It's your first and last initial followed by the year you were born, information that pretty much everyone in the school knows about everyone else.
That sounds more like what you'd make the username than the password 0_o
Does your school not have any IT or Comp Sci staff around?

This is an example of why we need computer education from a young age in the school system, and also an example of the reason that such a thing will not happen for a long, long time.
But this was done by the school administration, not by the students.

Exactly. They removed computer and web design classes at my school.
((That was my pathway dang it!))

Only goes to show that they don't know what there doing!

I agree. Sneak into the Principal's office and ransack it with a fire-axe.

Make sure to walk calmly whilst carrying your fireaxe, and never swing into your legs.

Carry it over one shoulder, and make sure you're dressed in a flannel shirt. Bonus points if you grow a beard for the occasion.

Also in regards to an earlier part of the thread, I can't wait until in 2020 the Chinese Premier starts giving a speech about ending illegal gold mining in the Kongo and he is interrupted by the fateful screaming of the President of the United States: "I'MMA LET YOU FINISH"

My school has the worst computer security possibly ever. We used to be able to create our own passwords for our student accounts, and that worked fine. However, now the school is saying that our student passwords weren't 'secure' enough, so they gave us shiny new mandatory passwords who have the same system for every student. Want to know what the new 'secure' passwords are? It's your first and last initial followed by the year you were born, information that pretty much everyone in the school knows about everyone else. So not only did they give us one of the least secure passwords they could, they pretty much told us everyone's else's password too.

The best part is? According to student policy, anything anyone does under your account is your fault, whether or not it was you who was on your account. That's right, they gave everyone the password to other people's accounts, and if someone were to use an account that didn't belong to them to do something illegal, the account owner would get in trouble, not the person who actually did it.
...LAWSUIT!!!!!

So I finally thought I fixed my adaptive brightness issue. It wasn't changing the brightness on me anymore, and I could finally work and browse in peace...

Except it came back. It started doing it again, and I looked under AMD Catalyst and sure enough, there was yet another adaptive brightness feature. This one was called Vari-Bright, underneath the Power options. For those keeping score at home, that's four tickboxes to turn off adaptive brightness.

I am honestly SO understanding why creators tend to make mooks and races to be men only in videogames.

>_<

I am getting a lot of "EWWWW attractive non-human ladies!"

You seem to have found a bunch of weirdos then, because as far as my interactions with the internet go, attractive non-human ladies get just as good if not a better reaction than humans do.

Can't make everyone happy sadly.  on one hand you make all the mooks male (or all female) and you might get called out as being sexist. 

Make them have a realistic sexual diversity and you get all "Hey that female charr is kinda hot and that makes me feel funny.  I'd better accuse the artist as being a sexual deviant!"

...yes female charr are kinda hawt.

Clearly the only solution is to have all the characters and mooks be platonic solids.  Clearly that will clear everything up.

I'd question how much of that "eww" is social ass-covering. If something's close enough to human conceptions of attractiveness to be attractive, there's not really anything wrong with being attracted to it.
