Not as PC as I ought 2B
May I mention a bit of a shock I've had recently? I have a little YouTube channel which holds my rather limited collection of mountain videos (4) AND my personal bank of favorite Irish amateur mountain movies made by others. The latter contains at least 100 movies including some superb work by the likes of our very own mcrtchly and kernowclimber, dilivd1, murraynolan, distancefading and many more. (If I didn't mention you please do not be offended) I was totally tied up at work over the summer but before departing for our holiday in Kerry I decided to change the password to my YouTube site from the rather obvious "pillock" to something a tad more mysterious. Unfortunately (for mankind) I promptly forgot the new mysterious password and consequently my little channel has now floated away from me like a spacewalking astronaut detached from the mothership. The site remains "alive" but has been permanently severed from me. I have tried evry possible combination and permutation in an attempt to regain access, but to no avail. Consequently, you may have noticed that my normal words of praise for new mountain movies have been absent from this place. I am bereft. Any ideas?
