Somehow people think that if there's one flaw then the whole project should be scrapped. They also think that it should be at an insanely advanced stage before it's ready for use. They want to skip the decades of development that happen from real world experience and go straight to some futuristic magical car-pod.

You're not over-analyzing, you're completely missing the point. It's not his line, it's his momma's. She's the one who says the line in the movie and he attributes it to her every time he repeats it. In her day the chocolates didn't have a little guide. It was hit or miss.

Most likely the two symbols that were shown on the isleaked website were also in a different password of mine and they never really had the proper Gmail password. I have no way of verifying this. However, I can say for certain that I've never used my Gmail password anywhere but Gmail. I have unique passwords for every single account I have on all websites. I use UPM as a password manager on my Android phone with a ridiculously long master password. I doubt it got hacked.

A total surprise to me that my email address was on the list, and they had the current password. I changed that immediately and activated 2-factor authentication. So the next question is how did they get it? It's a unique string of random crap so it had to be intercepted rather than brute forced either with a malicious android app or, more likely, I signed in on a compromized computer. Anyone have any ideas?

Many jobs are lucrative, but so what? Try to do work you enjoy. If you go off trying to learn something just because it's lucrative you'll probably end up in a job where you're maintaining some obsolete system that's held together with duct tape. Not fun. Probably not worth the money for the amount of anguish it'll cost you.

If I have not seen so far it is because I stood in giant's footsteps.
