Random happenings in the world of passwords

Recently, I was in a meeting where several people gave presentations via a projector. As almost always happens, there were minor glitches in transitioning the projector connection from one notebook computer to the next. As part of her presentation, one unsuspecting person needed to log in to a site. Without looking at the screen to […]

Good passwords and how to use them

More and more, we’re seeing attention being given to passwords and personal security. It seems obvious that passwords are an integral part of securing your personal data, but that part of the security message seems to have been glossed over until recently.

The Sticky Password team has become very interested in helping Manatees in Florida. So much […]

Your online identity – dead

I just found about the web 2.0 suicide machine. Wow! That’s what I call finding a need and filling it. Once you get past the gallows humor – and, even though it is really only one graphical page, it took me a good while to do so, because they’ve done a great job of playing […]

New Year’s Resolutions

While visiting my parents during the week between Christmas and New Year’s, I cleaned up my dad’s computer a bit. I try to do this for him every couple of months. The last time I was able to do it was at the beginning of August, so things were a bit ‘messier’ than usual. My […]
