While trying to leave S2 a message I found myself feeling as though I was one baby step from losing not only our identity, but my sanity as well. Losing reading eyesight is already a given for this old lady, I'm afeared.

As one is on the last step to "publish" the comment one must get through the spam protection by copying a "word" into the little box. It is always an interesting array of letters in an almost impossible font that leans and sways with the morning coffee/cocoa. I tried my best to copy the darn word, but twice blew it. Now I am worried. Will the computer gods think that I am trying to break in and sabotage my blog? Am I some evil identity that came about from S2's Palin controversy thread. (There you go, S2, I didn't drop the number two most goggled name, that of Johnny Depp....oops ;-))
Anyway, I am finding that I cannot understand accents due to decreased hearing and the constant ringing in my ears. This makes calling tech support a royal pain, but so it goes. This weird word thing leaves the same "taste in mouth." So in my panic to get the word right the third time I actually got out a flashlight to shine on the screen, a magnifying glass just hoping that if I made the word bigger I could decipher it, and said a little prayer to the google gods in hopes they would give me an easy one for the third try.


OK, is this case sensitive???

Well, tell everyone about the secret password! Now we'll have to change it...btw, if you are signed in, you shouldn't have to go through that step.
