Creating Stronger Passwords

Before reading this quick post, please check a password very similar to one of yours (not a real one!) here.

How long would it take for the Tianhe-2 Supercomputer to crack it? 2 seconds, 3 minutes, 18 days?  I hope yours was at least a week, but luckily most hackers and bots do not have supercomputers.  So how does it rate against the Conficker botnet?  Hopefully at least a day, that would give you enough (barely) time to change a few passwords if you knew you got hacked.

New Website!

Hello world;


It’s finally here.  The new website is up and invitations are sent.  All are welcome to peruse around, at their own pace.

This is just my little slice of the internet, and is always in flux.  It’s also a bit of a digital sandbox for me.  In the near future, I would like to get some reviews, instructionals, or just plain old cool little projects up on here.

Stay Tuned!
