    It takes about an hour but it's pretty secure..
    Not only would my proposed password kick ass out behind the dumpster just like Biden, it will turn you into Biden fairly quickly. It's the miracle of PCs is the ... oh you know the thing.

    What still pisses me off are the ones that won't let me use my 12 digit password with upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols.
    Some do but many still don't.
    Even bank sites and credit card sites don't let you put in a good secure password.

    I like some of the ideas I'm seeing here.

    I remember back in the 80's and 90's when people were really pissed off as password requirements became more and more stringent.
    The pop3 email accounts that got hacked because people used 1234 or abcd or stupid stuff like that was common.
    T'was job security for me however.
    It's not the bridges burned that bother me but the ones that I never crossed

    Worst sites are government sites.
