Passwords, Passwords, Passwords

I don’t know about you but I have been inundated with passwords. Let’s take a brief look at the passwords of my life.

  1. The ATM.
  2. Checking and Savings Accounts.
  3. Retirement accounts.

On a side note it would be nice if these accounts actually had some cash in them, but I digress. Time to resume the list.

  1. 27 email accounts each have a separate password.
  2. A password for the product that contains all of my passwords.
  3. My gym locker.
  4. The alarm code/password.
  5. A password to access the computer.
  6. Cellphone, office and homephone voicemail passwords.

In short I have accumulated 1,654,365 passwords. And because I am concerned about theft I have been careful to make sure that each and every one is unique. For a while I used just one word, password to serve as a universal pass key. But I got rid of it, not because I was afraid of someone discovering it but because I couldn’t remember it.

How crazy is that. I can remember the 1,654,365 individual passwords but not something as simple as password. So you might be interested in learning how I determine what is going to be my password. Well the answer is simple, I use a complex algorithm developed by The Shmata Queen and refined by yours truly to provide myself with a subset of digits that have been applied to the Euclidean hyperbola theory first extrapolated and postulated by Da Vinci and Galileo.

More to come.

    What a great post because it’s so true. I started to keep a record of all my various accounts and passwords, but I lost it, so now I am S.O.L.

    Ahhh, you are turning me on! 😉

    Ah ha! I followed your mathematical equation, and now I know every one of your 1.6 million passwords!

    You’d better change them.

    Ezzie,

    That is one way of doing it.

    Prag,

    It wasn’t my intent to gather so many, it just kind of happened. I only use a few of them regularly.

    and I thought I had way too many emails, all 5 of them. You sure top me there!

    See, I just use things that fill in my passwords automatically… and hope my computer never gets stolen. 🙂
