As we are still in the grip of Covid-19, albeit with a hopeful glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel, the government is urging us to Stay Safe, Stay Alert.
During the past few weeks, here at Northumberland Computer Support, we have been mostly operating remotely, supporting clients not only in Northumberland, but across the UK in places such as Bristol, Middlesex and Norfolk.
We like to get about, even if it is only virtually!

We all seem to have too many passwords, (making them hard to remember), or too few, (making them more vulnerable). So, what's the answer when every website says we should have a different password, but we can't remember hundreds of them?
Adding to the problem is the desire to use "complex" passwords of at least 8 characters. A complex password is built up with at least 3 of the 4 elements of CAPITAL letters, lower-case letters, numb3rs and pun&tuat!on marks - such as pa55W0RD!
But, how can you easily create dozens, even hundreds, of such passwords, that are easy to remember, but not easy to guess?
