It feels like it is becoming more common. I come into work, flip on the computer and there it is, time once again to change my password.
I understand security issues, but it feels like I have to change my password all of the time even though it's only every 90 days. What's even worse is, I can't use any password that I have ever used before. I can come up with new passwords. That's not the problem. The issue is remembering it. When I change my password for the login on my computer, I immediately have to change it for everything else I log into so that I don't end up confusing myself even further.
I think I have stretched my brain on being creative when it comes to inventing new passwords though. There are only so many I can come up with. At least let me recycle one or two from the past. I thought it was good to recycle. That's what all the commercials say.
