Ridiculous Password Requirements: no Q or Z allowed Tuesday, July 24, 2012 | comments
There's a sampling at left, but the best one is the one at the top of the article since, among many many other things, you aren't allowed to have the same two letters next to each other at all.
I don't know why these websites don't just assign passwords. That would be way easier. Also, an 8 character password isn't that secure, especially if you tell the hacker things like "the first and last letters can't be special characters and the only special characters allowed are these three" which greatly lowers the number of passwords a hacker would have to check when doing a brute force attack.

I heard an interview where he talked about how much he loved Michigan and its seasons and mentioned that there are parts of the books he imagine taking place in specific places. The beach scene below he imagines being at a specific location in Ludington. Check out those Lake Michigan grasses right there.
Also, is it just me, or are the Mouse Territories secretly a map of Southeast Michigan.
Which is interesting because I myself used Michigan as a guide to make D&D maps back in the day.
Also, in the back of the role playing game (designed by Luke Crane), the references include
Mammals of Michigan Field Guide, Stan Tekiela, Adventure Publications.Anyhow, David Petersen (or Luke), if you have a google alert set up for yourself, are reading this, and find yourself in the Ann Arbor area, shoot me an email and we'll have you over for dinner anytime.
Birds of Michigan Field Guide, Stan Tekiela, Adventure Publications.

Also note how cute my daughter is.
If you want to see some other things I've put online, you can check out the articles I posted on AnnArbor.com by going to check out a listing of all articles tagged with my name. If you check out an individual article, you can see how I had to manage what was above and below the break, captions, how things sat relative to in-text ads, and media for each post
Since those articles were posted about a year ago and that AnnArbor.com has done a redesign which may slightly change how things set.
