So, I has an authenticator, I has. So I am safe from the fiendish Chinese and their gold-hacking ways. Or something.
But there is a downside to this, as I’ve discovered. I keep my authenticator on my key-ring, because I travel a lot for both work and pleasure, and if I didn’t have it on the key ring, I’d lose all my away-from-home playtime.
However, when I’m at home, I keep my keys in a pot in the hall, nowhere near the study where my computer is. So, when I pop onto my iMac for 10 minutes’ WoW before I head to work, my authenticator is nowhere to hand. So I don’t bother. The same often happens in the evening when I get in from work, but before I start work on dinner.
Is the security worth the couple of hours’ play time I’m losing a week?
