Be smart

A conversation I have with my kids often consists of me telling them to shut and lock doors.

“Why are you so picky about us locking the doors?”

“It reduces the likelihood that I’ll have to shoot someone”

Lock your damn doors.

    Locked doors keep honest people honest.

    Ok. So can you please lock your website too?

    Seriously! Take 10 minutes and go to letsencrypt and secure this site. Aside from hurting your search rankings, there is less than zero reason to have an unencrypted site.

    I have the same problem with my wife.

    When I moved into my present abode back in 2001, I realized there was absolutely no way to prevent a break-in by any knuckleheaded teen who picked up a rock from my landscaping and heaved it through a window.

    The house is on a quiet cul-de-sac on a street where 95% of the population works outside the home all day. This house, like all neighborhood houses, has big, big windows.

    Prevention of access being impossible, the next best thing was to decrease the likelihood of being chosen for a break-in. Barberry shrubberies, three yipping dogs that lived outside all day, motion sensor lights that come on day or night, visible security cameras, all seemed to help.

    And getting to know the neighbors, and the neighborhood kids, helped more. Good luck to those who like me know that locked doors will stop only a casual visitor, and that it takes more to stop a break-in.

    OtherSteve, I should have that done soon. There is a technical issue I have to resolve first.

    Good! This is one of two sites I use that is still shooting themselves in the foot by not locking their doors.

    I canít imagine on your end. Commenters donít have accounts so thatís fine, but you, if you log in as admin an any network, the wifi owner, cell tower, ISP, anyone in the middle, can see your admin password.

    So Iíd recommend changing the locks (roll your credentials) fairly often until you have a TLS connection.

    I always lock doors. I’m OCD about now ever since my cigarette-smoking sister stayed with us for a week. She left the front door unlocked one night and I only discovered it when I got up the next morning. I check the front and back doors at least three times now before bed each night.

    Having a kid it’s difficult to “lock all the doors”.
    So my compromise is “only having one unlocked at a time” when it’s daylight.
    And if I’m outside, it’s one I can see, thank you, not one on the opposite side of the house.

    Speaking of which, if the rain quits, I got to mow tonight after work, so that means one door in the front when I mow the front, and the back door when I’m in the back.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
