    ROTFL!!! :haha: :haha:

    As funny as that is, I wonder if anyone actually tried using that as a password? :think:

    Think of it, it may be the simplest to use, and yet possibly the hardest password to figure out! :haha:

    I only use simple passwords when I'm forced to register an account on other forums/websites. For email accounts that I use regularly, I don't do that :lol:

    I have to admit that they are easy to remember. :mrgreen:

    I once created very complicated passwords, as advised by folks - a complex combination of characters and numbers but man... the worst happened - I totally forgot it within the week!! :wall: :wall:

    So we really have to balance between easy-to-remember passwords and something that is secure enough to deter most hackers. Otherwise, we will spend our time asking the e-mail or forum scripts to e-mail us our forgotten passwords! :haha: :haha:

    Speaking of passwords, do you guys have a system for your passwords? Do you like use a single password for everything, or different passwords according to security level / type of application, etc?

    I think 2-3 sets of password should be more than sufficient. But in my office, I'm forced to change password every 3 months, and some of the systems do not allow similar password, dictionary words! It's a real headache trying to remember them. It's no wonder people always forget their password!
