Simplify Your Passwords

Steve Endow from Dynamics GP Land brought this comic from XKCD.com to my notice a few months back and I have been meaning to re-post it for a while. I think that this comic/cartoon highlights that most computer users are creating "strong" passwords (ie. at least 8 characters with 3 out of uppercase, lowercase, numeric & symbols) that are hard for humans to remember and fairly easy for computers to crack.  It suggests using a pass phrase of random words that have a meaning to you instead.

Microsoft Dynamics GP in Hollywood?

Francisco Hillyer posted at article on the Rose Business Solutions Dynamics GP blog, where he noticed Microsoft Dynamics GP being used in a movie. See the screenshot below:


Notice that this is an alternate window from Bill Marshall's MC2

For the details of which movie, you will have to have a read of Francisco's post: Microsoft Dynamics GP in Hollywood?

 

I have known that this was coming for a little while, but now it is public. Jivtesh Singh MVP and his wife Rubal have recently moved to my home town of Perth, Western Australia.

See Jivtesh's post: Down Under

 

Enjoy
