You've Dropped Your Landline — Now What?

prodangle Emergency lighting (635 comments)

How about hooking up some low-power emergency lighting around the house - even LEDs would be useful to let you find your way around. You could also tap into the mains ring, so if power drops a small set of lights could come on. You might even be able to neatly recess some small bulbs into your skirting, or lower down in the wall. I'm sure it would break the rules on any service plan with your landline provider, and may even be illegal, but if done well it would be very cool and also pretty useful.

MySpace Users Have Stronger Passwords Than Corporate Employees

prodangle Re:The Lesson? (263 comments)

This may not mean that "passwords are getting better." It may just prove once again that people care more about their personal things than other people's stuff.
Myspace users are likely to be younger, and although stereotypically they are not renowned for their spelling ability, they will be more technology aware than the average corporate user. Myspace users are comfortable with the internet and use it for leisure, whereas at work those who otherwise wouldn't mix well with technology are forced to cope.
