Personally I see it as more like a puzzle. You start by finding that easy, well-loved corner bit, and then you have to mix and match more and more of the puzzle until you have the perfect result. If one little fragment is missing, it is not perfect and may be misprocessed by others:).

The other option is seeing it as being like algebra. I once had an algebra teacher who kept telling me, nope, you can not start to solve the problem by finding the solution, you need to simply do the very first step, and then the next... Programming is exactly like this as you need to have each little element working perfectly before anything further will do so. In algebra, one incorrect calculation and the whole thing falls apart. In programming it is just the same.

Cheers,
Napa

    [Corion]: Yay. FF now has u2f built-in (behind an about:config setting), so using an USB token to sign in actually works :)
    [Corion]: So, it's not all bad with the new FF :)
    [holli]: 2factor is a bit too much for me. i just use passwords like jhbn8789q27312laks dmaw98^
    [moritz]: isn't there also some about:config setting to enable the old plugin API?
    [Discipulus]: indeed, only the logo is nicer
    [Corion]: moritz: Hmm, I doubt so, as I think they moved away from XUL and other UI stuff, which was used by most plugins I used
    [Corion]: holli: I'm trying it out with Github and so far I don't dislike it. It's basically like an extra key I press to log in, which is an OK flow for Github
    [Corion]: I haven't tried out recovery in case of a broken USB key though (even though I have three such U2F tokens lying around here)
