East of Constantinople, West of Shanghai



Something happened this morning to my PC. I started it as usual and it went into a massive read/write thing, continuous access to the hard disk, 100% CPU usage, the works – and when it was over, it had lost all of my passwords.
All of them.
Each and every one.
My facebook access code and my Patreon code and my WordPress key and my PayPal authentication.
Everything had been obliterated.
I cursed, as one does, and then started looking for a way to recover the missing access keys.

It’s been a long day of SMS messages with code numbers and other demented “security procedures” that have wasted a lot of my time, and two thirds of my systems still don’t work.

Isn’t life beautiful?
