Doh! Now I gotta go change my password... "MaryLikesPretzelsAndBeer" should do it...
I'm always amazed how many of those systems allow you to change just one letter, usually just the case of just one, as if that doesn't undermine their intents.
I might change mine to HR Puff and Stuff who's your friend when things get rough
Fixed that for ya
re:Systems / company policies that force a password change every 30 days..
i am using a list of commonly misspelled words with a number as my passwords and hope to work my way done this list and learn a few of them.....
I just updated my location address through QRZ , how long will it take before I see it change also "Safe WEB" in my opinion is a scam from what I have been reading, and my new email is email@example.com also I put a NOTE: in my QRZ page giving my new address Someone in IOWA should tell N5JVA about this message I have lost all information on contacting him.

Back around 1995 the firm where I worked got hacked and their website was replaced with one about some guy who said he loved being ***** ** *** *** and posted a picture of himself (?) from a mall photo booth. Their password, however, was the word 'default', and was the one the web site came with. I don't make my passwords any tougher than I have to, otherwise I can't remember them, but I have never used 'default'. Some other sites on the same provider were hacked at the same time, and what they had in common was their passwords were either 'default' or '123', but then that was back in 1995.
Pretty cutting edge, in 1995.
Nothing at all wrong with writing down passwords.
It becomes wrong when it's easy to attach that password note to the account it is the password for.
I use a password manager app in my phone. I have over 300 passwords in there, all different, all strong. It syncs with my phone, my tablet and all my computers, even the Linux computers.
I wonder whose else's it syncs with.
