“Don’t write down you passwords” my ass, I have like 1000 of them and they’re scattered all over my desk and under folders and coffee cups, you want to hack this bitch??? It’s gonna be like a game of fucking MYST

@RobinHood well that'll make it easier!

Cuz only three or four will end up being clickable and one of THOSE will eventually let me in.

@RobinHood Now, if you scattered your logins all around an island, THEN i'll be in trouble.

@clarjon1 @RobinHood Its better to use a password manager to store all your passwords in an encrypted database... and then tar it into small files, separate them onto a hundred thumbdrives, and scatter those all around the island.

I'd recommend keepass, gnu tar, and a wrist rocket.

be found in the nook between the waterfall with the red wiring and the little rock needing the left-curled wire to scrape it loose.

FINAL PUZZLE

Now that you have assembled all the USB drives, head back into the computer we started the game at. Insert the drives into the computer (drag and drop, they auto group so it's just one drag) and then flip over the keyboard and type in the RNG letters found on it to win!

@clarjon1 @unlofl @RobinHood speedrun strat: manually type in the binary code for the password manager. Don't forget to grab the page on the way over though

@RobinHood I just laughed so loud I'm pretty sure my neighbors are wondering wtf

@c0debabe @RobinHood I've done similar in the past; as an added challenge to some accounts, I *permute* previously written passwords. I guess that would make it a game of RIVEN then?

@c0debabe @RobinHood FWIW, those accounts still exist, and are reaching over 30 years old, with no sign of successful exploitation.

Maybe I'm just lucky, but long live 16+ character fully random passwords. ;)

@RobinHood Look, if you can make it past the father's Old White Man fortifications, the faithful guard hound, and the many perils of entering our inner sanctum, you will have earned the treasures within and be worthy of gazing upon one or two of our passwords I need to ensure we won't lose. But at what cost?

@RobinHood make 1000 decOy passwOrds and hide them arOund the hOuse sO the hackers exhaust all Of their passwOrd attempts because nOne Of them are real

@RobinHood a hacker breaks into your office, goes to the pc, finds one of the easy to find post-its, smirks, types it in, the pc doesn't log in, but instead autoplays a video of you dressed as Richard O'Brien from the Crystal Maze "YOU HAVE TEN MINUTES, AUTOMATIC LOCKIN, THE CLOCK STARTS NOW", then you play a flute randomly and a clock shows up on the screen, as lights come on, revealing the HUNDREDS of -VISIBLE- post-it notes :3

@RobinHood I want you to know that this is one of my favourite posts on this website, in part due to merely mentioning myst

@RobinHood
*Picks up a red post-it*
"Ah ha sucker, got one.. oh, look, another one"
*Picks up second, blue post-it*
*Red post-it vanishes permanently*
"Ah shit"
