What’s Your Password?
I thought today (in case I fall down a well tomorrow and Lassie is drunk) that I might make a list of my passwords.
This was just a passing thought… just a brief breeze across the surface of the deep pond that is my wondrous brain, causing only the slightest ripple. Hahahahaha… Sorry, I'm entertaining myself now... Where was I?
Oh, yeah, passwords.
Ever stop to think, really think, how many passwords we all use in our daily lives?
Start with my MacBook which is password protected because my kids would be on it 24/7 if it wasn’t. Okay, cool. I put in my password and my computer is up. We’re good to go.
I have four social networking passwords that I can think of including my blog, facebook, Twitter and my handy dandy StatCounter to keep track of it all.
I have five mail accounts. I actually have a couple that are active, but I cannot get to because I no longer know the password and have long since lost the master E-mail address it was attached to. So we’ll say five.
I also have a family ProBoards site we all frequent to stay in touch. Another password.
Alright, we’re all talking now. Let’s have some fun! I have passwords for Amazon, Kindle (yep separate), iTunes, Netflix, NCGA (golf), Riverview Golf, and Audible.com.
Cool. Then there are the finance sites. Two Credit Card sites, two debit card codes and an online banking password, not to mention Sallie Mae for my girl’s student loans.
Let’s see, carry the four, take away the two… that’s
If that was it, that’d be enough, right? But that is not it. Because tomorrow I have to go to work. At work, maybe because it’s a bank, maybe because that’s just how work is these days, I have no less than nine passwords.
That’s a lot.
How many passwords do you have? How many do you think we should all have? Is this a pain we’ve all come to accept and deal with or is it cool to have passwords, like a janitor’s big ring of keys. The geek with the most passwords wins!
