Unskilled Tax Uneducated Tax

I don't know how much time I've lost getting around "walls" on the Internet.

I learned how to build websites and program in the mid-90s and it allowed me to get around some common authorization practices at the time. People would leave passwords in the source code of their website and that source code would show secret URLs you could access. I still remember how disappointed (and excited) I was when I saw "passwords as URLs" pattern. The idea was pretty simple, make the password the URL on your page instead of putting the password in your source code:

const password = prompt("What is the password?")
window.location.href = http://www.some-website-from-the-90s.com/secret-pages/" + password + ".html"
