    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    In all large corporations, there is a pervasive fear that someone, somewhere is having fun with a computer on company time. Networks help alleviate that fear.

    Expect end-users to forgo convenience in place of security.

    Require your users to change passwords too frequently

    Hmm I dont see why that was so funny, this could easily save your system, share passes, account admins, email etc, did I miss suttin?
    P.s I dont wanna be a party popper
    Sometimes I try to fit a 16-character string into an 8–byte space, on purpose.

    It's usually attached to a "can't use the same password for the next 45 passwords" policy. The average person will just write their new password down on a sticky and stick it to their monitor. Saw this a lot in the military before the CAC cards came into play. I think the password policy was something like, At least 9 characters, must be upper, lower, numbers and special characters, can't have any part of your name, your spouse's name or any of your children. Changes every 30 days, and you can't use the same password for 45 passwords.

    Or they just change the number at the end.

    The Financial Controller in the last company I worked for used the passwords like; "Password1" , then "Password2, etc.

    No, that wouldn't work either, I forgot the part where you couldn't do that either.

    It sucked, even I would write it down, though I'd put it in my wallet.

    I think this falls under the "It's only funny because it's true." category.
