While I wouldn't say he does little work around here, some of the work he does do would definitely have to be characterized as 'Monkey Business.' :whistling:

Drat! looks like I will have to change all my passwords :whistling: ,



None of my passwords are even close to those - any password you can look up in a dictionary is a bad password :help: Learned that when I first was a "newbie" as a Tallahassee Freenet user - The admins actually had to ask Over 10,000 users to change thier passwords - was very time consuming. I learned something important that day. :blink:

Think "Qwerty" is the most common out of the above. I'd say you D.O.B would have to be a "Common" one aswell.

A lot of people I know make their password "password"... simple to guess to say the least.
