Matching passwords logins and cards

tags: ,

In order to get the benefit of online services I have to maintain, over 30 different usernames including cash cards, and regularly renew the associated 30 passwords or PINs. This amazing feat would challenge the most well-practiced mnemonics experts.

When I relocated to the UK I took-on 3 new cash-cards. The good news is that I managed to memorize the 3 seemingly random card PIN numbers. The bad news is that I forgot to memorize which number went with which card. Luckily this enabled me to cycle through 2 mistakes before getting the right PIN, gradually I’ve learned the card-PIN relationship.

Phew, pint of beer to celebrate methinks.
