    He is people, think about it. The third unknown is the password length. So
    one knows it is 9 characters long then we start at nine characters, no need
    to work through the 1 to 8 characaters. In short knowing the length has
    just reduced the number of possible options.
    Or your idenity.

    Finally, change your password(s) often. Creates more possibilities in
    effect.

    Its also the users fault for not churning away from Xtra, or any company
    which gives such poor service. Nothing focus a companies attention like a
    great loss of profit to the point of none at all.

    The American date format is not going to win because the other ones rule
    over the rest of the world. the YY/MM/DD version is also getting a hold.

    The backwards American date system is already winning. The New Zealand
    newspapers and magazines all tend to use it - NZ Herald, TV Guide, etc.
    :-(

    Just use "password" as your password for everything ... the hackers
    will be so busy trying to work out what compliocated phrase you're
    using that they'll never think to use such an obvious one. ;-)

    They are *not* using your computer, they're using your Xtra/Yahoo mail
    account. Your computer has *nothing* to do with it.

    Nah, i's just Americans being typically obstinate and insisting on
    doing things their own way as usual. The same reason that Internet
    Explorer ignores the rules and makes up its own, which means making
    websites is a lot more difficult that it should be.

    dd mm yy has increased in usage in the US since the 1980s for visas etc,
    the us military also uses dd mm yy
    As has the iso format yyyy mm dd, which is self sorting. Popular for
    file names.
