never use a tilde character as the first letter in your password.

I thought i was being clever with my algorithm for choosing new passwords, for reasons I can't remember this had "~" as the first character - BIG mistake. "~" is the escape character for lots of things like ssh and our service processor to host protocols.. good job I did not have "~#" or "~." as the first two characters! Something best avoided.
