  1. Re: are you changing your passwords because of heartbleed?

    Ultimately, you need to come up with your own algorithm using your own ordered list. It needs to be something you'll remember easily, and something you can figure out in your head very quickly.

  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. Re: are you changing your passwords because of heartbleed?

    I work in the computer industry and need to memorize dozens or hundreds of passwords. Managing my passwords securely was always a challenge, so several years ago, I sat down and made a concerted...

    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"...

    Poll: 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.

    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.

    So do I.

    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.

    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,...
