Remember Your Password

Monday Puzzle: Remember Your Password - TierneyLab Blog - "In these days of heightened computer security, an average computer user has to manage a hundred passwords in his or her head, or so it seems. Every computer system you use at work, and every Internet site you use regularly (or even once in a blue moon) wants you to create an account with a password. Not only that, the requirements for the passwords are becoming more stringent: mix up letters and numbers they say, and sometimes non-alphanumeric symbols too. Don’t include any words that can be found in the dictionary, or the names of your children and pets. Change the password every ninety days. And don’t write it down anywhere."
