Password complexity: The Microsoft way - revisited
Yes, this nonsense again. 30 minutes of failed password attemps later brings us to this: Me moaning more. An enforced password change due to wanting to test a piece of custom CSS in a different browser (Firefox). 30 minutes of failed passwords.
Passwords can't contain your user ID and need to be at least 8 characters long with at least 3 of the following: upper-case letters, lower-case letters, numbers and symbols
Result: Ragequit and go back to working on other projects.
