    Despite being up the pool without a paddle, competitors in the Titanic Challenge raised $1,980 for the Valley County Community Pool Campaign June 12. Eleven teams of three hit the pool in canoes and armed with buckets with the goal of sinking – or at least taking on less water than – their opponents. After a calcutta and pre-competition interview (teams were unwilling to share their strategies) with auctioneer Brian Austin, the rounds of competition began to the soundtrack of peals of lau...

  • Passwords? Past Words.

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Jun 15, 2022

    For all of the things we secure behind a password, I’ve yet to run into anyone who truly enjoys them. Financial details, our social media accounts, email, streaming services.

Will we soon be able to ditch our least-favorite combinations of at least eight characters with capitals and numbers mixed in? I’ve written about passwords on a couple of occasions, bu...

  • Getting things done!

The main thing I’m proud of having accomplished is getting (almost) all the houseplants moved outside for the summer. A few (notably the Hoya vine, the newly started mango and avocado trees, my kaffir lily, and a couple other small ones) will remain in the house where the Montana winds cannot rip them apart. But just moving them outside isn’t the complete job - it’s also then getting the windows washed (both inside and out), a...
