She should really google nicknames before stealing them.

Being associated with me can't possibly do anyone any good.

Solving common password annoyances

So these days, you have to register an account with every single fucking thing you do online. Understandable, by itself, a mildly annoying side effect of a digital world.

But wait. You must choose a password. It must be between 6 and 14 characters, have 1 letter and 1 number, 1 upper case and 1 lower case letter, must be 24 characters long, must not contain a word, must be changed again in 45 minutes, and no special characters.

What the fuck?

So, unless your IQ is 185, you're going to devise your own insecure means by which to remember these passwords, such as writing them down or saving them into a file. Wow, that's fucking secure as shit! Great programming! Stupid mother fucking idiots...

I'm not going to take full credit for what I'm about to tell you, but I'd be wrong not to share this. You don't need passwords that are impossible to remember. You don't need 1000 rules a password must follow. Which makes it far less secure by eliminating possibilities anyway, fucknards. You don't need a special card with all your life's passwords written on it. What you need is a simple solution.

Great yarn joust chemical.

Say what? That's an example of a password or, more precisely, a passphrase that is very secure and easy to remember. Take 3-5 random words, string them together, and you just created a password that maximizes security with remembrance.

Unfortunately, most sites enforce ridiculous password rules, and prevent registrants from selecting such eloquent passwords.

So, go out there and light a fire under their asses and tell them to wisen the fuck up.
