    The password consists of six characters, including one capital: Mickey, Goofy, Daffy, Donald, Bugs, Elmer, Concord.

    At least we got away from the floating block…

    Does this mean strip is NOT running out of material?

    I have some apps that require eight characters, including a capital, and a “special” character. If you can’t remember your password, they’ll send it to you —if you remember the password to your email.

    In damp weather, numerous small earthworms crawl up the side of our building and die there. Sometimes their dried bodies look like alien messages. Or communications from humans reincarnated as worms. What was that Lord Dunsany short story similar to that?

    It is not smart to chisel your password where everyone can see it.

    Looks like my wifi password 15 characters of «~§▬↨↑↓→←∟↔▲▼ ☻!" like stuff, added mac address filtering too and when friends or relatives come over and ask me what my password is, I say well…I need your mac address first, then I tell them I hope you know how to type these characters on your keyboard.

    There are three basic rules for making good passwords:1. Make them long2. Make them easy to remember3. Make them hard to guess

    So why do some companies go out of the way to make you violate these rules? The password must be between 6 and 14 letters long with no special characters. HELLO HACKERS! You don’t have to try any other combinations. This site is easy pickin’s.

    Passphrases are better than passwords. One of my “retired” passwords is based on the fact that Babe Ruth hit 60 homeruns in 1927: baseball!Ruth60HR@1927.

    I haven’t used that password in years, but I can still remember it. According to one tool I have, it would take the Russian Mafia a year and a half to crack it. Unless your name is Bank of America or CIA or some other “important” body, they’re not going to waste their time on you.

    To an extent I depend on “security through obscurity.” I have a minimal footprint on the internet. It’s kind of like when someone brings in doughnuts at work: you don’t need infinite willpower: you just need more willpower than 12 other people. I’m hoping that my passwords are harder to crack than millions of others and that the crooks will get bloated on the low-hanging fruit.

    I understand B.C.’s issues — if you make your password too obscure, not only can you rune for hackers, you can rune for yourself as well.

    I wonder if this is based on a real alphabet or just the artist’s imagination. I’m always interested in exotic alphabets.

    I wonder if this is based on a real alphabet or just the artist’s imagination. I’m always interested in exotic alphabets.-This script looks a lot like Thai, Cambodian or Armenian scripts. -BTW, I wonder if anyone would use the word “password” as their password.
