Password? What Password?

whats-the-passwordPassword? What Password?

Well, who’d a thunk it? Those of you who follow this blog know that I frequently ask you to share your thoughts. Some of you do, and for that I’m very grateful. Yesterday though, I made an interesting discovery.

My niece told me she wanted to make a comment, but had forgotten her password and without the password she couldn’t “like” or comment on any post. You could’ve knocked me over with a feather because I distinctly remembered setting up the blog without a password.

I scratched my old head and wondered what I should do next and suddenly remembered something my old friend Rick Hood told me ages and ages ago. “Computers are the stupidest thing on earth” he said.

I gasped! “Stupider than a turkey??” I couldn’t believe it.

So, I decided to try to trick the computer into thinking I’d made some changes. So, I ticked the password requirement box and saved the changes. After a few minutes, when I had him busy downloading a file, I slipped back in and removed the tick and saved it again. Real quick-like, you know?

Next thing I knew, I got an email from Sadie Baby telling me she was able to comment without a password.

No PasswordI said all that to say this: If you’ve tried to leave comments on my posts in the past, but were frustrated by the need for a password, then fear no more! I’ve done away with that (again) and you shouldn’t have any problems at all. And, please Gentle Reader, if writer-clipart-9TRaRpbacyou notice anything wonky about this blog, or any other that I run please shoot me an email and let me know. I love hearing from you!

While I still have your attention, let me guide you to some really great bloggers. Drop in and see what they have to say. You’ll be glad you did!

About Ol' Big Jim

Ol' Big Jim, has been a storekeeper, an embalmer, a hospital orderly, a medical biller, and through it all, a teller of tall tales. Many of his stories, like his first book, New Yesterdays, are set in his hometown of Piedmont, Alabama. For seven years, he lived in the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, Amman, Jordan where he spends his time trying to visit each one of the thousands of Ammani coffee shops and scribbling in his ever-present notebook. These days, you can find him back stateside, still filling notebooks.
