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......

User: sprouts

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

User: 50soddingboiledsprouts
