Maybe it's your mom's in a way of telling you to go see a psychiatrist for a diagnosis. Be it ADHD, bipolar, or depression.

The dislogic of people who hate lockdown also being the same people who refuse to follow any of the guidance that would avoid a lockdown being needed is arguably the single most frustrating thing about this whole year.

Whilst browsing flats this evening, I was reminded how estate agents are the very worst of humanity when the below kitchen was described as “A lovely kitchen with space for a dining table”

Maybe they meant to be an fixer upper? Or are they overpriced for a fixer upper?

Fixer-upper or not, the kitchen is not “lovely” and there is most assuredly not space for a dining table. It’s a bald-faced lie.

Yeah you're right it's a lie.. Unless they meant to remove the cabinets side. but I agree it doesn't look promising.

Work has gone absolutely potty with IT security in recent weeks. First, they transitioned a lot of HR stuff over to an iOS app of their own design. Then, in order to log into that app, I needed two further apps and to go through a lengthy device registration process on the internal network. Now, I need to change all my passwords to at least 30 characters. I have five that I need every day, all 30 characters, none can be the same or “too similar” to either each other or any other password I’ve used in the previous 12 months. And the reset process if I forget them? I need an RSA token, two of the other four passwords and two other members of staff, one of whom needs to be a manager.

What the fuck? I don’t think the NSA has this level of security. This is mad.

Damn! That is password hell. Forget one of your passwords every day and see how long it takes those necessary managers to relax security protocols a little.

Asking someone to remember even one password of 30 fucking characters should be illegal by international human rights laws. 30 characters is an insanely stupid length requirement for a password, for any occasion.

Hell my password to login to the till system at work, when I first made it, was 7 characters long. After about 2 weeks of the job I got tired of having to type that in multiple times a day so I changed it so my password is only 2 characters. My alternate login's password is 3 characters and the exact same thing with a 1 on the end of it.

And everyone I work with knows my password.

Make them sentences that are easy to remember.

Here's one to get you started:

38 characters. You're welcome.

(Please tell me they don't require special characters or capitals or any other rubbish like that.)

Thats pretty much what we have to do, but then, we are in financial security, with customer account information, direct access to bank networks etc, why on earth your company feels the need, is beyond me. :crazy:

Recently, I logged into Meetup in that sad, pitiful hope of finding something that would make me feel a little less isolated. They insisted on updating the password. It was a @#$#@ nightmare--a fuss kept coming up over one issue or another. This is Meetup--not a password for system responsible for handling millions of dollars!

Years back, a computer system at a place where I worked had two sets of passwords. One was needed for the computer itself IIRC, the other was for the application software it was running. There were cheat sheets on a shelf above the computer. Someone from IT came along one day, and found out about those cheat sheets. I wish I'd witnessed that scene... Although he or she probably would have had resigned acceptance: "A lot of the people using this terminal aren't good with technology."

The US Presidential election dragging out for days, followed not too long after by the 12-hour Unus Annus channel deletion livestream, have really fucked my sleep schedule to levels of nocturnal existence I haven't experienced since I got hooked on Fallout: New Vegas during the existential crisis that was my 2nd year of university.

I mostly watched Unus Annus for Ethan/CrankGameplays, who is among my newer 'celebrity' crushes because I'm currently obsessed with him and his cuteness.
