Multiple Personality Syndrome

I have a problem. I have multiple personality trouble. I blog here. I blog there. And there and there. I Twitter. I am on Facebook. Twice. I am registered with Friends Reunited - twice or is that thrice? I think I have other forums - that's right I have a MySky too.

All is well until I have a senior moment. Then my memory fails me. I can't recall which email address/password combination gives me access to which account. I have a Facebook account which I've not been able to access for weeks. People may wonder what happened to me/her.

I wonder if that is what happened to Rilly Super. Perhaps she forgot her email and log in password. And now is happily blogging away on a fresh site. Who knows? I don't. Neither does any one of my other personalities . . . .

It's not a senior moment. Everyone has, potentially, the same problem. Including me - well, I used to have that problem. I employ 2 strategies to overcome it...
1. Where possible, I use the same username, email address & password for everything. Not always possible, because some sites have different requirements.
2. I have a file on my computer - password protected - with all the sites I use & the username, email address & password(s) employed in each. This is my real memory since it is more reliable than the one in my head...

Have I helped?

I do what Robert says, point 1.

I'm not yet sophisticated enough to adopt stategy 2 (although I'd use pencil and paper in case I forget the password to the file ...)

Thanks Robert and Mark. I think in my next PC incarnation I'll go for option 2. I think I'll have to get the password to the password file engraved [tattooed] on my forehead. ;-)
