    I'm always amazed how many of those systems allow you to change just one letter, usually just the case of just one, as if that doesn't undermine their intents.

    I just updated my location address through QRZ , how long will it take before I see it change also "Safe WEB" in my opinion is a scam from what I have been reading, and my new email is w5doh.allan@yahoo.com also I put a NOTE: in my QRZ page giving my new address Someone in IOWA should tell N5JVA about this message I have lost all information on contacting him.

    Back around 1995 the firm where I worked got hacked and their website was replaced with one about some guy who said he loved being ***** ** *** *** and posted a picture of himself (?) from a mall photo booth. Their password, however, was the word 'default', and was the one the web site came with. I don't make my passwords any tougher than I have to, otherwise I can't remember them, but I have never used 'default'. Some other sites on the same provider were hacked at the same time, and what they had in common was their passwords were either 'default' or '123', but then that was back in 1995.

    Pretty cutting edge, in 1995. :)

    Nothing at all wrong with writing down passwords.

    It becomes wrong when it's easy to attach that password note to the account it is the password for.

    I use a password manager app in my phone. I have over 300 passwords in there, all different, all strong. It syncs with my phone, my tablet and all my computers, even the Linux computers.
