This is a canary message, to be removed in the case of my death. If you're reading this, I haven't died yet.

Then again, how would you know? I mean, how could I possibly delete this message after my own demise?

You know what? Just go ahead and assume I'm dead. Any posts appearing to be made by me are from an impostor who's stolen my identity post-mortem, and only further prove the fact that I am dead. After all, why would I even think to post a canary message if I was expecting to be alive to remove it anyway?

In any case, I'm still not the droid you're looking for.

Your best bet is to probably just start with a non-specialized tech support or sysadmin job, leveraging whatever experience you can already demonstrate. Once you've put some time in there, then you can show employers you know what you're doing on a computer and your Sec+ (or similar) will demonstrate enough interest/proficiency in security-related topics to make you desirable as an entry-level security professional.

Then the developers who built the system are really the only people who can answer for this.

@Kevin KeePass has that covered as well.

@Kevin If you're using a password manager, presumably it's because you've lost the ability to memorize some or all of your passwords. At that point, you may as well just switch to fully non-memorable and random-generated passwords for best security.
