I think he's posting more now after lurking for a while.

How do people remember passwords that long?

I sometimes write them down and then lose the paper.

OK, nice day today. Have two mom days this week. Need to go out with Rusty.
Maybe.
Eventually.

But it won't help for the OK quakes--those aren't happening on fault lines. They're from injection wells in the area.




Injection may have triggered them, but you can't have quakes without faults. This explains OK's shaking.

Last year I started an excel spreadsheet with all my online accounts, the links, and passwords. I have that file passworded but both son & brother know that password. Having gone through ex's stuff and trying to figure out his affairs, I'm glad I started that list. Plus, I've had to refer to it a few times.

Thanks. I was looking for something like that. Figured there were faults in the area. I know about the New Madrid fault that goes through Missouri.

He's not female, but his "Bubba" persona is.
I've only been posting actively since I started following shirt.woot a few months ago.

Resistance is fertile.

dontwantaname wrote:How do people remember passwords that long?

I use about 4 base password seeds depending on strength required coupled with site specific modifier.

For example, a medium strength password for shirt.woot would be something like "Putinesca_W00tabix" (please don't attempt this as I just made it up for demonstration purposes)
but....for those sites that allow it, I'm moving to this model

Howdy! Leaving the west tomorrow at dawn. Just printed out boarding passes and saw that weather is forecast at 86 for the rest of the week in my area! I must say, however, that except for the cold at night, having the sun out for most of my time here has been really beautiful. Those fall colors - brings back many memories of living in New England. But, wow, that storm and all of those days without power up there - unprecedented. Read that the state and municipalities had been cost cutting by not triming around power lines as they used to. Figures.

Seattle weather for the rest of the week starting tomorrow:
rain, rain, partly cloudy, rain, partly cloudy
Temperature range: 40 (night) - 52 (day).

So, take the above to mean "light gray, with a chance of dark gray and a smaller chance of icy cold blue for an hour before the sun sets".

I'm just hanging out, really.

Sorry, should have said 'on active fault lines'. I know, there is a fault there, the injection is what's pushing them into a active state. These faults aren't ones that move like the ones in California, for example.

http://ontario-geofish.blogspot.com/2011/11/new-fracking-injection-well-starts.html And then read the other more recent posts, compares VA and OK.

I understand. My degree is in geology. Salt water injection wells have been used for decades to increase well-head production. And other experiments use injection methods in attempts to incrementally relieve stress in faults as opposed to larger more destructive releases.

Ooo, cool! Geology and hydrology fascinate me. One of the biologists I worked with in WY was a geologist for a while, I really loved going on field excursions with him as he'd talk about how the geology affected the habitat. Learned a lot.

The earthquake rumor mills are driving me nuts right now--hearing people say that these tremors are actually underground nuclear blasts, etc.

Not initally intended to fracture, but to increase pressure in the strata where the petroleum was located. In turn oil is forced out of pockets where natural pressures have diminished to a point where it is effectively trapped. Fracking artificially fractures the strata enhancing the injection process.

Even more so when they knock on your door.

Back in Canada I had a lot of friends who worked for Exxon. They would be waiting until you left your desk to go to the restroom, tap you on the shoulder, hand you your coat and two burly security guards would escort you to the gate. We called a tap on the shoulder "The Exxon Stress Test".
Not to be confussed with NYC CPR. Someone drops on the sidewalk you walk up to them and yell in their ear "GET UP YOU MO RON OR YOU'RE GONNA F***ING DIE!!!!"
