Re: FFS

Agreed, but...

Username$ = identity

Password$ = authentication

Just two strings.

So how about two fingers?

Finger1 = identity

Finger2 = authentication

We need a philosopher to figure out why this symmetry is invalid.

It obviously is nonsense. I'm just not sure why. Based on the symmetry, fingers should be as good as strings.
