16 characters, no repeats in a row, and a space?!

conversely, amex just told me my password wasn't accepted because it had a symbol and it needs to not have a symbol.

my BMI songwriter account requires the most security of anything i have, yet my credit card wants it weaker :rofl:

any objections to this build? its for music production. already have a relatively new superflower psu i can use, which is why it doesn't list one
i was debating getting one of those bequiet ones instead but i heard they weren't actually all that quiet :o

Personally I'd do a 13700K instead, it's basically an updated 12900K and cheaper.
For memory I'd go with this:
or this if you want RGB:

I have a friend who is a software engineer, and he has been trying to tell me that passwords like


Are just as good as strong google passwords lmao

I think he's trolling me, I just don't know enough to counter the assertion :hsugh:
Youre friend is right. Password complexity of random numbers and characters are less secure

heaven's fence.
when i worked at tesla my password was a phrase (series of words separated w/ a space)
seeing as they don't require a symbol or capital letter etc, they probably expect you to do something like that here.
"i enjoy eating bacon"
actually better way of making passwords when u think about it

"elon musk has a refrigerator body"

how much are you spending per month to get that much back?
My monthly spend probably averages 1.5-2.5k a month but whenever we have a bigger purchase to make, I’ll usually coordinate signing up for a new credit card.

Between normal spend, sign up bonuses, and work trips, we do OK. At the peak of credit card churning, I had close to a million points across several airlines/hotels.

damn, that's fascinating... with the exception of the past couple months I spend a lot less than that so I'll continue not accidentally going down that rabbit hole :mamoru:

Pull 2 sticks and run again, it's most likely 1 stick causing it...
Yup. Pretty sure it’s the third stick given the memory ranges but I’m not sure if the system identifies left->right or channel a 1->2 -> channel b 1->2.

It was too late for me to think straight by the time I finished running the final checks to science it out so I’ll deal with it today :o
