And the customer will simply set it to "123456".

I had a client in the financial business, and the so-called, "Office-Manager" / Comptroller set all the passwords to "password" and several variations on this! He REFUSED to set them to secure passwords, even though if they were hacked, they could have lost millions of dollars in their client's money and securities!

That company is now someone else's headache now.

I am quite happy with all the precautions that were taken in preperation for this storm. Better to be over cautious than not! Clearing all the roads in the Tri-State area allwed all the plows to clear the roads better than if they were dealing with a lot of cars, and accidents on the road! Same with all the rails, commuter, and Subway.

I was living in Boston during the blizzard of '78, where everyone went to work as usual, then the storms shifted and the call for evacuation was called at 2pm. TOO Late!!! The damage was done!!! The city was shut down for a full week, and Route 128, all lanes, in both directions, end to end, were a bumper to bumper parking lot for the entire week!

I congratulate the Goveners of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, plus the Mayor of the City of New York, for their correct decisions in preperation for this storm!

Once it hits the fan, the only rational choice is to sweep it up, package it, and sell it as fertilizer.
