66.3 bits of entropy and grackles

0 minutes, 25 seconds

No relation to each other, aside from happening on the same day: My daughter gave me a note with a password on it:


I was then to speak the password into the “walkie talkie” (mouse) when I needed help. I liked this because:

  • She even knew what a password was at all
  • She decided that her service needed a password
  • She used a pretty decent password, 66.3 bits of entropy!

Later that night, at sunset, just like the for the past 2 months, the grackles came to roost in our palm trees. Lovely!
