And how for something completely different...

"Several months ago I decided to turn over a new leaf and start using
better passwords.  So when I got this cool new Sony Vaio laptop, I set
it up with a really good password that I had never used before.  It was
long and it contained a bunch of mixed case letters and numbers and
funky punctuation.  I made sure nobody was ever going to guess this


The new password on my laptop is "Eric".  And just in case I forget my
name, I'm going to write it on the outside of the case with a Sharpie."

Read the rest for a chuckle.

(you might remember Eric Sink as the chair of the IETF HTML WG
back in 1994 or so.)
