A lot of computer security wastes a huge amount of time and isn’t worth it

Have you ever wondered, as I have, when trying to get around the “password not recognized” messages from some innocuous web site, how much time people spend simply trying to get something done with their computer but are messed up because they’re locked out by some snafu? Answer: a lot! An article says that all the messing around with passwords that is forced on us costs us a lot of wasted time while not really protecting things of value. As an old friend of mine from Mississippi used to say, “The juice ain’t worth the squeezin”.” http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/ideas/articles/2010/04/11/please_do_not_change_your_password/?page=1
