So here’s my advice: check to see if you actually know your password, because you just might not. And, even if you do, make sure you have a way to get back into your computer in case you forget it.
A very valuable reminder from Brent Simmons indeed. I never trust my memory. I think it is because I have been burnt many a times when I simply won’t remember a thing I always do. I have copies of things I would need saved at multiple locations, in both digital and physical forms. I try to be ready for that time as much as possible.
