Password Angst

with one comment

T-20: You have 20 days until your password expires
“Peace, leave it for another day”

T-10: You have 10 days until your password expires
“Ten. That’s like more than a week. Laterz”

T-1: <no alert / missed alert>

T=0: Change your password. NOW.

“Whoa! Windows XP, Y U No give warni … nevermind. Purrfect timing though, just when I had to do something really important …

<Enter new password>

The New password should have at least two special characters, three vowels, four consonants and five numerals. The alphabets and the numerals should be non-consecutive, non-repeating. You cannot recycle the last twenty passwords you have used, or the hundred odd iterations you tried for those twenty.
The new password has to contain at least some part of the Latin name of an animal. The animal chosen must be from a different phylum from the last twelve ones.

Attempt1:      Too simple
Attempt2:      Too simple (Lol but that was funny)
Attempt3:      Dude. Seriously
Attempt4:      Nice try. This is your neighbour’s password. Use something else.
Attempt29:    Abuse aimed at Windows/ XP/ Bill Gates/ Microsoft is not acceptable as a password. I do feel your pain though.
Attempt 51:   Great success

Please re-enter username-password to login

T+0.01:         Oh … wait. What was the password I finally entered? FFFUUUUUUU……

T+0.02:         <Request New Password, resigned to fate>

Sigh. Every. Single. Time.

1. This would probably look better as a Meme-comic, if only I didn’t suck at art in general

2. Here’s a handy link for those people who dread passwords like I do

3. Here are more examples of ridiculous expectations regarding passwords!
