I must not write down my password? What Greek burglar is going to force the front gate, get through the front door that is solid steel with an incredibly complicated lock, go down to the basement instead of up to the living quarters, then break into my storage area where my comuter & sound system are, then wade through the masses of paper work from several concurrent projects and find my password? Having found my password, how is this resorceful burglar going to use it?
There is far to much hysteria about passwords. Maybe true for the small number of people at work in a shared area where one or more has access to super-sensitive material. But surely totally irrelevent to we ex pats?
Similarly hackers. I have never seen any attempt to hack my computer revealed by security software - but then, I am careful about what sites I access.
Years ago, I had a discussion with the head of security at a London merchant bank. He really thought his system was secure because everyone's password was changed every day using a system generated string of 16 random characters. How, I asked, do people know their new password? We send it to them in the internal mail, was his proud reply. Are the envelopes distinctive, I asked. Then I gave up!
