Passwords, btw, are part of the reason I didn’t repeat the PHP certificate test I botched. By the time I had all the permits to sign up for it, I tried to get a new password to log in but the system didn’t accept my email address. I couldn’t just use my name either because the system (not a German one) apparently couldn’t handle the Umlaut in my last name - it couldn’t read the ä but neither a nor ae worked in its stead because that made it a different word. At least I think that’s how it happened. Anyway, I decided to get back to it later and then I forgot and the permits were withdrawn and I’m still without a certificate.
This kind of thing happens a lot. Once, I had to cancel an email address because I had set it up under my nickname but the service had changed their policy and when trying to retrieve the password, I had to provide a passport which I didn’t have, of course.Made me write this comic.
By the way, does anybody else have that thing where you actually do remember your password but totally forgot your username? I do that a lot.
