You might have password security problems if:
A. Your password is on a yellow sticky note on your monitor.
Most of the time, we pick a password that we can remember. Honestly, thatís the biggest problem -- you canít remember your password, so you write it down. But writing down your password is like writing your PIN number on your ATM card Ė pretty useless for security purposes.
I canít tell you what the uncrackable password is Ė if I could the CIA might want to talk to me. However, I can give you some guidelines to help you through some of the more common mistakes we make when choosing passwords.
Okay, so youíve read the list and now, you want to change your password.
Using the Net in your Small Budget Campaign by Jim Fleming
I canít e-mail my love. I canít fax you my heart. I canít see your face in cyberspace. I donít know where to start.
In the first edition of Winning Big in Small Budget Campaigns, which was first published in 1997, we dedicated just a few pages to an increasingly important campaign medium. In fact, we didnít even include it under the media chapter, but relegated it to the leadoff item under the next, catchall chapter Ė ďFragmentary Bombs.Ē
But like my hero, Bob Dylan, once intoned (or moaned), ďThe times, they are Ďa changiní.Ē Like fax machines and cellular phones, which were considered novelties not long ago, the Internet has rapidly become the required World Wide Weapon in political arsenals, especially for small budget, down-the-ballot campaigns.
Focus On is our new series of email tutorials. We will show you a few overlooked features in our system. We encourage you to print this document and keep it next to your computer, to follow along easily through the lesson.
In this edition, we show you the ins and outs of Pledge Tracking - you'll become your campaign's own resident fundraising wizard!
