Re: Huh?? (Off Topic)
Life is shit.
Its when you get a message from the states that a friend has passed away, and he was 9 months older than me that the above phrase hits home.
I still have all the chats we had regarding life, the universe and everything stored away, even asked his widow if she wanted them.
She had to do the 'jump through 7 hoops of hell' thing because he'd only made a will leaving everything to her and had the no idea about all the digital stuff left behind, because at 52, you dont plan for that sort of thing, unless you have to.
Hence my will also has a copy of my FB and steam passwords stored in it (updated at 3 month intervals)
And as for the banks et al wanting 17 copies of death certificates and probate certificates.... yes they do and they do run a post deaths service
"Hi my mother has died, can I have access to her accounts?"
"we need death and probate certificates..... hmmm its odd.... your father died recently too...before probate completed transferring his assets to your mother... we're not going to do a thing until we see legal copies of everything ... and even then we're gonna drag everything out for nine months just to add further suffering and heartache"
"You heartless bastards. we're setting the family lawyer on you... good luck in your next job"
(this above conversation is a seriously abridged version of what happened when ma and pa died within 4 months of each other)
