    And if anyone knows the registration number of the Vauxhall Victor I owned in 1972 then they can have my account.

    Well, if it was a 1972 model, I'd know it ends in K or L, that it's three letters, one, two or three numbers, then the K or L, none of the first three letters is a Z and there's an S, or there isn't an S, depending on whether the car came from Scotland or not. Even with the number/letter transformations, that's not that many combinations.

    If I used text speak, I'd write LOL, but I don't so I won't.

    But you did write it. 😉

    True, but I couldn't really write "If I used text speak, I'd write , but I don't so I won't", could I?

  • I have used PasswordSafe, Keepass and LastPass.

    I prefer PasswordSafe of the three but all are just fine.

  • My Lenovo laptop came bundled with something called VeriFace, which can substitute facial recognition for login password. It also appears to encrypt files and folders using using facial recognition. However, I've never used it.

  • That's true. IF it was a 1972 model. And I generally agree about the 6 digit alphanumeric sequence. But as I now live in Australia where AZZ000 is a valid rego no, I do have slightly more combinations. Like, about 0.02 seconds of brute force resistance.

    However, I only use the rego system for the less critical stuff like websites and my network login. It keeps the average dumbo out.

    And yes, the network login is less critical. I know how good/bad our network security really is. Our IT masters believe Microsoft have the best network security available.
