I am late posting-
--The reason is----- the IMac did a download --- a lot changed--- this morning-
I tried to get into my messages--- from the kids-- and all my contacts were--GONE!
I thought I would go crazy--
so, I called son#2 the Air Canada Pilot -- who was getting ready to go to Hong Kong--
"Why did that download come in automatically?" ---- "You better not check the box that says "Automatic downloads!" he told me.
This Pilot son knows everything--
So after my housey work, I called AppleCare--
- The operator was in Florida.--Can you believe that?--- (talking to me at the end of the world)-
He said, "Go to System Preferences"---then type in your IMac passcode."
But I don't have a passcode on this computer," I told him.
And he reassured me that I had to have put a password on it many many years ago--
Lord love a Duck!----
WE HAD TO CHANGE THE PASSWORD__the guy in Florida and I!-
It took --like--567 hours--but--- we changed several passwords--
The email-----and even Sparkpeople----needed me to reset their passwords--oh--and our tax receipts from the accountant were all pass coded before we could open them-
You know, maybe when we are born it might be an idea to label us with a few passcodes --in private areas , of course--
Then I might remember them!
--Sometimes computers make me feel like the above!---
--But----then, I met all of you Sparkly people on this machine---with a passcode
I do love you all!
