Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

02/23/2005: Old Mac Milt

As an Update to my ongoing kevetch about those Wormy, Diseased Apple Guys...

Yesterday the internal power supply part for the Performa 6300 MAC came via the U.S. mail. (Though supposedly Len's Tape is still MIA as far as I know...$#@%$ Post Office.) And with this part, Olde Mac Milt (the e-bay seller) sent DIRECTIONS about HOW to open this Chinese Puzzle of a hunk-o-junk. What a GUY...I have to give him an excellent e-bay rating and send him many Thanks!!

My Teenage Computer Geek (Lauren's boyfriend- Garrison), Lauren and I followed these directions flawlessly. We were able to swapped out that faulty internal power supply and Voila...Bob is my Haamsta (one of three)...it powered up that MAC.

The kids had a scream, laughing at what's on this virtual, computer scrapbook of memories from 1995-1997. A frozen section of time...like those time capsules...for us to review. It is Tooooooo Funny. It even has the girls toddler - preschool voices recorded telling stories. Now, if I can keep them out of Busy Town, Lode Runner and such...maybe I'll get to see what is there too. :-)

Problem is...we can access the Children's files without a Password. But, in these intervening 9 years, I no longer remember what our password would have been. Nor, apparently, did I write it down in anticipation of EVER being able to use this computer 9 years later.

So....All you Computer Geeks...anyone got any ideas how to bypass this password...or reset it without remembering what it was?? Looking for HELP from all you serious Wizards out there.
