That all depends on what kind of chemicals you regularly use or if you
believe in existentialism or not.
Me thinks you're nine bits shy of a byte. But just in case you're for real,
If you have a rescue disk or install cdrom boot up with it and type the
command "passwd". What ever you type will be the new password. It is case
sensitive. Then exit or "shutdown -h now". If you don't have a rescue disk
or cdrom it's a bit more tricky but it can be done. Ask back and I or
someone will tell you how.
Oh, And consider having it tattooed on the back side of your eyelid. If you
choose a dark color with your eyes closed in a bright light you can still
read it. <Grin> Disclaimer - don't take this suggestion seriously.
