Scary moment ..

[ #14571 ]
.. is when you realize that you have forgot a password for your GPG private key which you have been using quite actively for 3 years. Memory plays dirty tricks sometimes - I was able to recall this password 15 mins later.

  • A few years ago, I forgot the PIN to my ATM card. I went to the bank, provided enough proof of identificaton, and they mailed it back to me a few days later.

    As soon as I saw it, it struck me that of course this was my PIN.

    I guess what happened is that I forgot the number, and relied on muscle memory to push the buttons in the right order. Then one day I forgot the number and couldn't remember which buttons I'd press for my ATM card (vs. buttons I'd press for something else).
