Don’t change passwords so often

I’m not asking you to take my word for it. In fact, don’t listen to me at all. Listen to science.

Anyway, yes, we know. There’s not a lot we can do about it though, thanks to silly PCI requirements and auditor requirements. They literally fail you if you *don’t* enforce a password change mechanism.

*sigh*

America – Wake up

James pointed this out over twitter: http://is.gd/4MV1s

Doesn’t surprise me, it seems that the US has taken the line the ends justify the means for a while, including torture, and the (slightly) indirect causing of torture.

Just one thing, America. You really cannot complain when your troops are tortured. There is a reason everyone accepted the Geneva Conventions, but it looks like the US has decided to ignore them. (Like the UK is ignoring Human Rights in some cases now, and is trying to eat away our privacy.)
