Password Reset

Resetting my password should be easy. I have at least five or six really good ones in my head that revolve around Harry Potter and Voldemort.

*sigh*

Notice: I said should be easy. Not IS easy. Should be easy.

So, yeah. Today my computer whined at me to change my password or die. I didn’t want to die. Maybe some other day, but not today. I type in HpHeartsVoldie. Hit enter.

Password is unacceptable. Try again.

I don’t see what’s so unacceptable about it. But whatever. I type in VoldyHeartsHarry.

Hit enter.

Password has been used recently. Try again.

Okay. That’s a legit complaint.

I sit back in my seat and stare thoughtfully at my computer. How can I get around its overly particular internal censor?

Please enter your new password.

Okay.

I don’t care much for shipping this pair, but it will do.

Acceptable password.

I nearly fall out of my chair with shock.

Please reenter password.

All right! Here we go!

Dobby—-

The power goes out for fifteen minutes.

It comes back on.

My computer comes back on.

It’s waiting for me to reenter my password.

Password has been previously used. Try again.

I give up and shut the beast down.

I’ll just go read a good book.

Oh! Here’s a good one. I haven’t read this one in a while.

I sit down with it. All happily nestled down.

The power goes out again.

It’s apparently going to be one of those days.
