I have an iMac next to me intended to be used for a port. I use it periodically to test code snippets and keep it up to date. I hate it. A few months ago, it told me to reboot to finish an update, but wouldn't let me reboot because an app was running. As far as I could tell, no app was running, so I pulled the plug. That worked. Did I say I hate my mac? (It's like someone put lipstick on a pig--parts of the UI are shiny, other parts are so incredibly clunky it's just plain weird. Then there's the horror of Finder. Amd what is it with that mammoth task bar? Who thought that was a good idea. Then there's XCode. Bottom line for me is that Apple designs gorgeous hardware and crappy software.)
In the news today it revealed that the most common password is now 123456. I am going to have to disagree. You see, in order to activate my Adobe license, I had to create an Adobe account. I don't use my Adobe account for anything; nor do I care about it in anyway; so yes, I chose 123456 merely so I could use the stupid software I bought.
After thinking about it, the breach probably isn't as bad as it seems since everyone else used 123456 too; indicating that they didn't want an Adobe Account either but were merely being forced to create one to Activate.
Sorry mate - if you're going to make a statement like that you also need to open a thread in the SoapBox and direct the endless, subjective, selective, armchair commentary (from both sides) to that forum where it has space to grow and prosper.
You're welcome to post a link to a discussion you start in the soapbox. I promise to be civil in explaining to you why I think you're mistaken. I am sure you'll see soon enough why such a discussion does not belong in the lounge.
No, of course not. But you'd hopefully understand that some people would see you as being 2 beers short of a six-pack for not anticipating them and acting accordingly.
Ha! That is, of course, the left wing, communist thinking of the nanny state. Why am I to be held responsible for other people's reactions? Are they children? Are they morons? No, only the people who think we have to be responsible for other people's thoughts and actions are morons. Hello, moron.
