Password Monster Vanquished by Heroic Developer

March 8th, 2011

The dreaded Password Manager Muncher-Monster (who snuck into the last snapshot) was defeated in an office on the fifth floor at the Opera Software ASA Headquarters in Oslo, Norway a little under an hour ago. A heroic developer from the Norwegian browser vendor and connected technology innovator Opera Software went head to head against the best in what can only be described as a heroic battle.

The Desktop Quality Assurance of All Things That Can Possibly Go Wrong Department was relieved by this heroic act. The dreaded beast had ravished on the defenseless pioneering spirits that had ventured out to test the latest changes including severe bugs and data loss situations in the Opera desktop product.

The QA department notes that the big red warning urging the adventurous to back-up first is there for a good reason. “It’s important to back everything up, always.” says one passwordless QA.
