Give me Liberty, or give me ... give me ... I forgot
By John Clingan-Oracle on Jan 20, 2005
I forgot my password. Again. One of my online accounts. Of course, we all have our password schemes because it's the only way we can remember them. Writing down passwords is no-no #2, right behind using "password" as your password.
So you may ask "Why did you forget your password?". Typically I would answer "early stages of Alzheimers". However, not this time. No, it's because every stinking online web site I happen to belong to has a \*different\* password policy. And many of those passwords policies don't match my password scheme. It's a one-off. Since it's a one-off, I'll forget it. Only massive amounts of Ginseng will fix that problem. And my passwords are cryptic enough where password hints makes no sense if it doesn't match my password scheme. Here's a thought for an advertising campaign.
With your Online Account you will receive a lifetime supply of Ginseng
Hey, I would go for that, although admittedly I would probably pick the online account with the "schwing" drug first.
Hey, online account dudes/dudettes, we need Project Liberty support sooner rather than later. While Liberty can do much more than web single sign-on, that alone would be a good start. We customers would be happy. You dudes/dudettes would save a boatload of "I forgot my password" budget. Win-Win.
