WOODEN computer chips reveal humanity's cyber elf future

Bought a wooden computer...

but it wooden work.

Password manager LastPass goes titsup: Users locked out

Stop

... but why not back up those LastPass beauties

Might be worth noting that you can keep your LastPass encrypted data locally as a back up.

Also worth remembering that you can then use that backup to access your password data without being online. So next time LP's servers need a tea break, you'll still be able to log in to stuff.

Do a search for "offline-access-to-your-lastpass-vault" to get the details.

Naturally I haven't got round to doing any of this myself and would have been mightily stuffed had the outage affected me. Nor have I kept a secured copy of my master password; if I get concussed & forget it; still stuffed.

Life on the edge.

Bugger the jetpack, where's my 21st-century Psion?

Re: Drifting OT ... one thing I recall

Reminds me that even in late 1990s I used to see a TV sketch-show* writer pacing up and down outside the studio, typing merrily, without looking at his MicroWriter/AgendA device. I watched him enviously, while squinting to type on my beloved Psion 5. Still have it, long defunct though/

*Probably the C4 show 'Rory Bremner, Who Else?'

Thumb Up

I'm on it...

I'm turning our house into a nuclear power station immediately. I shall operate it from my chair by the TV.

"Operating nuclear power stations is not just very safe... It has to be one of the safest forms of activity undertaken by the human race"
