1.) No, I will not be your friend.
2.) I locked your thread because it was stupid, not because I hate you on some kind of personal level.
3.) I read every message and comment I get, but that doesn't mean I respond to all of them.

Password SecurityWith the recent revelation of Heartbleed, I'm taking the opportunity to finally enact really solid password practices: not only using strong passwords, but ensuring that they're unique across all accounts.

In case anybody else is interested in doing the same, here are the tools I'm using:

Password Gorilla: A password management program available for Windows, MacOS, and Linux. Allows you to create databases of your passwords that are compatible with Password Safe (which means the DB files are compatible with some other password management programs). The program can generate unique, strong passwords for the logins stored in it. Because each DB is locked with a master password, you only have to remember one to access the rest.

PasswdSafe: An Android port of the original Password Safe program. I plan to use this so that I can access my accounts while away from my computer (at work, on the phone itself, etc.).

PasswdSafe Sync: Optional companion app that syncs the password databases on your phone via your choice of cloud applications.

Setting up the original database is going to be a pain in the ass, since I have accounts all over the goddamn internet, but once it's done, I'm going to be a lot more comfortable, knowing that the loss of a single password will never put my other accounts at risk.
