    Default Those darn passwords

    With all those darn passwords at different websites

    I was thinking if you had trouble spelling a word, one way you could remember it would be to use it as a password.

    trouble is how do you spell dislexyc

    We don't talk about passwords or logins here, the server might be listening.

    I use an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of my passwords for various web sites.

    Dyslexic is spelt this way> :-)

    YMMV!!!

    Lately it doesn't want to know my password.

    Good to be able to post again and thanks for the good work.

    I'm sure all PressF1 fans agree.

    I am now going to Preview and Spell check this one. If it gets on then at this time it works. :-)

    Spot th deliberate spelling mistake... th for the..

    I have previewed and spell checked and back in Edit mode. Now check the preview and spell check again now I know I have a spelling error.

    Spell checker found two instances of the word "th" in the above so appears to be working.

    Posting now. :-)

    My CardFile is just so handy - everyone should have one.

    This is from Graham Petrie many moons ago:

    TIP: Save yourself entering all those details over and over...
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sick of entering name and email at every post? I have found some software which is initially a 128bit encyption password database, but allows usernames and passwords to be auto entered at sites using a drag and drop interface. However, other information can also be stored such as required for an F1 post. I simply drag an icon on to the post page, and all my details are entered.

    Try it esp. advanced features

    It is called KeyWallet and is downloadable freeware at http://www.keywallet.com/ or http://www.webattack.com/get/keywallet.shtml

    I know other software out there does similar things, but I found this to be a nice tidy little app which fufilled my purposes nicely (It just so happened that I was in the middle of designing my own software to do the same sort of thing so I have been saved the trouble.)



    I haven't tried it myself -- all my passwords are written down on a sheet of paper which is then buried under all my mess on the PC desk. No one here is brave enough to disturb anything.

    Mozilla has a wee log-on password cache built-in. It appears to be quite good, especially as it can then be password protected as well. And that feature shows you a small meter that tells you if your password is any good.

    But as they say, if you throw enough grunt at something any password can be broken.

    I broke my Lotus Notes ID file password (11Chars long) by a brute force attack on a P3 667Mhz in only 3-4 days. There was no dictionary attack involved, so right from the letter 'A' (or 'a' coz its case sensitive) it went... MILLIONS of combinations I tell ya, especially seeing as they're case sensitive!

    90% of my passwords don't really matter at all. I have a select few which I use for those.

    Others do matter... I don't use the same passwords for these types.

    Also I believe one is probably better to have a password they can remember than to be writing down passwords for everywhere.
