m too scared to try it.
Yes, it’s my own damn fault. I should be more like my wife who has a little book where she writes down all her usernames and passwords. She has cast her stones. You may now cast yours.
