I hate, hate HATE those companies that not only require a certain
number of characters, but refuse passwords that are recent repeats of
past passwords (like 20 passwords back, or won't allow consesequitive
letters, or common words, or anything at ALL easily memorable - no
wonder I can't ever get into the same place twice. What the heck do
they care if I get "hacked", that's *NY* problem, and besides, the
passwords I use and remember couldn't possibly be figured out by
anyone but me and *maybe* Ben. Who the hell are they to tell me
what's a proper password for me??!!
/password rant


Sorry we were so rudely interrupted....

I am developing a password system that generates the password from the web
address of the internet page on which I am located at the time. IOW, if I am
on, "Wellsfargo.com" the password I will use will be unforgettable to me,
because it will be generated by the word, "wellsfargo" together with a
standard password that applies to all that I can remember easily. When I
complete this, my password will be different for every vendor, and yet
unforgetable by me, since I will generate it mentally based on the name of
the website. I may try to get around the word length problem by generating
an 8 character password to begin with, since thare are some sites that
require more than 6 characters, but I haven't come across one yet that
refuses to accept 8 characters. I will use the keyboard letter positions to
generate specal characters, since most "password advisors" insist on mixing
in some special characters, although I really can't understand why. They
only add about 10 characters to the standard 36 or so alpha-numeric set. But
the keyboard has them, so it will be easy for me to use it to generate them.
