Yeah. Play some Castlevania and maybe one day you can beat Mega man!
Maybe the government could do the same.
Set the default to share everything with the NSA and just hide the setting somewhere obscure, like at the bottom of the sea somewhere or something.
Or just change where it is and replace the defaults every now and then.
Guesswork. They take what they think they know and use it to make a guess that will change every time they find out what they thought they knew was wrong. It's fun to follow but don't put too much faith in it.
It sure beats: "Because God!"
My thought was something about how Amazon would be much more successful than eBay too. Then again eBay sell stuff differently.
I think it's a cool idea
"Because we know why and you don't."
Isn't it quite a bit better that I say use one password for Facebook and then identify on a lot of other places with the Facebook credentials rather than use the same password on lots of different pages there each one can be broken into and my password cracked rather than just Facebook?
Also if it's say logging in to write a comment on some blog or say on Tom's hardware or whatever why do I even need the freaking log-in in the first place? I would be happy enough with leaving my name.
If you don't have a tracker of some sort for all your passwords and you don't want to ask for a new one each time you want to log-in re-usage will happen.
I wont make unique strong passwords in every place using my mind.
I wouldn't care if criminals could post as me on Tom's hardware
Also what I kinda like is the bankid stuff we've got here where you can log-in into your Internet bank, make some kind of certification and store that locally and then say when you are to declare your taxes you can log-in using that and a password. Obviously fail if someone get hold of the certificate in a way which have it work + password but don't need any unique or good passwords for each page at least.
(the dictionary complain about login and reusage so
I don't have a smartphone.
I think those random password generators and "keeptrackors" is the most convenient and best but I've also considered using https://www.grc.com/offthegrid.htm or that together with something else.
As for the the guy talking down the "bunch of words"-approach I guess one could take words from different languages and then throw in a few extra characters and numbers in a few groups here and there just to mess up if someone only use dictionaries and then it would become somewhat harder (though if one use the same password or the same places for things always it's not all that great anyway.)
I've seen claims on them that they are broken down by sun light.
Regardless I throw my soft plastic in the recycle bin for soft plastic and before we had one of those I used the "rest garbage" bin instead because back then it wasn't recycled anyway so regardless of which bin you used it would get burned.
Plastic bags hold better and hence they are better for me.
What I normally use as a grocery bag is a 4 SEK IKEA Frakta Medium bag though, often lately I haven't brought it and taken those small fruit bags but that's pretty stupid, but if I don't have anything else and don't want to pay for a larger stronger plastic bag that's what I do.
A regular plastic bag is like 1.5 SEK, the Ikea Frakta Medium is 4 SEK as said. Paper bag is likely at least 2 SEK.
The Frakta holds way better and is about the size of the paper bags.
$0.9 in the US.
Plastic bags over paper bags? (Though in lots of US movies and series they have paper bags with no handles.)
Mouse over trackball?
Condoms over.. urethra plugs?
Matches over bow and two pieces of wood?
I was thinking about Firefox over IE but then I got reminded Chrome is likely the most used browser then so I guess you're right on that one..
I know. I once used 1Password and good passwords, but it didn't worked with Opera and all OSes. KeePass is more transferable but I feel I want to be able to access from everywhere and I also want to have access to passwords for things not web-related.
The first solution I had was passwords in a gpg-encrypted local text file but I stopped using that when I stopped using the drive which held both the file and the gpg key.
Also it was a reference to all those old "bla bla You're not allowed to login bla bla bla" messages on various machines.
Got to be a whole freaking lot better than the 8 characters stuff even with various cases, numbers and symbols.
I love how people with a clue suggest people use different passwords everywhere and then more or less every single page in the universe require you to have a freaking login and often don't use any central stuff for doing so (somewhat better now with facebook and Google then again do I really want to connect my accounts that way?)
Guess a certificate / private key and password isn't all that much better but it's way more convenient.
I've made one:
(Actually that would make a pretty good password.. maybe I sho..)
Betting on the latest started up one because "Bitcoins have become so expensive already! This one is cheap!" seem like a worse idea.
