#1 Nearly went into panic

Well, after updating to OS, and after going through the set up, I accidentally turned on filevault I really went into a panic while trying to log in. After doing a bit of research, I saw the podcast, and finally I managed to log in. Now I just have two wait for the encryption to finish, so I can turn it off ironic though, since this had already happened to me once. Guess next time, I will need to be paying more attention to avoid this. Lol.
