Not A Very Capital Idea

| Friendly | February 13, 2014

(I am helping a friend sign up for an online file backup service. We are both competent with computers, and often exchange ideas and support.)

Friend: “So, where’s the sign-up page?”

Me: “It’s [site].”

(He goes there and fills in the forms: email, username, password.)

Site: “This password isn’t secure enough; we require both lowercase and uppercase letters, with at least one number.”

Friend: “I cannot believe this! Why is this site asking for a capital number?”

(I stare at my friend. He slowly catches on.)

Friend: *cracking up* “I cannot believe I just said that!”
