Nihilistic Passwords

by Rick Blechta

It’s March Break up here in Ontario, and even though I no longer teach in the public school system (or at all for that matter), it still feels like a holiday to me. My wife does teach (flute) privately, so she has the week off because most of her students are unavailable anyway. Anyway…holiday!

Since I am nothing else if not a supportive husband, I’m helping her feel like she’s doing something out of the ordinary, even if we are staying home.

What I’m trying to say is that the weather is nice, the sun warm and she wants to get out of the city to do some walking. As a consequence, I don’t have time to write the post I wanted to. So what you’re all going to get is a very funny list that might help you figure out unbreakable passwords for your computer applications and webpages.

Here it is, and even if those big, bad hackers do manage to break your password, you can at least take comfort that you no doubt will have depressed them beyond belief.

And that’s worth something, isn’t it?
