Today's Topic: Choosing a Password
Triggers: An email sent by a friend
My Grump: Now just how difficult can this be?
A friend sent me an email recently that really sums up how annoying it can be when choosing a password. I thought I'd share it with you, 'cause I'll bet you know how this feels.
Computer: Please set a new password to register......
Computer: Sorry, the password must be more than 8 characters.
User: boiled sprouts
Computer: Sorry, the password must contain 1 numerical character.
User: 1 boiled sprout
Computer: Sorry, the password cannot have blank spaces.
Computer: Sorry, the password must contain at least one upper case character.
Computer: Sorry, the password cannot use more than one upper case character consecutively.
Computer: Sorry, the password cannot contain punctuation.
Computer: Sorry, that password is already taken
