I claim to have nothing to do with the 'ken' part of this.  Yes, that's my story.

Finally, an explanation of the whole holiday-fruitcake thing.  (Aside from the contretemps a few years ago when UK airports were treating them as infernal devices..)

I've been running two factor with Google for a couple of years now. It works really well, and they were an early adopter of OATH. It was a bit rough in the early days (lots of apps needed app specific passwords for a long time). It has worked perfectly for me for the last six months or so, though.
