One of the pains of contemporary life is the need to keep a list of one's computer/internet passwords somewhere.
In my case, at least, that place is a physical piece of paper, always in a "secure location." I spend so much time on-line that the list has grown to be fairly long. Further, I haven't been able to get away with just having one password and using it in a lot of different contexts. The different sites where I log on with passwords have different rules about what is and isn't allowed, and some require regular change in passwords, etc. So the list keeps getting longer.
One of my year-end chores involves a review of the list, with all the scratch-outs and revisions that I have inserted there over the last twelve months, and the creation of a new clean version of it.
Oh what fun. Makes me feel like I have to go see that movie about Alan Turing soon. I am both the Germans and the Brits.
At least I'm getting to vent about it on my blog.
