A comment on the blog entry Stack Overflow Private Beta Begins (2008) says the password for Stack Overflow is "nostalgic". I'm curious (for history's sake), what was the password?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
The password is a reference to the movie WarGames... For a long time, another reference to that movie was a fixture of Stack Overflow, but has since departed.
