I recently had to set up an account with a US Government web site. I had a dickens of a time picking a password. They had amazing rules:
- The first character needed to be a number.
- The password had to have at least 7 characters, but no more than 12.
- Only lower-case letters could be used.
- One special character had to be included, but only one, and it had to be the last character.
Pretty crazy rules, right?
