Setting your password


A friend just sent me this. You may have seen it before, but in any event it very likely echoes many experiences we have all had in this wonderful world of virtuality and pseudo-security. When one thinks that Big Brother is watching everything anyway...And what on earth is he going to do with all this information, the sorting of which would require most of the unemployed in the world, and quite some training for them in the process.


Todd: Sorry, your password has expired - you must register a new one.
Did anyone discover my password and hack my computer?
Todd: Sorry, but your password has expired - you must get a new one.
Why then do I need a new one as that one seems to be working pretty good?
Todd: Sorry, you must get a new one as they automatically expire every 30 days.
Can I use the old one and just re-register it?
Todd: Sorry, you must get a new one.
I don't want a new one as that is one more thing for me to remember.
Todd: Sorry, you must get a new one.
