I'm going to be super secure and make different passwords for everything, using a wide character space and avoiding dictionary entries ... then put them all behind a single password!

... wait ... what?


This is not secure folks. If you do it you're f***ing retarded.


Modern encryption is currently near enough impossible to break if you don't have the key but remember that the way you always get into this password management software is to use a password, which is by far the weakest link. All someone needs is that password and they can see everything. For the love of god, don't do what Patrick apparently does and put your bank details in there!

Great episode! I enjoyed the SSD talk, because im looking to get one to put Windows 7 on my PC! Veronica you looked extra pretty in this episode! But looks like someone drunk all the diet coke again.




Also the bloopers was great, but what was the matter with your ear?

wiriradar is a good starter program for linux wifi exploration. gnome under linux has a keyring also. but I try to avoid it.

kismet might also be used in addition to wifradar. I avoid using anything that will easily corral passwords. It just makes them easier to hack as a whole.

Default Hotmail

In defense of Hotmail, I have had a Hotmail address since 1996. I really don't care for Gmail, Yahoo, etc. I also have way too much to change / move anyway.

A bit more emphasis maybe should have been put on making *good* passwords. If your password can be found in a dictionary or on your drivers license, you deserve the cyber butt raping you are going to get.

Oh...where did Patrick get the bear hoodie?
