password stupidity

password criteria for my new contract overlords billing system:

  • 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.
