I went to log into an internet place for work that I rarely log into because I only need to log into said place on a quarterly basis. However, this place deems themselves important enough to have you reset your password on a more frequent interval then quarterly; even if you only use it on a quarterly basis.

Once again, I must request a password reset and wait until they send me an email. It's happened enough I don't even bother resetting the temporary password anymore. I use it, log in, and wait until the next quarter comes around to get another temp password.

Most secure web login ever.

Remember when I was complaining about getting profiled at Home Depot?

I had to go there again today, looking for a vent cleaning kit and some root killer, and I couldn't find either one where I expected them to be. But then an employee asked if he could help, so I told him what I was looking for, he wasn't sure what they were, so I explained, and he told me some place on the total opposite side of the store.

Which sucked, because my feet are fucking killing me and it's a bigassed store.

But I went over there, and the guy had sent me to the household cleaning aisle.

Don't understand what I'm talking about? OH, IT'S PROBABLY SOME KIND OF MOP.

I thought you;d be able to crack together your own rootkit killer. But what would a Linuxer like you need such a thing? Neverminding the silliness of looking for computer stuff at a home improvement store.

I'm watching a documentary on History Channel tube and they have Russians talking. But when they do the voice-over, it's English with a fake exaggerated accent. Why? What's the point? This is so completely retarded that I cannot imagine what they want to achieve.

"OK, it's distracting and you can't understand what they are saying quite as well, but we have to remind you that these people talk funny".

One of those dumbasses who uses my email address signed up for Credit Karma the other day, and they would not stop sending me nag emails, so I found the first email, which had a link to click if it's not your account. But that link just takes you to this page (with a user ID that I edited out, but it's the same page).

So from there, you have to select the option to cancel your account, which brings up a new menu that includes the option "I started receiving emails from Credit Karma and I have never visited the Credit Karma site."

Scroll down. You cannot select that option without providing your name and birthdate. The "I've never visited your site" option.

So my name was NA NA and my birthdate 00/00/0000, and I STILL had to go through THREE FUCKING ROUNDS with their fucking shit customer support demanding my name and birthdate in order to get them to stop fucking spamming me. Of course, I didn't give it to them, but then again, I don't even know that I'm actually off their spam list.

BTW, it's entirely possible I know the full name and birthdate of the person who tried to sign up, so that's some ass security they've got there, too.

So yeah, don't use Credit Karma. They're a sketchy company to begin with, but they're also completely incompetent.
