I'm gonna change my password everywhere today.  What's your tactic... do you change as you log in to each and every site over a period of time, or do you proactively try to track them all down and change them?  I haven't done this in a while... I usually just start changing it for future sites, leaving a trail of old passwords on sites that serve as a historical record of when I joined them.

So, basically, if you know my password and have been reading my private entries and email for a while, now's your last chance to  do something truly evil!

I have to do this. I'm using the same password I came up with in the mid 90s. I feel bad but I don't know how to go about fixing it!

awhile back when my password got stolen & a malicious 125gb external harddrive was "bought" off ebay by way of paypal for something like $1500, i had to change my password.

i usually keep a word document with all the various websites that are pretty standard & require passwords. just the sites, so i can go back & change them all at once, in one fell swoop.

anything that isn't as relevant or important or financial to login to pandora or cdbaby, i generally change those over time, because i figure nobody will fuck with me there.

that said, it's a good idea to keep at least two-three separate passwords, depending on the severity of what happens should one of them be compromised.

that all being said, i've still got passwords floating out there from like 8 years ago on some sites.
