Passwords and Technology

I've talked often about keys and locks...but not so much about passwords. Passwords are simply codes of words, characters, numbers, shapes or colors presented in the right order at the right time to gain access to a new location or gain new information. At least, that's my quick definition...

In my viewpoint, passwords are primarily meant to protect something. Only those who are "in the know" may gain access to the valuables. One example is in Legend of the Crystal Skull, where, as Bess, you must provide the password in the right outfit to gain access to a secret group of people, seen here:


Bess had to know several things: What to dress up as, where the location was, what group she was trying to gain access to, when to meet, and most importantly: know the password.

Technology today requires passwords to protect your information, and are also used to protect valuable items. Our store has the ability to save customer's information so it's quick and easy to make another purchase without filling everything out all over again. This information is password protected, and only the company and you know the password. It's protected, just like a safe that you provide the secret combination.

Speaking of passwords and codes...we are celebrating the kickoff of Bavaria's Oktoberfest by offering The Captive Curse on sale for 50% off (digital only) until the end of October 1st, 2012. You must use the password code BAVARIA12 to gain access to this awesome deal. If you don't have this German-themed game, I would highly recommend it, it's high on my list of favorite games!

Also, Happy 21st Birthday Mike!

I have a really weird feeling that Ryan might be the murderer because she reminds me of Corine. I noticed that when I saw the trailer.
