Password HELL, or the story of logon stress...

Information overload, this does not compute, system is shutting down (logic system). Do you ever get the feeling that your mind is doing overtime trying to keep track of all the logon data? I do! It is uncanny, the number of logons we need to memorise and/or safely stash away. I used to have a strategy. Now, it seems like I running up a hill that never stops. A hill growing because of all the extra logons I need and use. For work alone I use over ten different logons. In private (Dusty Springfield) I have to use even more. Any single sign-in offered to my by social media, I accept eagerly. I have to otherwise password hell will get the better of me. But the number of single sign-ons does not compare to the steady growth of new logon data. What we need is one online personal presence with which we can logon to ievery platform that needs authentication for security reasons. Wouldn't that be heaven? Just login once to enter any which online
platform.... Alas, that idea is far from reality....and, frankly, the reason vor all this shielding and yielding is 'la condition humaine'.... We just can't keep from sticking our (criminal) noses into other people's business. From that perspective logons are the punishment we deserve....
The other day I was offered a perfect solution to my logon stress: A PASSWORD COURIER. HOORAH, I though, having the satanic data in just one interactive file....the only trouble was, I had to logon to the password courier....the horror, the horror....
