I like nearly everyone on the planet have a bit of an issue with procrastination. If something can be done now, but it could also be done later, why not later? While there are a good many articles on how bad for you procrastination is for you I am not going to choose to dwell on it here. Instead I'll refer you to my betters here and here.

Flock Password Confirmation

The trouble with this confirmation is all the thoughts that go through my head everytime I see it. The obvious "Do I want to have my password remembered here?" "How sensitive is this password?" "How public is this computer?"

The more obscure "Do I want to have to remember this password?" "If I say yes, I will lose that reminder of what this password is and may forget it! Then what will I do?"

And rather than making any decision after all those thoughts, I just click "Not Now" and walk away feeling defeated, that once again I couldn't make this decision. If there is a one-password-to-rule-them-all solution that is reasonably secure that would be nice, but it seems like a pretty difficult problem.

Oh yeah, and I would like to make one more button on that confirmation dialog box. It's the "if I get my password right, then remember it" button.
