today is remembrance day....

i lost both my YAHOO accounts (nostalgia19992000 and dr_priyanka07) in october last year...it was painful..really painful!! *goes into drama queen mode with a violin in one hand and a box of tissues in the other*

all of a sudden my memory had failed me and i couldent recollect my newly changed password....unfortunately the overconfident me had the same changed password to both my accounts....
i fretted...fumed...cribbed...cried...begged to god to bless me with 'super-hacker' potential just for one minute (only to regain my lost password)...but all in vain!
there were people i couldent notify as i had lost out on all their email addresses...all my contacts were gone!!then there were those who i had deleted from my list but knew were just a click away...but now they were gone too!! in short, i was basically doomed!
all i could do is hope and hope and keep hoping that everyone in my contact list and out were somehow magically informed about my blog and would go around and read this and contact me some way or the other....

it was a disgrace to my ego who reigned in the glory that i can never forget anything...leave alone something as important as this!!
i couldent accept the fact that i would never be able to access my yahoo account anymore...
memories of messenger and mail haunted me night and day...i lost out on my sleep...
i remember those nights i used to wake up in cold sweat and shake myself from the nightmares of some evil gremlin changing my password and using my account to send spam all over the world....
i also started believing that this evil gremlin was reading all my well preserved mail which i had labelled 'sacrosanct' back then and deleting them one by one...it was slow TORTURE!! :-/

its almost a year now, and i sometimes am still haunted by the fact that maybe someone really important keeps mailing me on there and i dont even know! :-/
i know its a far fetched possibility but what if maybe ...just maybe!!
what if im notified of something very very important on there.??

what if i win some 5 million worth lottery and they decided to notify me on that email??

what if i won a dream date with brad pitt and since there was no reply from me, they decided to give it out to miss 'so-and-so'?? (ok for those who are wondering, people who i hate might be reading my blog too...so moi thinks naming her wouldent be that safe!! :-/)

what if mr right has mailed me saying that he is getting married??

what if he even has informed me of the birth of his newborn on there??
and here i am blissfully unaware....and there he is probably thinking how rude i am to not even congratulate him on the happiest ocassion (of his life)...sigh!!

what if all those stupid 'astro' sites i had subscribed to had something very important to tell me...maybe the stars had changed their mind and decided to get lucky for me??

what if there was that one chain letter waiting in my inbox which needed to be sent to 10001 ppl from ur friend list to bestow good luck on you forever..and more importantly what if it was the one that actually worked!!?? :-/

what if i was being awarded the bookers prize for a book ive not yet gotten about writing??

WHAT IF................

nooooo!! i need to STOPPP...im hyperventilating now!!

OK THANKYOU ONE AND ALL..u may go back to whatever it was that u were doing..shows over..hmpf!! :-/

@ keshi
ohh join the club dear...though i think ours is more of 'selective amnesia' :-/

and i tried everything possible...contacted yahoo..but they asked me to send them the answer to my secret question to which i had typed in some rubbish (which i couldent remember)...so much for being over confident...
chk out the link in the post..thatll explain why i did that :(

Prats said...

Just 2, doc!!! relax...I must have forgotten the passwords for umpteen number of sites and mail id's :( I've now given up on my ability to remember...I think I was far better with telephone numbers and a paper diary....
and i'm sure the dream date still stands...but Brad Pitt was caught up with his twins...so relax....

Veens said...

Pri said...

@ prats

neways i guess its no use crying over it...
ahh the dream date...its too late and too bad for brad pitt..i just changed my mind (and my dream) around an hour back :p
heehee

@ veens
ya sure dear...ive already reserved a permanent membership for u :p
too bad u lost ur password...but guess ur dad must be relieved now isnt it? until ofcourse u register into another 'online shopping' site ;)

@ mad
sorry to say...but ur ex must have been a real loser to do that :-/
neways hope he dosent do anything like that again just to prove i-really-dunno-what-to-you *rolling eyes*

Pri said...

@ khushi
sigh! atleast someone is smiling :-/

@ mayz
OMG!! how did u survive it?? dint u have any other way to contact them??

@ blogboy
ohh looks like im not the only absentminded one around here :(
i wish it hadent have happened..losing all my mails, messages, archives all at one go meant a lot to me....
but then again, probably it had to happen this way :)

@ aiz
ohh im flattered u remember sharing that memory with me....
thanks :)

Rambler said...

is it so difficult to recover passwords on yahoo??..really?

Pri said...

@ rambler
naah...normally it isnt...u just email them ur security question and answer and they sort it out for u....
but its ME we are talking here...so everything HAS TO BE difficult :-/

Solitaire said...

I have had this happen so many times already that I have become obsessed with forwarding my important emails to all kinds of other email addresses. I have more than 10 email addresses. Crazy stuff!

Keshi said...

**but they asked me to send them the answer to my secret question to which i had typed in some rubbish (which i couldent remember)


omg thats the most ANNOYING one! I always forget the ans to secret bloody qns.

Just 2 days ago it happened with my Qantas club membership..I forgot my PIN and the answer to the secret qn, and they wudnt gimme any details over the phone! I was so furious I asked em what they needed to know to prove that its me who's calling...I was prepared to give em my DNA evidence too lol! then they asked abt 100 personal qns and finally agreed to gimme bak my PIN. Its a fucked-up PWD world at the moment!

Pri said...

@ solitaire
well a burnt child dreads fire i guess...
but some ppl like me never learn...i stil dont keep any backups...sigh! :-/

@ keshi
u bet dear...u bet! :(
but atleast u got it sorted out in the end....
no such luck with me

Pavi!!!! said...

oh noooooooo! ur scaring me! n yahoo is where i store the mails that i want to keep forever!

I'm going to write down my password someplace n then take a back up of all my imp mails!

Pri said...

@ pavi!!

(heehee my idea of getting back at YAHOO for what it did to me---promoting GMAIL!! :p)

Vandita said...

LOl... ure way too cute

anuj said...

Now .. can one not click on 'forgot your password' .. I guess there are various ways of getting it back ..

hopefully .. you would have tried ..and tings would have come to square one again .. n thus no solution .. or was there one?

Pri said...

@ vands
thanks...i soo want to believe that :D

@ anuj
naah...it was a 'no solution' situation..i tried ever possible thing...but the smartass that i am had made things difficult for my own self by putting in some wrong answer to the secret question which i myself couldent remember :-/

laddu said...
