I just tried it.
it didn't work for me.
It didn't guess any of my passwords.

You didn't check the box marked "Airdave's Password List"

Cats name + year of birth
A harder password is cats name + year of birth + wallpaper colour/pattern.

My email was hacked once from China, perhaps on reflection, because I used unusual words that probably appeared often in my internet exposure. I now use mispelt words, combinations of keystrokes and instead of adding bits together, interlace words like this: 'ltihkies', something that is difficult to predict but easy to remember!

Of course since hackers bots are probably reading this thread, I don't actually do any of these things!

I just signed up for a skype account and immediately got three solicitations! These bots appear to use psychologist's method of interogation, so bewary. I simply ask the bot to type a word backwards, that seems to work.

If you are using a recently purchased LENOVO laptop, you should change the passwords you used on it after removing the embedded spyware.
See this post:

I had read your thread concerning the lenovo laptops John, and i have to say, that's one really fishy malware for sure (ha ha)
About password issue, my brother use pattern on the keyboard instead of words, for instance 'zse4rfvcx' made a triangle on the keyboard, though it only works for single type of keyboard (on QWERTZ keyboard that would be 'yse4rfvcx'), or you could use the numpad to create smartphone like codes (which my bro uses)
But again, that's my bro's idea, he's one source of creative but ocasionally impractical idea on my family (but i kinda liked this one!)

No one pm'ed me or gave me any block out messages, but I think I'm going to make a tougher password write away!

Thanks for the heads up,
John.

I am #3. "Dalmi" asked me if I would be interested in
Quote:
"hot sales at government and police auction for Cars, Trucks, SUVs"
and tried to lead me to an auction site or something like that. Too bad I got my Hummer last week. With Sean Connery as chauffeur.

Anyone more to start a "Dalmi club"?

P.S.: I have deleted the PM and changed my password, too.
