Re: How on earth do you keep track of your passwords???

Yes, I've heard a few pieces on NPR about the passwords.... I'm wondering how long it will take for companies to implement, and will they grandfather in old passwords so that I still have an obnoxious jumble of weird characters, and will I finally be done with rolling over the last number in the pas...

How on earth do you keep track of your passwords???

UUUUGGGGHHHHHHH I have terrible memory and I can't keep track of my passwords to save my life... I used to have a system, a simple mental algorithm to generate passwords. Then someone decided we needed capital letters and numbers in the password.... um, OK. Then someone imposed a minimum password le...

Re: Most users online at once.....

It's interesting you noted that--I had noticed it, but forgot to ask about it. The previous "Most users online at once" date was (I think) May 17, 2004, which made a lot more sense.

Re: Most distinctive job interview?

I haven't interviewed in a while, but when I was job-hunting, it always struck me how some of the interview formats at the time heavily favored skilled bullshitters. I get the lame straight-forward format: person looks over your resume/CV, and when they find anything that sounds interesting they ask...

Re: bad reasons for having a baby

To offset all these babies my conservative friends are having. I need to do something to help tip the scale. I miss having a full pony tail.

Re: uninvited house guests

I'm usually one for killing... but since my girls started naming the spiders in the house and then getting upset when they disappear, well, now they've crossed into the realm of 'welcome', haven't they? A lot of them seem to be named 'Lazlo'.

Re: What was the weirdest food you've ever eaten?

Depends on the definition of weird, and of "food". Weirdest animals I've eaten are scorpion and silk worms (which take the cake for most disgusting experience I've had eating something). I don't consider either of those "food". I find most meat/gelatin loaves so loved in German cuisine extremely wei...
