    Better Call Saul

    Password managers

    That is a good point, maybe will add a 9 on the end to make super safe! No one should be able to crack that, even with 4 Q bits.

    SN Listener Forever (ME) Makes ~TWO Security Mistakes

    I think we have all done that in the past, but not now in this day & age! I remember 20 years ago I had an email from what I thought was my paragliding instructor. We were both into films, and the Matrix had been released. The link in his email was pointing to "The Matrix screensaver", the...

    I don't think I could be reminded every year of that.:mad: At least they lasted, I used to have to buy lights every other year. Each time one or two lamps would not work, and you could not obtain any spares as they were different sets every year.
