Ahh, the annual routine of changing ones password 5 times in a day (the last change being back to what it was originally).

The only staff members I know who don't do this are those who store their password in plain text in their e-mail client.

A colleague at my last job was so annoyed with the password change policy that he cobbled together a little command-line prog which asked for your current password, then in a tight loop set it to foo.1, foo.2, ..., foo.10 and then back to foo. Later versions were more sophisticated and inserted a delay as he came to suspect the server had begun to notice and disallow changes made faster than a human could type...

Hopefully he doesn't work for any of the banks I use...

Ah. I don't do either of those things. I just pick another password and remember it. Is that weird? 8-)

It's very compliant of you!
