Lost passwords? Really? If he doens't remember it, then, boom! $200 million lost? Sounds legit. Is this one of our guys?

@Purple_Pills ? Say it ain't so.

    Right. That wouldn't be believable in a fucking movie.

    What kind of market is this that you can lose $200 mill. on a fucking password. It's like we're playing grab ass with monopoly money.

    Indeed. I would be up 24/7 scouring my house and my car and office for some fucking clue to jog my memory.

    It would be the most careful typing of my life when I took my next shot.

    2ish years ago there was the guy who died whilst being the only person who knew the master password for the ewallet.

    Something like $130M. * POOF *

    Fuck this guy - he's an idiot.

    If you KNEW that losing your password essentially means losing your life, you sure as fuck would have that password etched in your bathroom mirror, written down on a piece of paper and locked in a safety deposit box, put in a sealed envelope with your attorney in trust. Whatever. Christ, it's standard practice for even the dumbest of us motherfuckers to have backups made of our data, whether that's dropbox or a floppy disk. This is nothing different than that.
