The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen.
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
You mean that if it was a company you considered registrering an account with because you needed their products and/or services, you'd refrain from doing so because of this?
Permit me to doubt that...
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. Mark Twain
Well that largely depends on what their products or services are exactly. Can I get them elsewhere, can I get them without registering an account (e.g. a phone order)...
And yes, if I thought a company had poor security implementations, then I would consider not using them... IF there are other options. Or maybe, because I know they are insecure, I could use a random generated password and then close the account when I have got what I need.
How can you be sure they are saving them in plain text? And is this a password you entered yourself, or auto-generated?
It was the password I entered, I use a password manager to generate random passwords.
Although, I do agree it's wrong if they can get your plain-text password on demand.
If they got their database hacked the hackers would have access to passwords and logins, many of which would have been reused across other sites too. So the hackers could access bank account, amazon accounts etc.
Also, why not name and shame? At least we can try to avoid them then.
and make it even more public to hackers that they store passwords in plain text, I don't think that would be sensible. "Hey look everyone, if you try and hack company X's site you can get hold of my password as well as thousands of other logins and passwords" I'd be willing to bet that the Web API has a service that returns the user logins and passwords in plain text.

Another soundtrack, but with (Japanese) lyrics this time.
The Secret Life of Arrietty is a more recent Studio Ghibli movie (2011, so no Miyazaki).
The English version is dubbed by Tom Holland, better known as Spider-Man (but I watch subs, not dubs).
This is probably the first Ghibli I've seen where Joe Hishaishi wasn't the music composer.
However, Cécile Corbel wrote an awesome soundtrack and perhaps it's even my favorite Ghibli soundtrack to date.
It has a bit of a Celtic vibe to it and there are quite a few lyrics that I don't understand.
I watched the movie, got the soundtrack and then played it on repeat
I am not dyslexic, but I have been watching the OpenDyslexic project for a while now. After their latest release, I have converted my PC to use the font by default. I am finding it so easy to read. I can even read most of my screen when I misplace my reading glasses.
I am now in the process of converting all of my code to default to or recommend downloading the font.
OpenDyslexic ... Its not just for dyslexics anymore.
*Money makes the world go round ... but documentation moves the money.*
I'm not dyslexic, and I do not find the font easy to read. Yet I will easily believe claims that for some kinds of dyslexia, this font is a good one.
One reason for me to say this: I had a daughter with a strong visual handicap, so she was a braille reader. His teacher decided that the entire class should learn a little braille, so they had my daugther print out some braille hardcopy that the others could read, looking up the dot patterns one by one in the braille alphabet. One of the boys was suffering from severe dyslexia, and had had large problems learning ordinary blackprint reading - but this little fellow read learned the braille right away, and soon could read the texts without checking the alphabet. He actually learned to read braille faster than he could read letter text. This was when they were seven, maybe eight, so they were not fast readers, any of them. (And this was a Waldorf School, or Steiner School as we call them, where they certainly do not push reading at a very low age. Other things are more important when you are five or six.)
When a small kid with strong dyslexia learns to read braille without any problem, then it makes sense that a different, but character-like, typeface can have a simlar effect.
Hmmm, interesting, like comic sans, I would be interested to hear what a genuine strong dyslexic opinion of it. I am guessing it's the difference in the font that makes it easy to read when contrasted against a standard...
