Re: are you changing your passwords because of heartbleed?

Re: are you changing your passwords because of heartbleed?

Now let's add a second layer of complexity that includes the name of the system you're logging into. Let's say you need passwords for Yahoo mail, Gmail and Bank of Hawaii. Let's also say your...

Re: are you changing your passwords because of heartbleed?

I think the easiest way to explain my system is to start with a very simple version, then gradually explain the additional layers of complexity.

First, you need an ordered list. An ordered list...

Re: are you changing your passwords because of heartbleed?

Re: Best Opening Riffs?

When I started replaying the opening riffs in my head to songs like Smoke on the Water, Stairway to Heaven, Sweet Home Alabama and Day Tripper, they are SUCH a part of what music is to me that I...

Re: Growing red ginger?

Must be a Windward-side thing. I live in Kaneohe and red ginger grows like weeds here too. I finally got fed up trying to keep them maintained and got rid of all the plants at my house.

How often do you vacuum?

This topic came up in a casual workplace discussion. Two remarkably austere coworkers vacuum every day. Many said at least once a week. Most, including me, fell into the "about once a month"...

Re: Is 101.5 now acid rock?

Tutusue, I'm sorry you've lost a radio station you loved, but I'm with scrivener and Pomai -- I LOVE the new format.

Re: Ban New Years fireworks?

This New Years was pretty quiet in Kaneohe, although I suspect much of that had to do with the rain.


I've always been told that fireworks are supposed to scare off evil spirits and bring good...

Re: As Seen on TV Products

Speaking of that, in Japan (where you don't have to look too hard to find something REALLY weird), there are ear-cleaning salons where you can pay a young woman to clean your ears for you.

Re: As Seen on TV Products

Re: Cloud Atlas

I know this is a bit conspiracy-theorist, but I get the feeling many movies these days are designed to elicit this response in order to boost DVD sales.

Re: Mileage on electric vehicles over the Pali

According to Nissan's sales literature, the Leaf has regenerative braking. I don't know how it compares to similar systems in hybrids, but I would imagine they are all very similar.

Re: Mileage on electric vehicles over the Pali

I don't have an EV, but the way I understand it, their regenerative braking systems would recharge their batteries as they roll downhill. So even if they use a lot of electricity to get up the hill,...

Re: Curiosity landing on Mars

I'm relieved and overjoyed that Curiosity made it safely to Mars. Given the failure rate of Mars missions and the almost comic Rube Goldberg complexity of this one, I wasn't optimistic. I know...

Re: Smaller cars in Hawaii?

I used to have a 500cc motorcycle in the early 90s, and the few times I bothered to calculate my mileage, I was getting about 50mpg. After that, I had a slightly modifed and far more powerful 750...

Re: Pixar's "Brave"

I saw it and enjoyed it. Like pzarquon said, not the best nor the worst. But even the worst Pixar movie is still a pretty good movie.

Ellison already owned a house on that island. I don't know if it had a porch or a deck, but now he can stand on it and look at his lanai.

You should definitely have the title to your car if you own it outright. You wouldn't be able to sell it otherwise. I've gone though the process several times in my 30 years of car ownership, and...
