Rumor has it that we're going to revamp the password process at work next year. It's not so much a rumor as it is a district-wide email. But who wants to read about a district-wide email? I had to fish you in first, then set the record straight.
Apparently, a password with caps and numbers isn't secure enough. We will be thwarting hackers with a sentence, by cracky! A sentence! But it can't be too long. And it has to have capitals and spaces and characters and numbers.
Sweet Gummi Mary! We are not the Denver Mint. We do not have the detailed record of creation of a certain world leader of high profile stashed away in the safe, next to our extensive collection of Ferlin Husky memorabilia. We do not hold the secret recipe for Coca Cola. The code to initiate global nuclear destruction is not within our grasp. We are a public school. A small one, at that. Nobody wants to access our records. They are already public, for those who need to know. Aside from a disgruntled student, or a gruntled student with poor grades, no one is interested in our junk.
I foresee mass chaos on a district-wide scale. How many passwords will we need? We can't use our sentence for other passwords, because a sentence is too freakin' loooooooong. Seriously. How many passwords do you think a teacher can remember? We're lucky to remember to comb our hair with a fork before first bell.
I call shenanigans! Somebody needs to get a job with the eff bee eye.
