Aye that's the rub.  I didn't think of it either, for days, even though 
I was the one that did it.  Funny how the brain goes down a path and 
doesn't want to consider alternate views.  Beliefs are extraordinarily 
difficult to change.

And afterwards we're all thinking "Well, of *course* if you expire the 
password it's at least something you should check".

Anyway I'm damn proud of how humble I am.  In fact I'm so humble I 
deserve a humility award badge.
