Passwords are the thing …

… These days everything is password protected.

Because? Because cybercrime lurks in every corner of the globe. We are supposed to value our privacy. Most of us do.

The extent to which this password protection is extended.
Is becoming obscene.

My macbook wants my password. I enter it. Then it desires another password. I enter it. Then it goes back to the first password asked for.

Why? I just gave it. Does it not have a memory? Is that what a computer is? A memory system?

If one fails the password test. After three tries you are disabled. Where is my disabled badge? Surely I can park in the disabled spot?

To recover the password. These days means entering a new one. It requires a two step process. One that usually ends in a text to my phone.

Enter the numbers sent and it will open to a door. Where one may enter a new password.
Then again, in case a mistake was made the first time around.

Underneath the guidelines of two uppercase, eight letters minimum.
Plus minimum two figures, we have a new password.

It has a helpful little figure underneath the information. Designed to inform us of the password strengths? Happy with your new password?

Now we have our password. Back to login and try it out.
Finally an email is sent telling me my password is now changed.

No shit, Einstein? Okay, well one can see that it would be helpful to know that and to ignore, if it was yourself?

Of course it was me. I sent you my email address, que’lle idiote.
