Nope. The Internet is for Porn.

Shostie: unlikely: Happy Hours: My password is actually "********". I'm safe in admitting that because I know Fark's filters will translate my password into a bunch of asterisks.

Wait, seriously?

Filter Test: ********

The trick also works for SSNs:

***-**-****

It doesn't work for obviously fake ones, like 123-45-6789 or 987-65-4321.

make me some tea: You know what would be fun?

Remote into a coworker's computer that has speakers while they're at lunch (make sure the monitor is off), bring that thing up and flick it every so often. Watch the reaction of the cubemates.


CSB

back in the mid '90s I was working as a sys admin/jackass of all trades related to anything even remotely technical.

I remotely logged in to other co-worker's computers quite frequently and just for fun I made them play the sound effect of doors opening on the Enterprise whenever I did.

I wasn't spying on them. There were legit reasons to log in to some of those machines. One was to test security. One day I decided to test if a log was generated for failed password attempts. I telnet'd to Michelle's computer - one of only 2 in the whole company that had a modem at the time. I entered "Michelle" as the password fully expecting it to fail. To my surprise that was actually her password.

Well, that's not so surprising in retrospect. It was the mid '90s and she wasn't a techie. But a few years ago, I was farking around at work and for some reason I decided to guess a co-worker's password. The account would be locked if I made 3 unsuccessful attempts so I only had 2 chances to try without him noticing there was an issue. Well, I had root access anyway, so I could have fixed that. The object was not to hack into his account and do anything evil. This guy was actually a software developer and we were well into the 21st century by then - but I also thought he was an idiot and apparently he was. It actually took me 2 tries. It wasn't "abc123", but it was his first name.

I get frustrated by having to remember a million farking passwords too - and I do sometimes fall into the trap of poor password practices, but FFS, can't you at least be more imaginative than to use your name as your password?

And as soon as anyone reads this, Drew's logs will probably show people attempting to log in as Happy Hours using either "Happy" or "Happy Hours". Give me a little more credit than that. My password is actually "********". I'm safe in admitting that because I know Fark's filters will translate my password into a bunch of asterisks.
