    So this morning I changed my OS X password and didn't write it down anywhere. It was something pretty random, and I don't know if I'd even recognize it if I thought of it. I know, I know, I'm an idiot and didn't do anything right here. I'm the only user on this computer, don't have a master password set up, and don't have my install disc for another month and a half (due to my AmeriCorps program I'm moving around a lot and didn't bring it travelling with me).

    Is there anything I can do short of taking it to an Apple Store?

    I know some of you may think I just stole this computer, but I swear that is not the case. I don't know how to prove that to you, but it's the truth.
