New York City meets Munich

I am leaving this post as it was written, so I am forever shamed. I am now writing on the blackboard “I will not post wise-ass things to my blog at a late hour after consuming alcohol” a 1000 times. Yeah, it was the booze talking, that’s it. For a larger, more detailed, and more crow-ingesting apology, peek in the still smoldering Blogvoice discussion.

The customer is always wrong

This appeared in Clan Lord recently in the news:

If you use the same password here as on another online game or website, we recommend you change it. Some people have been burned. Today is a good day to improve your online security.

Remember, today is a good day to improve your online security. It’s up to you.

Meanwhile, every time you log in to the Clan Lord web site, your master account password is sent down the wire as readable text. And if you’ve got DSL or a cable modem, you are sharing your network with quite a few other people…

So if today is a good to day to improve online security, bitch to Delta Tao that they need to clean up their act with the web site, because blaming customers will only take you so far if you don’t have your own house in order.
