I just came up with the most *AWESOME* password. And it's frustrating that I can't share with you all how totally f***ing clever it is, because if I did, then everyone would know my password.

Remind me to share it the next time I change it.

Ig, how often do you change your passwords?

Is your password "derosnecnu"?

Ls, OMG! That's exactly the secret code I have on my luggage!

I only change a password if I have reason to believe it's been breached. In this case however it's a password for an administrative account on a project that will be shared with a few other people.

And now I've got to go change the combination on my luggage.

If I have a password on something that I plan to share with people, I make it P4ssw0rd

That'll give you unbridled access to the gmail accounts I use for junk mail, and maybe also to some newspaper accounts where you need to register but you don't need to buy anything :)

Protactinium, Sulfur, Sulfur, Tungsten, Oxygen, Rubidium.

Well, okay, Rubidium is just getting sloppy.

"You can't use that password. It looks simple enough that you might remember it without writing it down."

correct horse battery staple.

(Wrote this on FB, and thought I should really share it here... this
comes on the heels of a tough few couple of hours of class today).

I fail a lot... but I try to do it under controlled circumstances, so I
don't seem like the loser I often feel I am.

This is why I try to write test code for the libraries I make in C++,
and take improv classes.

The test code should catch failures before customers get exposed to
them, so I seem like I'm more amazing than I really am.

The improv classes allow me to make comedy-killing decisions in front of
other classmates rather than a real audience, so that I can learn better
choices to make on stage when we do have an audience, and make me look
like I'm a damned good improviser, even though I haven't done this stuff
for a year yet.

At least that's the theory.

Here's the big question, though: when have I finished testing and
screwing up in
front of classmates? At what point do you release the
code into the wild, and stand in front of a crowd of strangers to try
and make them laugh?

For the code, it's the date when the salesman promised the customer the
product or solution.

For the class, it's about a couple more weeks, when we do our graduating

In both cases, that time is decided for me. Which, maybe, is good...
because otherwise, I fear I would live in 'test' mode and never actually
step into the dangerous places where real life takes place.

Finally, a good old fashioned power outage at my house! This is the first

time the power has gone out since we got the generator. I wasn't home, but

Wesley connected the cables, started the diesel engine, and threw the transfer

switch. Good job dude!

You're not alone, fleeb.  In fact, I think that's probably the case for most people.  Risk is risk precisely because it's scary.  But the brave man is the one who finds a way to do it anyway. 

Whether that's by putting yourself in a situation that forces you into a deadline or you choose your own, In my opinion, it's bravery nonetheless.  :-)

I think this year's lesson, for me, is that there is power in choosing my own deadlines.

There is, imho - and even more in holding to them.  Good for you, fleeb.

Wow, Wesley is so grown up. But I saw him there helping you in the "how to legally and safely get a generator working" video, so I guess he should know what he's doing. He's like a young profressional. Very impressive.

Fleeb, it was smart of you to start with a test mode, and when to go to the real world with things is ALL a matter of self confidence. You know people out there who aren't great with what they do and others who are still hiding their talents who are quite good. People don't go public with their talents
objectively. I mean, it's about perception, not actuality. If you BELIEVE in yourself then you go.
Unless, like you said, you're forced out. Which isn't always a bad thing.
