    The “6” generates 8 characters that are reasonably typeable. To get twice as many, use 12, which generates 16 characters. The ratio is 3 to 4, which is what I was trying to say in the show, and got badly backwards. :)

    Anyone have a link for the charging iphone case that Alex was talking about. I googled for every spelling of mofee or mofie or whatever it is, but came up empty.

    Thanks!

    Randall’s tip also works on Windows for those forced to use Windows at work.
