Paranoia

28 July 200812:54PMlife

So, having read 1984 and Little Brother on the same weekend, I suffered from a little bit of paranoia.

This consisted of me packing an emergency pack (in case the Thought Police or the DHS come to get me), looking up human rights sites, encrypting everything in sight, and changing my login password to something cryptic and unintelligible.

It is this last one that caused a problem, becuase seeing as I'd done said changing at about midnight, I promptly forgot the next day. This led to slight problems when I did my morning email check. I spend the rest of the day worrying about it, to the point of drawing up little diagrams of possible combinations (I had a rough idea of what characters were in it), and after slogging through around 30 passwords I finally got it.

I changed it right back to my old staple. So if you're out there Big Brother, my computer's got the same password as always. Help yourself to musty old school assignments. I don't really think you'll find anything interesting, but you never know.

That's about all. Rockwell.
