Symi Saturday Photos

Here’s a sweeping up from the floor of the photo department; a few random leftovers from the last couple of weeks. The hot news from the desk today is that all my saved logins and passwords (in Firefox) disagreed overnight. There was one of those Microsoft updates happening last night, the kind where they tell you ‘this will only take a few minutes’ and you still have time for a holiday to Tenerife while you wait. Suspicious.

Woke up today to find everything working fine except for every single saved login/password from the last five or six years has completely vanished from my Firefox settings. I eventually tracked down their help department and have sent a message via the community support as they don’t appear to encourage you to speak to one of their paid staff. Luckily, I have a secret and up to date spreadsheet where I record (most) passwords, so I was able to log back into the Symi Dream blog admin. Such a pain in the Boris if you ask me.
