Password Stupidity

Apparently, the latest upgrade to the Oracle system here at work that I need to use to enter my expenses has "improved" the integrity of our passwords. The password may not contain a common word. The password may not contain any double letters. The password must contain at least one number, but cannot consist of all numbers.

In short, the password must be taped to your monitor, because there is no prospect that you will ever remember it.
