A sad tale of technology dependence

A sad tale of technology dependence:
Fortunately, this particular laptop has a fingerprint
sensor. What a cool piece of technology! I still have no idea what my
password is, but every morning I simply drag my index finger over the sensor and
Windows logs me in.

Last night in the woodshop I sliced my index finger open while
attempting to see if a plane iron was sharp yet. (It was.)

Today, my &*%#$@! laptop thinks my fingerprint has
changed.

Yes a sad tail indeed…. my right index finger is marked by a knife cut, has been since i was 8. fingerprints change, and they change permanently….. computer access by biometrics will always cause a problem because of the innate mutability of the human body.
