At school we use windows and macintosh machines. The Administrator guy tells me that windows "services for macintosh" makes it so that my password has to be 8 character or less to use the mac machines. This is complete bull poop. With the new operating systems permitting passwords with seveal dozen characters I like to use passphrases like "mypasswordispasswordandyouwillnevercrackitwithjohnorl0ptcrack" but with this limit I'm forced to make my domain password shorter. It there a plan for services for macintosh to change this or is my school's Mac administrator lying to me and doesn't want to do a reconfig? How can this be resolved besides using stronger passwords.(which arent really strong-John really does work wonders when run for a week or two)
