I wanted to try the bonanza of 5 Gigs of online storage offered by Windows Live. Armed with my old Hotmail ID, I fancied myself a winner. But alas, it was not to be!
Though I remembered the id, I forgot its companion, the password. What with having completely forgotten Hotmail after leaving it in disuse for over 10 years! It was my first web-based email in the days of text-only web-surfing using the Lynx browser.
Besides, the term “hotmail” itself has nowadays earned a negative snob value!
Coming back to the password story, I presently noticed the saviour link “Forgot password?” over there. I clicked it. Wanna know what happened afterwards?
These pictures would speak volumes! (Please click on them to get the bigger picture!)
This is the pièce de résistance!
