Opps... I forgot my password.

In my quest to keep this 'blog updated everyday, I ran into an obstacle so grande... so gigantical... so Esperanto... that I could not overcome the force. I came across the password barrier. Let's talk passwords for a moment shan't we? Here's list for passwords that are easily hackable:


Now here's a list of strong passwords (one of them being mine that I use for sites like Blogger.)


The problem with strong passwords is that they are hard to remember. For instance, here's my AOL strong password.


My daughter recently had her Yahoo account hacked by what I assume was a hacker. The password was only medium, not well done. The hacker then began using her Yahoo email account to send out SPAM. I've since changed her password to the following:


She hates typing it... but it's the only way to keep the pirates at bay. Don't let them dock their hacking boats close enough to swim onto the beach that is known as your computer's Sandy Bridge Processor.

With that being written, expect a follow-up tomorrow, next week or next year.

Yours Truly,

I ate too much tofurkey.

My new year's resolution is to create a new blog entry here everyday. In the meantime, it's nothing but excuses. WELL EXCUUUUUUUSSSSSE ME!

Who knew tofurkey was loaded with L-tryptophan? And to make matters worse, someone slipped a Soma into my vegan gravy. I slept for days. That pretty much covers from Thanksgiving until now... but what about the blogless period of time from November 12th to Tofurkey Day? Well, on a few of those days, I had writers block. Then someone stole my computer keyboard. Also, my dog ate my blog.

Since this blog is 100% high tech, here's my story and I'm sticking to it. I bought a Samsung Chromebook. I think I'm digging Google Chrome as an operating system. I got the one with 3G so in case I can't hack my way onto a WiFi network, I get 100 megs a month to send that emergency blog post to Blogger from wherever... whenever. There's also 100 gigs of Google Drive cloud storage for two years as part of the deal.

I may even take back the Windows 8 touch tablet I bought on the Wacky Wednesday before Black Friday. Let me now finish today's posting with a joke. Windows 8.

You've been great. Don't ever change.
