Software setups that require password aging force me to use simpler and simpler passwords so I can remember them.
At my last job my original password was "DepletedUranium1sH3avy", once they implemented password aging it became "passwordXXXX" where XXXX was the month/year.
Which do you think is easier to crack?
Hydrolicly controlled clutches rarely need clutch changes, I typically go 100,000 miles before even looking at the clutch now.
Automatics are only close to MT's in mileage at cruise, they still lose a lot during acceleration (prior to lock up). Look at the consumer reports site, they show the numbers.
I do however agree that MT's are being marketed in lower end vehicles in the US (not so much true else where).
I will never forget the first time I saw the Milky Way, on a cloudless, moonless night from the Sargasso Sea. The view was indescribable. Try to imagine a band of clouds illuminated by a electroluminescent light source, but not where the clouds are in our atmosphere, but as a back drop to the stars above. Its humbling.
The Author claims you can read the SSID and reprogram another tag with this SSID.
This is not true. The SSID is not a R/W field.
While technically you could create an active device to pretend to be a tag with the fake SSID, it certainly is not trivial.
