I have been away from the computer for a long time, caught up in work, etc... I recently reinstalled ubuntu after my previous escapades, and chose a password out of a list I have. When I needed the admin. password to add a user, I blanked. I used all passwords on the list.
Is there a terminal prompt or something that will give me a hint?
