This was certainly something interesting

This was certainly something interesting to return from vacation to. Apparently Blogger was h4x0red the day after Christmas by some heartless bastard. No major damage, but since they may have been able to get all the stored FTP passwords I decided to go ahead and change mine. Since this also happens to be the password for my CIS account, I thought this would be a Good Thing. Needless to say, I don’t plan on storing my FTP password in Blogger anymore. Probably wasn’t too smart of me to begin with. Of course I’ve used the same password for that for so long that its probably going to be tough to make the switch mentally. Anyway, keeping the same password for 4 years probably isn’t the most secure thing in the world. I guess its probably best that I finally changed it. Changing passwords is never that big of a deal for me, since I use a pretty easy but (hopefully) secure system to pick them. I’ve got a memorized numerical prefix and suffix that I always affix to a character string, which is usually something easy to remember such as the initials for a long movie title or band name. For instance, And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead. &ltparanoia&gtAlthough I guess I won’t be using that one now…&lt/paranoia&gt
