Being a member of the Air Force Reserves as well as someone
who actually sits in the Base Network Control Center and
changes passwords for people, I can honestly say that I have
NEVER told anyone to write down their password. However, you
are quite correct as to the requirements for our passwords,
which are minimum 8 characters, using uppercase, lowercase,
special characters, and numbers, and you need to use at least
three of the four categories in your password.

For me to actually change your password, you would have to come
to the NCC in person, and present your identification card. At that
point, I would instruct the person as to what the password policy is,
and let them type in their own new password. Or if the person in question called
and is someone who I know, and recognize their voice, I will change the password,
to a generic one, then force them to change it upon logging into the system.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
