What Are The Odds?


Ever wondered what the odds of injury from using a chainsaw were? Or the odds of you dating a supermodel?

How Strong Is Your Password?


If you’re like me then you have 7 or 8 different passwords that you have to remember on a daily basis. Some passwords are weak and some are strong. Generally speaking, passwords should have a mixture of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols to be really strong. However if the letters spell out a word or a name, or the numbers are sequential then things like that serve to weaken your passwords.

Some passwords can easily be guessed – especially if you actually know the person the password belongs to, and, if not then there are such things as dictionary attacks or brute force attacks which try different combinations of characters at the speed of the hacker’s computer.

This page tests the strength of your passwords, gives you a strength percentage figure and allows you to see the weaknesses present in your passwords. Awesome!
