Hey all,

So the CS50 Fair is tomorrow. I feel like we should send out a PSA warning
people against foolishly putting their usual username/password combos into
CS50 projects. I know it's frowned upon to use common passwords across
accounts anyway, but I'm pretty sure many projects will be storing passwords
in plaintext (as that's what they did for one of their psets).

Thoughts?
Mike
