"And I do write them down...and frequently misplace the master password sheet." For this, what about keeping your master password sheet in your favorite book? You can also pick a page number to have it always in the same place.
Time ago I used to have different user names and passwords for every different site. The problem became when the sites I log in started to be too many. Then it was when I simplified everything. If you keep it simple you have less chances to forget your log in info. And keep all that info in your favorite book. :)
Hi Susan--thanks for the sound advice! Here's the wrinkle: several of the sites I have to use won't accept the username or password I prefer to use: some don't accept repeating letters, some want one numeral, some want two...so I end up using variables of my "universal" username and password for these sites. And I do write them down...and frequently misplace the master password sheet. I am actually an organizational nightmare in everything except my work (where I am able to appear organized in spite of everything)
"I have difficulty remembering my usersname and password for all the sites I use regularly and the ones I use the most have a "remember me" option. I don't use the same username or password for evey site I use-"
It sounds really complicated. What about using the same user name at least? -this is possible. You should write down all your user names and passwords somewhere and keep them handy, too.
Some of my friends call me Mr. Pivot. Not because of sports but I've tried so many different things just for the sake of trying. Some things have been fun and so far, IT is the king. But I am still experimenting..
Tracking buying patterns is one of the things online companies do really well--it's easy to "capture" trends online. In retail, companies are giving out rewards cards for the same reason. I'm actually tired of pulling out two cards every time I make a purchase, but the savings are pretty good. That is, if they are savings: most of the time, the incentive is buy one get one free, and I don't need two...

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
