Passwords

Recently I registered as a user on a site that required me to create a password. The password I chose was rejected as the site required specific characters to be numeric; the position in the sequence was being defined. Furthermore two characters had to be “symbols”. The result was a password that I could not remember, so it is written on a postit note attached to my monitor at work. Fortunately the site is for technical support and if anyone were to use the password the worse they could do is raise a lot of support tickets in my name. This cartoon summarises the problem.
