Modern life - how computers add to my insanity

This is totally how I feel sometimes. If I didn't love the benefits of modern technology so much, I'd be a total Luddite.

I laughed, I couldn't help it. The restrictions usually mean I can't remember what I used so well.

Sad state of affairs for certain.

This is so awful and accurate! I was getting crazy the other day at my bank in front of a bank officer trying to come up with an acceptable new password!

My husband actually had a variation of the above conceived a number of years ago under similar circumstances. When he gave me the password, I totally laughed as it had many creative uses of FU.

LOLOL. That multiplied that by a hundred, once for each account, site, whatever... Then I keep forgetting them. It's so frustrating!

No kidding. I have about 50 variations of a number of passwords. If I didn't have them written down, I'd be so SOL.

Had to look up SOL. A new word TLA for my vocabulary!

Now you have to tell me, what's TLA? (I love the term S.O.L, it describes so much of life. )

Three Letter Acronym! ;o)

I just found this and laughed and laughed in a delayed release of fury because Yahoo did this to me the other week and even when I filled in every single stupid bloody condition with numbers, symbols, uppercase, lowercase and it was 25 letters long Yafuckinghoo was still saying 'Your password is too weak'. Had I been able to get hold of the person responsible for the codes at that moment it's possible someone would have died.

As it is I now have a password too complex for me to bother using. My Yahoo Mail can rot.

So sorry you just did this one for reals. Absolutely, Yahoo sucks.

Too funny! I'm trying to decide whether I can share this with my workmates, as part of my job is to tell everyone to update their password at regular (and much hated) intervals. I will probably limit to the select few who will appreciate it the most :)

By all means share the joy pain. LOL.

Glad to share the cyber-angst.
