Well, Microsoft were very thoughtful, and up pops a message telling me I need to reset my password. Mutter, mumble, grumble, says I. Then I read the rest of the message on the screen. To reset your password, visit www.whatever-the-address-was.com.
Sorry? How do I do that when I am locked out? How ridiculous. Luckily, this laptop is not the only computer in the house, so I was able to access my account and change the password, but really? There are households with only one computer in. How are they supposed to do it? Another well thought out plan by those-who-would-control-us I think.
I also think I must be turning into a Grumpy Old Woman. I blame my bad back which has been playing up again. (Makes a change from me moaning on about gout doesn't it?)
