passwords...

One thing I wake up every morning (or for that matter..any time of the day!!) and don’t want to hear at any cost is..”my files/folders have gone corrupt/missing/inaccessible”..this happened a couple weeks ago..since my dear dear sweet :P sister also works on the comp..i usually password-protect my folders that contain my everything ..one fine evening..i logged on cos’ I had to mail these codes to a friend ..and I double-click the file and the enter pasword dialog opens up..and I enter my passwd.. ******* …but woah!! This stupid message comes up next..”wrong password”!!!!!!!!!!!!! ..now wtf is this??..i tried ..i tried my butt off to open the godamn folder but to no avail!!!.. I had to shut down my PC to stop myself from getting all frust.. i hadnt made a backup..neither online nor off..then i happened to log in the same night for something else..and wanted to give one more vain try to the folder.. as usual.. I punched the passwd.. this time with a little more precision..and LO!!!..the stupid stupid thing opens with no trouble at all.. I was baffled /stupified / flabbergasted (whatever) ..lol…I tried to understand / figure out/ do something to find out why things had happened the way they had.. I mean there had to be an explanation.. I mean …this time ok..i got back my codes and stuff back ..what if next time I password-protected some other really sensitive doc.. and things really acted-up!!

It happened again ..yesterday.. I was punching away my passwd as lazily as ever..and access was denied!! DAMN!! I also happened to sign into Gtalk at the same time.. and at that time the ever friendly, ever irritating windows balloon sprang up in the bg.. “ CAPS LOCK IS ON. . .” ..tab jaake’ dimag ki batthi jali!! lol!!
