I guess it's better than waking up wearing nothing but a yeasty old codpiece.

Are you sure that's not just a phishing site? Now, that'd be ironic.

Well... I entered about a dozen bogus email addresses and each one came up with "Good News - no pwnage found."

OK, good test Megalodon. :thumbsup:

So, if you only have ONE hit, that would be Adobe, right?

It's a fine line between making your PW easy to remember and secure at the same time. I have a really easy system to remember, I select from one of 3 base passwords, add the first letter of the site to the PW, and a number based on the number of letters of the name of the site. So.. it's always different, but I always remember (at least on the third try..)

"..third try", LOL. I have a similar system,and it takes about the same number of attempts. :jester:

This is about compromised email addresses. It just so happens that the majority of the ones here are because of the breach at Adobe.
