Applying Pavlovian Psychology to Password Management

Aurien Still waiting for a realistic solution (288 comments)

According to "security experts" a human being is supposed to remember 100+ unique passwords with no English dictionary words that's rotated every x days and absolutely never ever make a password list. I'd like to meet and test the "security expert" who lives by this rule, because for the vast majority of human beings, this isn't possible. So maybe they should try to figure out a realistic solution. Solutions like this will only cause more centralized password lists which really defeats the purpose of these hard to crack passwords, if one password gets them all.

Ask Slashdot: Good Satellite Internet For Remote Locations?

Aurien GlobecommSystems (175 comments)

This is the company I work for and we provide global satellite access. Honestly you'd have to talk to our sales department for prices, but we do have coverage in South America and Alaska. We're a NASDAQ traded company that's been in the satellite business for a while.

GM, NHTSA Delayed Volt Warnings To Prop Up Sales

Aurien Highly Suspect Article (344 comments)

I'd take what that article says with a grain of salt. Some BBC UK writers have made up stuff before to put Obama and his administration in a bad light. They have no source for the claim that the NHTSA knew about the defect for 5 months and withheld that information. Joan Claybrook was head of the NHSTA from 1977 to 1981. So not exactly someone who knows details of a current NHSTA investigations. They link to a autoguide article that mentions the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety having an incident on the 2nd test, but they're not a government agency and don't report to government agencies. Lots of leaps being made with no evidence to back it up.

Witcher 2 Torrents Could Net You a Fine

Aurien GOG not the only place to get The Witcher 2 (724 comments)

You can also get it on Steam and D2D also with the 10% pre-order discount. The big deal about GOG having it was that it's the first time they've had a brand new game available first day in their store. Although CD Projekt owning GOG helped that. http://store.steampowered.com/app/20920/ http://www.direct2drive.com/10030/product/Buy-The-Witcher-2:-Assassins-of-Kings-Digital-Premium-Download
