Steam and Password Hell
New Steam Guard email with a Brazil IP address. Last password change was 10/23. Passwords are 20+ character random line noise and unique to Steam. Less than three months to crack is super concerning, and this is now happening regularly. So far as I can tell, Steam Guard is working for now and there's no intrusion beyond the password getting cracked, but ugh, still not great for the anxiety and paranoia.
Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
