    I can print off enough to wallpaper our labs . Maybe we'll stop having to reset so many passwords? Or not ...

    I had to laugh because the password generator tool URL that is advertised on the posters is actually blocked by EMBC! Brilliant that.

    "What happens at the conference stays at the conference" etc.

    Who said something like that? Obviously not about a conference.

    Thanks for posting the link Tonyd - all our resident edugeek posters (me & robf) were out yesterday afternoon!

    As for Gav and not posting - i'll make sure he knows someone is making remarks about his inability to hold his pop.... you're right, that might get him to post, even though i think deep down he's scared of us technical folk ;-P

    Looks like we are going to have to do another print run soon. Hope to add another poster to the lineup in the next month or 2.

    Finally... password generator is actually a simple bit of JavaScript I wanged together in an afternoon. It produces vaguely decent passwords, with some predictable aspects which is a trade-off to try and make them more pronounceable. If anyone wants the code i can attach it somewhere, would be easy to add to an intranet page etc... and any feedback/improvements welcome.

    There are some other really good (produced in > 1 afternoon ) passgens out there.. i will see if i can find links to em.

    What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas

    That would be very handy if you could do that tom, will come in very handy.

    Maybe could add it to the wiki that was people on edugeek could improve it and make changes. or if you wish for it to be left that scrap that

    Thanks

    James.

    Le Javascreept:

    all you need now is an HTML form....

    <script type="text/javascript">

    function password(len,hasnum)
    {
    // password(length,hasnum) length = password len, hasnum != 0 you get
    // a number in there
    var pass = "";
    var digit = -1;
    if (hasnum)
    {
    digit = Math.round((len-1)*Math.random());
    }

    var flip = true;
    if (Math.random() > 0.7)
    {
    flip = false;
    }
    for(var i=0; i<len;i++)
    {
    var isdig = 0;
    if (i == digit)
    {
    isdig = 1;
    }
    if (flip)
    {
    pass = pass + consonant(isdig);
    }
    else
    {
    pass = pass + vowel(isdig);
    }
    flip = !flip;
    }
    return pass;
    }

    function vowel(num)
    {
    var vow = [ 'a', 'e', 'i', 'o', 'u', 'y'];
    if (num)
    {
    vow = ['0','3','4'];
    }
    var i = Math.round((vow.length-1)*Math.random());
    return vow[i];

    }

    function consonant(num)
    {
    var con = ['b', 'c', 'd', 'f', 'g', 'h', 'j', 'k', 'l', 'm', 'n', 'p', 'q', 'r', 's', 't', 'v', 'w', 'x', 'z'];
    if (num)
    {
    con = ['1','2','5','6','7','8','9'];
    }
    var i = Math.round((con.length-1)*Math.random());
    return con[i];

    }

    </script>
