Like most of you I have many passwords. Most of my passwords are quite good. The really important ones are 9 or 10 characters long, and most of the other are 7 or 8. None of them are easily guessable, and all have letters and numbers, most have a symbol of some kind.
I was shopping for a new desk on the internet this evening and a most curious event happened. Like most web sites they dispaly an image made up of a bunch of random letters and ask me to retype the gibberish so they know I'm a real person.
Tonite it repeated 8 of the nine digits of one of my passwords! I can't imagine the odds, maybe I should play the lottery this week?
