Poll question: It took three tries for me to log in, just now
Should I stay or go?

I really haven't had THAT much to drink. It's not as if I fell into my dishwasher yet! lol

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. You log out?
I never do that. The last time I did, I had to email elad to let me back in.

Pretty embarrassing.

2. Me, too.
My laptop always needs to be logged in, but it remembers the info, so no prob. But I was once logged out on my desktop. Would still be, if not for Elad.

3. I had a major brain fart the other day
*Completely* forgot my PIN at the ATM. After three tries, the system locks you out, and I had to go to the bank and straighten it out. I think I've finally reached numerical/password overload: social security number, passport number, driver's license number, nursing license number, land line number, cell phone number, debit card number, zip code + 4 ... I'd be worried about incipient senility, had the bank lady not reassured me this happens all the time. Those last four numbers made me have a mental hiccup.

It was worse when I was working. We were required to change out passwords every four weeks: there were two, and we couldn't use any that we'd already used in the past year. Since almost everyone wrote their new passwords down and stuck them on the computer or hid them under the mousepad, the system struck me as self-defeating.

At home I've simplified my life: one secure password, one really secure password and one really, really, really secure password. As long as I'm allowed to choose it and it's not randomly assigned - the way the bloody PIN was - I'm okay so far.

9. I change all of my passwords every 3 weeks.
I'm paranoid like that.
