Here's some tartare I made. It was so good.

Steak tartare is delicious but there's never enough crackers. If you like tartare you should check out kibbe nayye at your local Lebanese establishment. Delicious.

My Mum used to have our own twist on it...

A great bowl of hot tomato soup with it.

The mix of the hot soup and the raw meat is delicious.

Why can't companies that require a require a customer password login for their websites put something on the login page reminding customers what their password convention is. Most of my passwords are variants on a particular template. But I have to vary them slightly when websites require a special symbol, don't allow special symbols, require a greater-than-normal number of characters, etc. If I could recall what the password configuration requirements are for Website A, I'd know how I would have tweaked my template to fit their format instead of having to guess/remember.

Well, what will really get you is that the safest things companies could do is automatically  lock accounts after x number of lockouts (5 or 10 is a pretty good number).  Also, the symbols, numbers, etc rules are actually counter-productive.  Machines don't care about symbols for cracking passwords, and those requirements lead to people writing down their passwords which lead to them getting stolen.


Passwords like "zthequickbrownfoxjumpedoverthelaydog" are nearly impossible for computers to crack through brute force, where the 6 character must include 2 symbols other than @, with numbers is really easy for the computer to track.

Makes sense. And yeah, you're exactly right in your first point. Except the site today (not one I access often) has a three-strikes and you're locked out policy. I also have long held (I'm not a tech guy, so based on nothing but anecdotal experience and intuition) along the lines of your second point. If you make it too hard for people to remember passwords, they'll write them down and put them in obvious places. When I worked for the government we had to use various systems and websites managed by different groups within my agency, in other agencies, by outside contractors, etc., with ridiculous and totally divergent password requirements for things that weren't at all sensitive. My petulant little form of protest was to write the passwords for all of my non-sensitive accounts in Sharpie on a big piece of paper and tape it to the wall above the computer. Yeah, I'm a fucking rebel.

I use the monikers of Styleforum superstars as my passwords. Since many of these superstars only exist within the space of my mente, my passwords have good security to them.

Most hacks are social or customer service engineering and not brute force password guessing. It's pretty easy to get a human on the phone, use common knowledge password reset queries, and say that you lost your old email and now you need the reset sent to hackers@gmail.com. Alternatively, phishing.

I use a password manager with a different random password for everything, plus two factor authentication for important stuff. I have a couple critical passwords (Gmail, bank accounts) saved manually in case I get locked out of the manager. It's a bitch when I'm traveling, I don't even know most of my own passwords anymore. But it's really secure, especially with the two factor. If anyone tries to change my shit, I get a notification on my phone and can block it.

Just be careful with 2-factor on your phone.

If you lose your phone, and have a phone that will show texts in a pop up even when locked...someone could potentially unlock your account without having to unlock your phone (and then be able to unlock your phone using the account they just unlocked).

Most sites have the password question already set up like "What is your hometown?" or "What is your pet's name?" or "When did you lose your virginity?" On those few websites where you can fill in your own password question I always put in "What is your password?"
