It wouldn’t work though, there is just too much grit in the show and the source material. Although, if animated we would have much more dragon time in the series, and more dragon-time is never a bad thing.

Well that is a sticky wicket if I’ve heard of one. :)  I’ll post the answer video as well, but see if you know before you watch the second part (No peeking!).

And the spoiler…

Don't let someone who

Don’t let someone who “leet speaks” onto your computer. Ever.

I’m such a non-fan of passwords.  Keeping track of all that shite is tedious.  So here I am doing my best when along comes the CBC to make life even more difficult.

“If your password is on the list below you had better change it.

Among the 25 most common passwords among 3.3 million that were leaked online last year, the top two were once again “123456” and “password,” according to a company that provides password management software.”

Based on its analysis, SplashData recommends that when crafting your password:

  • Don’t use keyboard patterns e.g. “qwertyuiop” from the top row of letters
  • Don’t use a favourite sport – baseball and football were both in the Top 10, with hockey, soccer and golf in the Top 100.
  • Don’t use your birthday or birth year. People in their early 20s seemed to be especially guilty of this, with the years 1989 to 1992 all in the top 100.
  • Don’t use common names – michael, jennifer, thomas, jordan, hunter, michelle, charlie, andrew and daniel were all in the Top 50.

Here’s the entire list:

  1. 123456

  2. password

  3. 12345

  4. 12345678

  5. qwerty

  6. 1234567890

  7. 1234 

  8. baseball

  9. dragon 

  10. football

  11. 1234567 

  12. monkey 

  13. letmein 

  14. abc123 

  15. 111111 

  16. mustang

  17. access 

  18. shadow

  19. master 

  20. michael

  21. superman 

  22. 696969 

  23. 123123 

  24. batman 

  25. trustno1

So there you go, now out and make yourself and your accounts more secure and less accessible to yourself. You are welcome.

Another great strip from Tatsusya Ishida.

Most of my readers will be shocked by the glaring inaccuracies in Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus.  Could it be that yet another part of the bible just isn’t accurate?

We’ve look at Beethoven’s 6th before here on a Interlude Friday, but I wanted to highlight what I think is the section of the symphony that is most likely to get me killed while driving.  The last two parts in particular.

4. Thunderstorm, Storm: Allegro
5. Shepherds’ song; cheerful and thankful feelings after the storm: Allegretto

The storm in the 6th symphony builds from the violas outward, each new instrumental addition bringing more stress to the musical line ending in a shattering musical climax that simply begs to be air -conducted.  Try it, when you hear the timpani and brass swing the energy back and forth with the strings rising to meet them.  It’s awesome.  If you can make it to the Shepard’s song without incident you are golden.

All of this going on is not conducive to safe driving, so be warned. :)

 

Next week – Mozart’s Requiem and the parts that endanger my safe driving record.

Oh yaaaaa!!!
