While listening Security Now the other week I heard them talking about PayPal offering two factor authentication via a little key dongle you could buy for $5. This little dongle displays a random 6 digit number every 30 sec, which you can hook in with PayPal and Ebay. I thought this was a great idea so off I went to spend my $5. I received the dongle yesterday. It’s pretty small about 2in. x 1in. and hooking it into my account was easier than registering for a new email address. Now when I go to log in I type my user name and password, then after my password I type in the 6 digit number on the dongle. Works great.
The best thing about the Security Key is that fact that it uses Verisign’s Identity Protection service. Which means any site could possible use the same service, meaning this dongle can work on those sites also. In any case, you know how I like the idea of OpenID. Well Verisign has added the ability to use this dongle to there OpenID server. So now not only can I have two factor authentication on PayPal and Ebay, but also on any site using OpenID. Woot!!

Last night Kim and I went to see Ghost Rider. She loved the movie. I myself wanted to walk out a half hour after it started. The story wasn’t explained very well, and Nichols Cage was just not the man for that movie. But I guess it wasn’t so bad, since I did get to spend time with Kim.
Apparently once you leave Huntsville there are still cops out on the road. Last night on my way home, I was pulled over. The officer said I was doing 76mph in a 50mph zone. So I acted stupid like I didn’t know it was a 50 zone, and thought it was a 65mph area. Then the cop made a good point. He said “I don’t believe the speed limit is 76 anyway.” Which I responded “yes sir you make a good point.” Anyway he let me go without a ticket and told me to slow down and be careful. After that it was a long drive home at exactly 65mph.
As many of you know, I listen to Penn Jillette’s radio show every day. Well as of today he has officially called it quits. There will be no more Penn Radio on FreeFm. He did make mention of a return but who knows when that will be. My morning drive will not be the same. Oh well, off to a different podcast.
