I thought I had met all kinds of paranoid until I saw someone who uses a 40 characters long password to login to windows... random characters, including symbols... and he has to type this every time he uses his computer...

      I have a friend whose had an 80 character password. I say had because an update reduced the max character amount and he was completely locked out because he COULDN'T type the password anymore.

      Is it a password or did he think he was writing something in Word? :)

      That is exactly the stuff that should be promoted.
  • That moment you finally give up and buy a license for the industry standard software you always avoided buying because it was too expensive... and discovers it's way more powerful than similar software, way faster and actually helps your productivity... and then you keep asking yourself why you didn't buy it earlier...

      My advanced telepathic powers say you have something against Photoshop :)

      Was the license expensive? I bought a perpetual Adobe CS6 license while it was still offered. If only I could get it running on Linux. GIMP seems a good alternative to Photoshop, but Inkscape is not a good replacement for Illustrator yet.

      I don't know how much a Photoshop perpetual license is now, but an Acrobat Pro license is around US$ 599,00...

      *nods* Sounds about right. I bought a CS6 package as a student, so it was heavily discounted.

  • "The gods of the Disc have never bothered much about judging the souls of the dead, and so people only go to hell if that's where they believe, in their deepest heart, that they deserve to go. Which they won't do if they don't know about it. This explains why it is so important to shoot missionaries on sight." (Eric, Terry Pratchett)

      Maybe I should get around to reading a Discworld novel or 2. I haven't read anything new in years.
