Top Tip

Recommended Posts

When aquiring a new pet dog, cat, budgie, etc., give it a name with mixed upper and lower case and numeric characters, so you will have extra security when you use it's name as a password.

Don't make it too complicated, so you will be able to remember it, even long after the pet is dead.

For extra security, have the animal put down each year and replace it with a new pet & password.

The same rules can also be applied to children.

This is a stupid tip.

You should set all your passwords to 123password for huge security. The reason behind this is that anyone trying to crack passwords would not think that anyone would be stupid enough to use this as a password.

It is the classic double bluff, and easy to remember too.

Yep. That's why all my bank cards' pins are 1234 and my wifi password is buffy.

It's not an entirely daft idea. There's a school of thought that complicated hard to remember but short passwords are counter productive against brute force attacks.

If, however, you think of your cat in descriptive terms as "darkoverlordwhocravesrodentsandiscalledbob" and then use that as your password - it's more memorable and quite difficult to crack.

Bob! Bob? That's not a girl's name!

On second thoughts, it may be simpler just to have the animal put down ech year, but keep the same name, for the new one, to make it easier to remember.

Another Tip:

Never tell anyone your pets name.

In particular , never tell your pet it's name.

It my sell it to identity thieves, or be kidnapped and reveal it under torture. Especially if it is a parrot.

I use: hailthetripodisasexgod to make it memorable for the wife.

Not a good idea. How will you decide when asked the name of your favourite pet.

No problem. I'd remember the name, it will always be the same, but probably forget the pet.

One labrador looks much like any other. Same with bees (never believe a beekeper who claims to have names for all his bees, they are clearly demented)..

Another top tip for people with spiders as pets:

Give your spiders the nailbiting experience of a real life indiana Jones adventure by tipping them down a cardboard tube whilst slowly closing the lower end with a playing card. For added excitement roll a Ferrero rocher down the tube and have a friend insert cocktail sticks through the side at regular intervals.
