eBay Passwords

Last week eBay detected an attack on their databases and issued an email to all users to reset their account passwords.  That’s fine and excellent customer service.  One thing that is a clear leftover from when eBay was founded (19 years ago) is the password requirements:

  • 6 – 20 Characters
  • at least 2 numbers, letters or select special characters

It’s significantly out of date.

I know I will probably start a polarizing discussion on this (if anyone even reads it that is), but these are my thoughts on passwords:

I like the 2nd requirement, it’s the first one that bothers me the most.

A strong 20 character password is very hard to make and remember.  Almost all of my passwords are sentences of various length and characters, but almost all of them are over 20 characters.  I take xkcd’s way to make a memorable password:

xkcd strong password

I know I’m grossly over simplifying the whole password cracking part, but generally, longer is better.  Every extra character helps.  So naturally a random sentence is easier to remember, and harder to crack then something forced to be 20 characters with a number and special character thrown in because of your arbitrary constraints.  It took me more time then I care to admit trying to reset my password because of those settings, (made even harder by the fact that their reset password field doesn’t tell you things are the same).

Granted, all of this is moot if the passwords are stored poorly, but I’ll give eBay the benefit of the doubt and assume that their passwords are properly hashed and salted, (hopefully with some Sea Salt at the very least).

Elektronik Supersonik

I’m not sure if the video is bad, or the song, but either way, this is entertaining!

And it’s supposed to be that way.  Just watch that whole video, and if you aren’t laughing like crazy, you aren’t a real human.

Also, to make it even better, watch it on YooouuuTuuube.com, where I found it, it’s waaayyy better tiled across your screen forever!

Also, the song is called Elektronik Supersonik by Zlad, Santo Cilauro.

Carol of The Bells

Carol of the Bells is the Best Christmas song of all time, just in time for Santa’s trip around the world.

Probably the most famous rendition of it is Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Christmas Eve/ Sarajevo 12/24.  It’s my favorite one that’s for sure.  Here is the video in all it’s awesome glory:

From the people who brought us the Engineer’s Guide to Cats comes some weird Laser Beam Cats to Carol of The Bells:

And, just to be sure you all will hate me, Ding Fries Are Done:

Goodnight, and Merry Christmas everyone.

Ding Fries Are Done!

I know I posted about this last year, but, that link has since gone dead. So, here is a new, undead one.

Also, here are the lyrics:

nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah
da da da da, da da da da

da da da da, da da da da
da da da da, da da da da

I work at burger king
making flame broiled whoppers
I wear paper hats
Would you like an apple pie with that?
Would you like an apple pie with that?

Ding fries are done
Ding fries are done
Ding fries are done
Ding fries are done

I gotta run
I gotta run
I gotta run
I gotta run

Don’t bob for fries in hot fat
it really hurts bad
and so do skin grafts
Would you like an apple pie with that?
Would you like an apple pie with that?

Where is the bell?
Wait for the bell
Can’t hear the bell
Where is the bell?

Ding fries are done
Ding fries are done
Ding fries are done
Ding fries are done

I work at burger king
making flame broiled whoppers
I wear paper hats
Would you like an apple pie with that?
Would you like an apple pie with that?

Ding fries are done
Ding fries are done
Ding fries are done
Diiiing friiiiies aaaaare dooooooone

Also, here is am mp3 of the lovely song for your downloading pleasure:
