Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life. -(apologies to Daniel Greenfield (Sultan Knish).

  technical draw: Advice for all: Save your passwords! I'm trying to restore my Safari browser and I don't have the password. I need one password to find another password. Where's Steve Job?
Premium Chessgames Member
  crawfb5: <Where's Steve Job?> He forgot his password.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <crawfb5> I know Steve Job's password: "Mucho Dinero".
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Anyway Steve Jobs is gone. So is Johnny Cash. So I have no Jobs, no Cash and no passwords. Great way to end the year.

  technical draw: Just as mysteriously as my Facebook page disappeared it came back. Or I should say it limped back because I can't comment on it. My computer done gone crazy!

  saffuna: I think you surpassed the 4 GB humor limit.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <saffuna> Darn, I didn't know there was a humor limit. Maybe if I discuss Quantum Mechanics I can even it out,

  Boomie: <TD: Passwords>

You probably already have a list of passwords. In Windows 10, there is a program with the unlikely moniker "Control Userpasswords2". Run that through the Start menu/Run command.

I don't know about other OS but I'm guessing they all have similar utilities. They need to save user names and passwords in case you want to auto-fill those fields. I would do an OS help search for "passwords" or some likely term to find the utility.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Thanks <Boomie> My Mac stores passwords only if I command it to "save passwords" which I stupidly did not. Now I'm trying to guess and I've hit some so all hope is not loss.
Premium Chessgames Member

Advice for all: Save your passwords!>

No way Jose.
If I forget where I saved them, Id lose them all.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <TD: My Mac stores passwords only if I command it to "save passwords">

This article may be of some help.

Notice the password manager program Keychain. You should run that to see what is in the password database.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Thanks <Boomie>. Did that, that's how I started on the road to recovery.
Nov-07-16  Deus Ex Alekhina: Contact Hillary for technical support, I'm sure she knows how to retrieve stuff.

  technical draw: Hello, my name is TD and I'm a password loser.

Hello, TD, welcome to Password Losers Anonymous or PLA. We would give you our site address but you'll just lose the password.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <Deus> No way. I'm staying clear of anything to do with Hillary.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Yippeee! Got my computer back! Complete overhaul, It's great to have a son who's an electrical engineer. Of course I have to build everything up from scratch but that's a small price to pay for getting rid of the malicious adware MacKeeper.

Also I had to switch browsers to Chrome and it's layout is a little strange but I'll get used to it soon. My Safari is kaput.

Even the audio has improved. After 10 years my mac was full of all kinds of garbage, I got an earful from my son: Don't download any applications, don't click on anything suspicious, beware wolves in sheep's clothing. ok ok ok gotcha!

As long as I can surf the internet and see videos on youtube I'm good. Now about the chess championship, I see Carlsen keeping the title.....TD

Nov-18-16  Deus Ex Alekhina: It appears that your son inherited his brains from his mother

  technical draw: <Deus.> < It appears that your son inherited his brains from his mother>

Actually that's true!

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: < It appears that your son inherited his brains from his mother>

It's true. My sister, my brother in-law, and my niece all have Master's degrees. But my son ONLY has a BSEE. But he makes more money than all three Masters combined!

He should throw more money my way though.

  WannaBe: Hellllllllllllllllo my future ex-wife!! (But I think she's a winter...)

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Don't think I can afford 3 (more) alimonies...

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <WannaBe> . Did you know that Julia Fischer is both a concert violinist and a concert pianist? Just like me except I'm not a concert pianist or violinist.

  technical draw: Today is the anniversary of the death of my father in 1978. Strangely he died before my grandfather. And stranger still my grandfather died Christmas day, 25th December 1980.

I better be careful as death lurks everywhere this month. People are dying today that had never died before.

After this death month I can look forward to my birthday in February. Don't let the baby avatar fool you, I'll be 68 years old.

They say your memory is the first thing to go but I can attest that it's not. It's that other thing.

Mine is the Sept. period.

Looks like I made it!!!
