I have a little book with all my different passwords to such sites recorded in it and I have it on one of my computer hutch shelves. Only you know about it so now I have to kill you....

Was that too creepy?

Depends on how you plan on doing it. Garden hoe?
Scythe?
Meat slicing machine set on auto?

Ooh... sliced to death (would that be thin or shaved?).. that is creepy! As the world tries to get more secure, I find each site making different requirements of me.. so now I have so many different passwords I really have trouble tracking them. Maybe I need a book in Greeny's hutch, then I can ask her when I forget? ;-)

Gross you guys ;-)

What happens to all the accounts (perhaps illicit ones especially) that go unused when the owner dies and no one knows the passwords? Is there a cyber-graveyard, or is there a cremation option? do they just add congestion on the information super highway?

Bwahahaha!

Of course, I pretty much have one password I use for everything. I know that's very bad and wrong and all that but seriously, I have too many online accounts and too little time. Girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

A perfect illustration of how our lives are held ransom by passwords.
