How to Create a Secure Password ... by C.L. Beck

We've been told it over and over again--create secure passwords. How? By having x number of characters, numbers, capital letters, etc., etc., etc. It drives us nuts! How are we supposed to remember ninety million passwords, all comprised of different characters?

Well, here's an unconfirmed (unconfirmed="I didn't bother to check it out.") report, by an unknown author, of one woman's version of a secure password.

During a recent password audit by a company, it was found
that a female employee was using the following password:


When asked why she had such a long password, she rolled her
eyes and said, "Hello! It has to be at least eight characters
long and include at least one capital."

Don't ya love it? She has to be blond!

Okay, that is funny! It opens up a whole new world. By the way, a blonde wouldn't know that Sacramento is a capital. Even I don't know that and I'm not blonde. Not legitimately anyway.

Danyelle: Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Glad you enjoyed it. It still makes me laugh, even though I know the punchline. :)

Anna: Oh, I'm shocked ... you're not a legitimate blond?? Are we talking hair, or ditziness? :) (JK, since you are so good at writing humor, you have to mean hair color.)

Thanks for stopping by, Anna. It's always fun to hear from you.

My son Brian made a huge long password that takes him about 10 seconds to type... really! He says he hasn't had spam since he put it in. Maybe he has something there...
