October 17th - It was love at first authentication

There was a time, not that long ago, when almost all of the texts I received were from family or friends. Nowadays, though, it seems like I get far more texts from authentication services, sending me codes so I can verify to some web site or app that I am whom I claim to be. In the wake of yet more online data breaches (or alleged ones), I just keep enabling two-factor authentication in more and more places. Where will this sort of thing end? I don’t know, but I’m just glad I’m already married.
