I edited your subject line - let's keep "rude words" off the homepage, eh? Particularly when they look like something designed to start a flame war if the fanboise don't even follow the link or watch the video (like I didn't and I don't own any apple products) ...

I think it would actually be easier to support unicode in .NET if .NET didn't purport to support unicode.
I'm making a lexer generator that supports unicode and the char datatype is absolutely useless for it.
I have to read unicode data directly as raw bytes just so i can process it properly because the BCL will not give me the information i need about the characters. So much of the unicode information is hidden they may as well have not supported it at all.
Password policies are often just set by the whim of some web dev.
I just attempted to sign into Barnes & Noble site so I could buy something.
It's been about 6 months since I signed in so in their infinite wisdom they told me :
"Your password has expired since you haven't signed in lately."
So, I had to get an email link, and change my password. I tried to use the same one I had previously used and they knew it was the same one. I guess they just checked the hash...hope they don't store the pwd in cleartext.
Think about how dumb this really is. If a hacker had the password then she would've signed in and kept it fresh. But since the password hadn't been used they think it has been compromised in some way. That makes no sense.
Plus, now they used more time of a valid customer / user and I had to update my password generator to use the new key (password manager).

Meh. You should use multi-factor authentication. Even Shakespeare knew about that!
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,—
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
