No, that was a bromeliad, spray-painted to look vaguely alien.

Some people are exhausting and/or exasperating, and will never read the manual first. But that doesn’t change my response, which is always a friendly “good question, we documented that in our FAQ, here’s a link.” It takes less time to treat all people like people.

Maybe it won’t end well, but HR will make sure it ends quickly.

No, it means computers are still doing a bad job of implementing security, and are still bad at interfacing security to users. If it had been done well, this prompt wouldn’t have been needed, or even allowed.

94 is ridiculous. I draw the line at 93 - no more.

Computers ask for passwords all the time. Most people simply don’t think through the consequences, they just trust the machine has a valid reason for asking.

The Russians simply don’t care about the collateral impact. But that’s different than implying that they are targeting shipping or transportation.

It’s actually on a precision scale; they have been sending spoof signals wherever Putin goes. The intent isn’t to divert ships or airplanes, but commercial small drones that think they’re near airports (according to their onboard no-fly-zone lists), and refuse to fly.

Ask Vlasic Pickles how deals like that worked out for them. Oh, that’s right, they filed for bankruptcy in 2001. And Schwinn had to move their manufacturing to China. Caveat venditor.

If you pass them at all, you deserve 20 years (with time off for good behavior). There is no reason the printer shouldn’t be charged with counterfeiting, too.

This is my neighborhood, this is happening to 1000s of Chinese, this is what I risk to interact with you on Twitter- while you made demands and supported my harassers. It may be tough to accept, but anyone who calls that "drama" is a colossal asshole.

I’ve seen it done well, as PCI compliance requires password reuse checking. They used PBKDF2 twice, once with a work factor for daily use, and once with a much higher work factor used only for pw reuse checking. When changed, they discarded the working hash.
