Seriously RapidSSLOnline....

RapidSSLOnline sends out HTML formatted emails for certificate renewal containing a direct SSL login link to your account, for easy renewal (or change/delete) of SSL certificates.

Hmm.. And I actually thought that sending out direct login links by clear-text e-mail was a bad idea....


Important update: my link + title initially pointed at, while the correct should be Big thx to Tom Willows for correcting me!

Bring CRM - og Thon Hotels

Jeg er medlem i fordelsprogrammet til Thon Hotels, på linje med flere andre hotellkjeder. Mulighetene for en "gratis" overnatting er fristende nok. Regelmessig har jeg mottatt min bonusoversikt på epost, sammen med diverse tilbud for å få meg til å bruke både poeng og penger.

Quick look: PIXELPIN

A quick look at:

PixelPin says on their front page:

"Passwords are inherently flawed: they can be phished, hacked, dictionary attacked, and good ones are hard to remember. PixelPin solves all of these problems."
You really can't waive a bigger piece of red cloth in front of my eyes, so I had to take a quick look at what they have to offer. I like the idea of picture passwords, but I'm not all that happy about my observations here.
