Comment 3 Clicks to Chasey Lane (Score 0) 185

I dont need to navigate to any website. It takes three clicks to Chasey Lane and that's all that's important:

- click on Search after I type her name
- click on the magnet link

Alright there's a fourth click to start the movie, and I have to reach over to the box of tissues, but we're talking about clicks here.

Comment Re:how about REMOVING ARBITRARY PASSWORD LIMITS! (Score 1) 480

True story. I get my mobile phone plan, as well as broadband Internet, from the same company. The broadband branch of this company regularly sends out email newsletters, one of them about how to create a strong password. They advise including things like hyphens, underscores and what have you.

So I thought, finally they cleaned up their act! I try to change my password for the "webcare" site of the mobile phone department of said company, and.... get the error message "your password contains illegal characters".
