Digger is my homey.

For security reasons, we have to change our passwords at work every 90 days. Said passwords have to meet criteria for non-alphabetic characters, length, embedded words, etc. And you can't re-use them for to years. I also need to create root passwords for eight different environments. Needless to say, I use up a lot of time coming up with passwords that are not easy to crack but are easy to remember.

The last cycle, one day left to change the password before lockdown. I need a password I can remember. I need something I can remember. What is something I can remember?

Remember Tunn3l17!

It's not often you can get 90 days of smiles out of one idea.  And I have a new password now.

And if you're not reading Digger yet, I forgive you, but it's moving into endgame, so get yer butt over to the archives for about two hours and get to know the most non-heroic hero it's ever been my pleasure to read.

Brilliant! I've been thinking, I need to use more secure passwords. I am one of those bad people who has a habit of password reuse. So even though my p@$$w0rd$ are leet-speak and in a foreign language, I use them over all of my different systems and that's not secure. I may borrow from your wisdom, here.

Um, John, are you aware that your entry isn't locked?

This is a problem? That password's been invalid for three weeks, and I can't use it again for at least two years.

I read and reread your message; it sounded like you were talking about a new one. Your present tense threw me off.

I had tried to read Digger at one point, but gave up due to the donator lock they had on most of the archives.
(they'd only had the first hundred or so strips available along with the current one. Anything else you had to donate to get access to)

It's wide open now. I'm cruisin' through, Murai and Digger are meeting the skins.

Carnivorous squash.

I want to snuggle it. And Ed. Yis.

If you kids don't keep it down back there, so help me, I 'll turn this funeral around...
