Password changing time

I am fairly certain that passwords that expire are timed to do so at the most inopportune time, such as hours before a two week vacation, just before falling asleep, or after an undisclosed amount of sake at dinner. It never fails that the next time you type in that password, you don’t recall what it is.

I hope I remember my new password in the morning.

  1. That’s why I cycle through a set of closely-related passwords. I believe that password cycling is a waste of time and doesn’t actually make your account any safer. (For some people it will make it less safe, since they have to write the password down, which is a security risk.)

    You should have e-mailed it to me; then I could have told it to you today :)
