Every Sentient Being's Guides

Chris Spackman's Guides to Technology

I say that these guides are for every sentient being as a way of being inclusive without calling anyone idiot or dummy or the such. I hope you find them helpful. Right now, I just have one published here, but the second, much bigger one, should be coming later this summer.

NEW 2021 June 1: Guide to Password Security

A short (about 70 pages) introduction to passwords, password security, and a bit of general computer security. Chapter 2 has all the tips boiled down into about 4 pages. The rest of the book goes deeper into the advice and also explains a lot of the why for the advice.
