My gf’s dad had a stroke 2 months ago and now can’t remember his windows password to access his laptop. Any simple way around this? He can’t really communicate verbally anymore so the password hints and prompts aren’t helpful.

No chance its linked to a hotmail password? I know some modern laptop on windows let you log in through that

Have you checked for notebooks with written passwords? That's how my dad remembers passwords.

Cheers but don’t think he has hotmail, just has his name and asks for a password.

Good advice, tried this but could only find his marks out of ten for restaurants he’d visited, 6/10 for Nando’s in 2009, not impressed.

It should be possible, what operating system is he using (ie Windows 7/8/10)?

Just taken advantage of the GoPro Digital camera trade in to get a ton off a GoPro 7 Black - any FUK'ers use 'em? Any advice on essential accessories (other than spare batteries!).

Don't do it, Justin.

Gave it a go for a Season coaching my daughter's team - fucking nightmare.

The same two parents will help you with the nets every week, when they can't make it you're fucked.

One of the aforementioned will run the line, the other 'doesn't understand offside' ; understandable, she's a single Mum and is just there 'cos her daughter's Dad supports Chelsea and she wants to make Daddy happy (you never EVER see the Dad though - rumour on the touchline is that he's doing time for armed robbery OR glassing someone at Wetherspoons). Mum's got that haggard, downtrodden, 'life's chucked some shit at me' look but would deffo scrub up well enough for you to fancy her after 4 pints of Estrella when she over familiarly throws her drunken arms around you in town one Saturday evening. Don't go there though, she wears too much black, definitely goes too heavy on the mascara and CK One and seeing her on Sunday Morning would be all kinds of fucking awkward.

All the other parents are lazy cunts who moan to you about the weather, the price of a pair of boots/socks/shorts/shin pads, their daughter's position, their daughters preferred position (every fucker wants their kid playing up front), match fee's, how you conduct training, why you don't set up a team Facebook page, why you're not on Facebook ('it would be so much easier to get hold of you so I can feed you a bunch of bollocks at short fucking notice about why Amelia can't make the game this morning'), why their kid isn't starting, etc, etc.

Coaching badges are the most patronising thing I've ever endured too.

Complete ball ache AND you'll buy a whistle at the start of the Season and it'll be nicked after the first game.

I just watch, put the nets up and run the line now.

Wor Noah's coach is a saint but these lines did make me giggle, I am a net "puter upper" and run line occasionally
when he coach manages to collar someone. Being said coach is a nightmare especially the younger the bairn.

dont do it

Feel an introspective MS Paint thread bump coming Burt Laughing out loud

I'm already 2 seasons in and agree the parents are the biggest ball ache although we do have a few kids who have no interest in football and don't really want to be there but mummy wants them off the Playstation for a few hours so signed them up.
