Quote:Joseph Bonneau, a computer scientist at the University of Cambridge, calculated the password strengths of nearly 70 million Yahoo! users. He compared the strengths of passwords chosen by different demographic groups and compared the results. People over the age of 55 pick passwords double the strength of those chosen by people under 25 years old."

Bit worrying that young people seem so soft, supple and totally unaware of harsh times. Nicely fed sheep....

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?
