754 DrMussintouchit When working for a huge grocery store chain I had access to the computers to change prices and add product. My login was 2222/2222. They gave me more rights and moved me to 3333/3333. So one night I got to thinking and tried 9999/9999. Yup, I got access to everything you could ever imagine a grocery store had on a network.

36 Derperlicious a neighbor who is a professor, told me the other day that he has the best password on his laptop.. nothing. You just hit enter. I know a lot of folks do this, but he was excited, because he felt he 'discovered' a way to be sneaky. See a theif would try every password out there.. might even brute force it, but he would never guess no password. I get tired of talking to him as i sigh soooo many times.
