My solution to passwords AND security answers is simple but highly effective: I use a pattern to derive a password or answer from the name of the service or the security question itself.

A simple example for security questions might be “use the second letter of every word in the question”: So “where were you when you Read more

Sigh... My employer, in it’s infinitely questionable wisdom, has decreed that no password managers shall be in use on company-owned hardware. Until recently, that was the policy, but there was no enforcement. One of those things that, if you gave them the desire to dismiss you, they could use against you, but in Read more

Grits are good. If you like polenta, you will like grits. It is basically just porridge made from ground corn, and tastes exactly like you’d expect. If theirs were a greasy mess, it’s because they didn’t make them right.
The best part about grits is that more so than oatmeal or other porridge, they’re a good match Read more

I served an LDS mission in Buenos Aires from 2002-2004, so a lot of my knowledge is outdated. Thanks for taking the time to write so much detail. I need to visit again. Las Medialunas del Abuelo was always my favorite pastry stop.

Trump made it very clear all along that he is a bigoted monster. He made it clear when he launched his racist conspiracy theory that Obama was not a real American and thus an illegal, illegitimate president. He made it clear when kicked off his campaign by calling undocumented Mexicans “criminals and rapists”. He made Read more

This too. Lately the way I’ve been finding “new” music is to use whosampled.com to look up popular rap songs from the past 20 years and then listen to the artist who originally created the song’s hook. Read more

I work for a company that does business with others that are often PE owned. We HATE giving these companies money that doesn’t have explicit strings on it because we know that the PE firm is going to suck that money out instead of putting it toward actual business uses.

Well, you should investigate the procedures for government civilian and military travel, which are not exactly the same, but here’s how it used to work for civilian contractors on travel ultimately billed to DoD. The GAO periodically publishes a list of maximum lodging reimbursement and per diem rate based on Read more

He was using a scale to illustrate what you must have missed with the smaller sizes. $200 for 118GB is expensive. It’s also sacrificing versatility at that size. Anything under 256GB is really going to be limiting most people for an everyday device.
