I am just getting back from a 5 day camping trip. We had a great time as always at Disney's Fort Wilderness. Now I am back and hear my bed calling me, but I wanted to catch up on my blog. Being unplugged for these past few days were nice, but I am almost as happy to have my computer back as my own bed!
Even after just a few days unplugged, I had problems remembering all of my different passwords and usernames. It seems every different textbook, resource and website requires a different type of username or password.
I had the hardest time keeping them straight. I tried a Rolodex and a small address book. These were OK, but then I always seemed to not have it with me when I needed it. Then I tried a new way to keep track of them all (except for the major important ones like banking...), I started using Excel. I have a workbook for passwords. In this work book I have several different worksheets; one for school, personal, business and my kids passwords. I have one column with a hyperlink to the website, my username and password. I can then click directly on the hyperlink to go to the website. Then I can even copy and paste my username or password if it is one of those crazy ones. Give it a try!
