Somehow or another my “offline” login to my Windows box seems to have been changed during the last session to an online account attached to my email address but with a different password that I don’t know.
It tells me I can change this at screwyoucustomer.microsoftarebastards.com
Presumably if you own Windows you’re expected to have a spare Linux machine around to change your password with when they lock you out. Good job I do! And that it has never randomly changed my login password to a different one I haven’t memorized without telling me it was doing that, or even with telling me it was doing that.
Yet even then, when I attempt to change the password at live.or.dead.youre.doomed.either.way.com it’s telling me “There’s a temporary problem with the service. Please try again. If you continue to get this message, try again later.” which is about as unhelpful an error message as I’ve come to expect from Microsoft.
So I appear to be locked out of my Windows partition, indefinitely until Microsoft fix their servers, on a machine I deliberately set up to use a local login and never an online login, because something apparently innocuous I did last time I was logged in switched me over. I don’t even know what I did.
Will Vive get this Linux version soon please!
