A Video Spotted on YouTube

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

We’re long-overdue for another blog post, so, we were happy to stumble on another YouTube video from late last year of someone using for playing while watching horror movies. We don’t have a template for that, but we have a bunch of other bingo templates for our users.

Thanks for the video, librarianfanmail.

We stumbled on a user generated video about

In our semi-regular search of the web for references to, we found this short  video by MrFloresFilm on YouTube of an educational use of our bingo card generator. It’s always fun to see where our bingo cards show up.

Selling Bingo Cards as an eBook?

Friday, December 14th, 2007

Today we began a test auction of a set of eBooks consisting of a thousand or so pages of our produced bingo cards.

We tried eBay a year or two ago when was brand new – actually, it wasn’t even on it’s own domain at the time. It was known as at the time, now that address redirects you to our permanent address. That didn’t work, we were trying to sell user accounts to our website – it was too weird in the eBay context.

This time, we’re trying the eBook concept. If for some reason you want basic bingo cards without access to our spiffy web site, you can bid on the eBooks on eBay. Bidding starts at $.99, so who knows, you might get a steal.

Will anyone bid? Who knows… we’ll find out in three days.

My users rarely forget passwords.

The catalyst for the starting of the Perceptus blog was to give me a logical place to post about a series of code updates to that are just around the corner.

It’s been about 2/3 of a year since any major changes have happened to the site, so a few items have made the to-do list.

The first change was a relatively simple one that I expected to need to do a long time ago. User-resettable passwords! Surprisingly, I’ve only received about half a dozen requests for password resets over the last year or two that has existed. This is out of a few hundred registered users to the site.

Apparently, people do not tend to forget their passwords. Or maybe they use really simple passwords to less-important things like their favorite bingo card printing website. Or maybe I’ve got a lot of bank PIN’s or phone numbers being used as passwords. Who knows. I can’t explain it. I know that in my past technical support roles, I have had to reset a much higher percentage of passwords for Windows network logins, especially after vacations.

BTW, no, I never store the plain text passwords, only hashes. Please harass any of your favorite software vendors that still store plain text passwords anywhere.

It’s not that interesting, but here’s my new password reset page for
