in reply to poll ideas quest 2020

In 2020, my method to securely store passwords is:

perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'

        That seems to be the main obstacle of getting a medical degree these days: "How to decode another doctors handwriting" ;-)
