I need to change my password

Because I like to use the same password of everything

— Atomic

Yeah, wow. Nothing can quite curdle your stomach like seeing someone else posting on your very own website. Even now, after changing every password I could think of, I still feel a bit gross and violated.

Blech.

Be ye not stupid. Change your passwords often and don’t use the same one over and over again.

So I’m babysitting Max, and I just told him about how my site was hacked and what that means.

“How did that happen?” He asked.
“They got my password,” I said.
“Did you give it to them?”
“No, they figured it out.”
Then he cocks his head to the side and makes a face. “Do you use the same password for everything?” He sounds incredulous.
“Yeah,” I said.
He shakes his head. “Not smart.”

    What were you doing up at 5:30 am? I was in bed nursing a hangover with Ibuprofin from 7 until 8:50 when I had to leap out of bed, be the tooth fairy for one of my kids, and get everyone up, washed, fed and at the soccer field by 9:00 (we were only 15 minutes late!)Or did you guys stay up all night?! I had a lot of fun (and a lot of wine).

    Thanks all. It could have been about a gazillion times worse. I kind of got off easy.
