Lol, no, I don't think so. I took a job that pays $20K/yr less because there weren't assholes in the office. Having actually worked somewhere that was devastatingly dehumanizing* I realized the value of happiness.

You know it's time to quit when you're in the dentist office, getting a root canal, not numbed because it's infected so badly the *caine's don't work, and that is preferable to being in the office. Moment of clarity.

My bank has it.
Something I have, something I know.

If I am on a trusted computer I can store the something I have portion and only need to provide the something I know.
If I am at an untrusted computer (or just got a new computer I want to trust) I get a PIN texted to my phone (trusted) that I can enter along with my normal passphrase. the PIN is from a OTP, so is useless after one use or 5 min, whichever comes first.

If I lose my phone I can notify the bank (same as lost card) and both the phone number and stored token are invalidated.

To validate a new phone I take it to the bank.
