Any explanation? A hack, or just something weird?


Haha, so it was true, then! Yeah, my twitter account got hacked it seems. Twitter caught it, which is pretty cool -- I just got an email this afternoon that there was suspicious activity and they locked my account. By the time I reset my password, they'd removed all the offending tweets. Wonder how they got the password. Who'd have guessed VeLoCiTyRAPtorRulzzz? Ah well.

Thanks for posting it here, glad to report it's been caught.

Was that actually your password? Because that one looks relatively safe...
Unless they used some sort of messed up word dictionary. Or took words from your tweets, which sounds more likely.
Either way, I'd change my password.

Try using https://howsecureismypassword.net/ to see if a password is good or not.

My usual password takes 11 minutes to crack, so that's reassuring. On the other hand, my e-mail one would take about 5 days to crack, so at least I got that.

VeLoCiTyRAPtorRulzzz takes 165 quadrillion years :D

I checked some of my passwords. They ranged from ~14 minutes (randomly generated/purposely insecure) to 27 quintillion (purposely "secure"). My TTG pass takes ~150 years, another site's 7 thousand, my email 2 billion.
A long time ago I told someone to pick a random phrase/password, they pulled one out accessible everywhere on the site it was used for, but supposedly takes a tresvigintillion years to crack.
A purposely very long random phrase from long ago: 204 octillion octogintillion years.

I may be obsessed with password security if 14 minutes is insecure and my email password takes 2 billion years :D

Haha, nah, I was just kidding with that password. This does make me think...

Step 1: set up website where people can check their 'hard' passwords
Step 2: Harvest them
Step 3: Use these passwords against them

(assuming you can figure out their email address... which I'm sure a hacker could manage in less than 12 quintillion years ;))

Reminds me of the ol' xkcd

Edit: totally not how I'm using these forums... totally...

Chances are their email address will be stored in a cookie somewhere, just need to find the cookie :D

What do you call the button in the top left corner of the GSim that gets rid of all the dust? The Dustruction Button.

Hehe, the hype train for KSP .24 appears to have exploded upon its release. JEB, MORE STRUTS!

Edit: Also imgur appears to have updated today as well.

Huh, you're right.

As for KSP, haven't been playing that in a while. I've just been playing a bit on a new release, but hopefully that'll change with career.
