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 (which, yes, I'm getting around to rather tardily this year) 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 glad I saw a movie about a year ago about Alan Turing. I feel like both the Germans and the Brits in that piece of history.
At least I'm getting to vent about it on my blog.
