OCTranspo Transit Passes

I've been trying to figure out why OCTranspo doesn't offer an off-peak pass. The only thing I've been able to think of as yet is that since they have a cash/pass/ticket based system it would be difficult to do. Any thoughts?

I can see that when they eventually move to some sort of card based system for passes/declining balance and do away with cash (I suppose this is harder to do for bus systems, easier to do for subways due to the number of stations/stops) that maybe this would be more realistic. A card system with declining balance might be made better by allowing you to bill fare credit to your cell bill or having vendors sell prepaid cards (like prepaid cell or long distance) to top up your card by way of phone (this requires persistent data connectivity to any reader which would have to be cellular or muni-wifi).

One-Time Passwords

So, in my recent travels I was thinking about ways to make passwords more secure. I'm always afraid that some Internet cafe I'm in has some sort of keylogging software/device installed or something and that my passwords are going to be scammed. As my girlfriend Meg pointed out, you can do some obfuscation of your own by clicking around and entering the password and other characters in on different lines/input areas... but I think there could be another fairly easy way as well.

Cryptography uses one-time codes or one-time pads to provide people with what are disposable encryption keys essentially.
