Today I bring you a public service announcement: use a password manager so you can use secure complicated passwords, and not have to worry about remembering them all.
I just read an article about “security fatigue,” defined as a hopeless, overwhelmed feeling when confronted with all the data breaches in the news.
See ya on the Net,

Boo! It’s time for all things creepy and spooky. Are you ready for Halloween? This week’s picks of clever do-it-together craft projects are sure to get you in the Halloween spirit.
All Kids Network: Halloween Crafts for Kids
“These Halloween crafts for kids will appeal to kids of all ages and, as always, we have made every one of them in our own home to ensure that they are child friendly and fun! We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!” I liked this craft collection because they all seemed quite doable. For example, the Floating Ghost is made from an old t-shirt and Elmer’s Glue, and has just a few steps.
Art Projects for Kids: Halloween
This collection of Halloween art projects goes beyond “crafting” to include painting, drawing and other arts. Some that caught my eye include Cubism Costume (drawn with pastels Picasso-style on a brown paper grocery bag), and the Symmetrical Pumpkin (cut out from black and orange construction paper).
