- must be 8 characters long. not 8 characters minimum. 8 characters total.
- must have at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter and one number. it can not have any "special" characters.
- the password is not case sensitive
seriously, i have a more restrictive (and safer) password policy on my laptop at home. couple that with the fact that my username is just 7 random characters (and not, say, my first initial followed by my last name, as is normal), and i can tell that i am really going to hate doing my hours.
