'My first password was pooky. I was twelve, in my last year of primary school and terrified of the bullying seemingly promised by high school. To distract myself from this dire fate, I'd been reading Garfield comic books and had taken to Pooky, a brown teddy bear and sole confidant of Jim Davis' grumpy orange feline creation. It didn't click until much later that reading comics about a neurotic, anthropomorphic cat and his silent but loveable soft toy would do me no favours at recess.'
