Single Status Update
This morning I awoke to find that all of my gmail accounts had had their passwords and recovery emails changed. I scrambled to regain control of my remaining address and other credentials. I've been able to recover one email address but the others are still MIA.
For you gmail users: this is a bitch
My email address was being used as a Nigerian prince style scam with my actual name on it, I don't know how many people have received the email but my broker called me this morning to make sure everything was alright.

Right now for the first time in a long while I'm using pen and paper.
I need to start doing that again. Right now I'm only using variations on two passwords for everything because that's all I can remember. Back in the day I wrote everything down on a sheet of paper I kept in my desk, and probably used at least a half dozen more passwords and their variations.

This is me. That being said they are alphanumeric with capitals, not dictionary words either. I think I'm pretty safe but I do go through them all and change a letter to a number or vice versa every few years.
