WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS.......
PRAY! IT WORKS!
Ummm, I suppose writing two blogs in a day could be compared to 'Double-Dipping', but I'd rather think of it as FOLLOW-UP. Yeah, right!
In a comment, Mary C let me know that St Anthony was "The Man" (to ask for help in finding lost stuff). Well, I'm here to tell y'all, "Yep! It works--if ya work it, that is" -grin.
Since early 1990's I have NEVER used a backup--for re-installing, that is. In fact, all I had then was either big floppies (I mean BIG!) or--finally--a tape backup system. But, never had NEED for that biz. Until jjjesterday (that's Spanish!). So I prayed to St A. for help, and I gotta tell you HONESTLY (one day I'll write about honesty!), I walked right into the cabinet where I had placed a 250GB external HD with a complete backup on it. Only two weeks old, yet I had literally forgotten all about it...WOW! Thank you St Anthony, and you-know-who-somewhere-in-Colorado-GRIN!
So, wanted you to know that St A did not give me the new password, but gave me the .ddb file, covering the time from ten years ago until July 15, 2008, which worked, using the old PWD. Tomorrow's blog will be another "GOD" story, whose inspiration came from this morning's 8AM meeting.
