How old was your password?

It's the first time I've changed mine in 1,862 days - and I wouldn't have done it now except I was forced to.

I used this app: +/- Days from a date

... and calculated that May 11, 2011 is the last time I changed it.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. Fusion® Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)
Best 1/4: 1,320 nanoseconds @ 670,616,629.2 miles per hour

Mine was from my start date, but it was a strong password (I work in IT, so it's habit).

What upsets me is that I heard about the issue of car forums being hacked recently, so I changed my password on all my forums this morning, only to be forced to again this evening.

The site will tell how many days old it is when you're directed to update it.

It seems a bit over the top to me. I know why they're doing it, but we're fixing 20 yr old cars here, not each others financial investments!

My password goes back to my start date, 2010, but the only way I could get into this site was I had to register as a newbie, that's ok, as long as I can chat with fellow MN-12 people, that's all that matters, the worst part is that I can't start a thread for like 2 weeks and 30 posts, I just hope I don't need to start a thread or need to ask a question about my bird till I meet the standards of a "newbie" are meet.............
