    Different password lenths

    Yo jp,I went to change my password my new password i changed it to was 42 characters long
    i entered it and it said password succesfully changed,however when i went to login it said my password was invalid but i knew it was right.so i shortened every letter down then finally it let me in. so basically the field where you change your password allows 42 characters, but the
    place where you login the password only allows 39 characters.

    please fix this soon

    Dear Lord man, its just a pass for a message board...not your login for a bank account, your work, etc


    42 chars? If its as complex as it needs to be...how the hell do you remember it?

    I know a guy whose email password was the first 3 lines of jingle bells. Took him like 5min and 3 tries just to check his email.
    Its not software piracy. Iím just making multiple off site backups.

    Is just as easy to crack as: bells

    It might just take 30-60 seconds longer


    that is kinda funny though.

    42 characters, thats nothing I once used a whole song (The Crystal Lake by Grandaddy) as a password, some idiot bet me he could crack my password withen three days with his "superfast" new computer. Needless to say he lost the bet

    lol,well im not really paranoid but I dont like using passwords that are easy to remember so I
    carry the passwords around with me on floppy or write them down,so if im carrying them on floppy and copying and pasting em,its prob safer to make em really long and hard to crack

    Umm...what happens when you lose the floppy? How is this any different to just writing it down?
