i guess this would be one of the ultimate catch-22 situations.
i don't have a computer, so i use this one at the library.
the library has cell phone signals blocked to cut down on
noise from the many inconsiderate patrons, and rightly so.
the ##@&$$^^## e-mail people insist on sending me a
code via my cell phone to unlock my e mail access for security
concerns. they send me a code to put in and assure everyone
that i'm really me, but by the time i can get outside and receive
the text message with the code to unlock everything and get
back inside to my designated terminal, the log in for the
security code says " log in has timed out- please re-enter log in"
or some bull doo-doo like that. now, i have to request them to
re-send a code to my cell phone, but it's a different code
other than the first one because the opportunity to enter the
first code has time out, and i have to start over and re-enter my
e mail address and password and request them to text me a code
so i can enter it and assure all concerned parties that i'm
really me and so on, etc. etc
