Passwords, PIN's, codes and user names are the curse of entry into the digital universe. With the sunny uplands in view, an electronic policeman blocks your path. Did I use my mother's maiden name or favourite dish? Which date of birth, my son, wife or daughter? A former girlfriend perhaps now forgotten?
Failing to recall a mixture of letters and numbers of at least 8 characters I click on "forgotten your password"? It's the last straw, a return email contains mind numbing hieroglyphics, softened with the suggestion that you
can reset it to something more amenable.
I type in "BOLLOCKS"

    Hear, hear! And you must NEVER write them down! It's a dastardly plot by the youth of today to freeze out old codgers with failing memory. But I've just forgotten what I was going to say next....

    And who are you - do I know you?

    Obviously not, because you're not following me...
