I'm just an average person, that uniquely combines strict, engineering mind with a non-schematic, humanistic and magical way of looking on life and surrounding world.

Add a little bit of madness, and you'll get entire picture of me! :]

I'm a developer, both desktop and mobile, with 15+ years of experience and 50+ small-to-big projects on account. In the very same time I'm a writer with similar experience and a lot of books, articles, blog posts or own blogs ideas on account.

comment Password strength in Wordpress Network
@tim. Yes, of course! But, then again... According to an answer given at WD, they're using zxcvbn library by Dropbox. I used it to verify a password, that I'm usually using is considered as strong by Wordpress / Dropbox checker. While it turned out to be so weak, that I wasn't able to continue registration on Samsung. I begin to think, if we're not falling into some kind of paranoia. How can the same password be considered strong by one checker and to weak to continue, by another?

comment Is fourteen characters long password really weak?
Yeap, my character strings are certainly from a dictionary (non-English). I know, that even non-English, dictionary-based words used in passwords are extremely easy to break. But, then again, what can you say about xkcd's comic strip. It does sound reliable to total security newbie, like I'm (total security ignorant?) :>

Your answer directly answers the question. After your math I must admit, that my password is weak! :>

comment Is fourteen characters long password really weak?
Once again, you have proven me, that this is very simple script and that there is no eight characters in a row requirement. At this point, I must admit, that I simply don't know, why I wasn't able to submit this form. Anyway, the fact is, that I wasn't able to register myself using English site and had to do this using Polish site. Thank you for your effort. Unfortunately, I have to accept the other answer, as it is more close to answering this question (is password weak), while your answer deals with their registration form only.

Also, please take a note, that English version of the sign-up form is quite very different from Polish one (which I used to actually register) -- overall form schema and error messages are different. This seems to be working basing on geolocation. I agreed on it in Chrome (my base browser) and now, each time I click on link in question, I'm redirected to Polish form. When I copy the URL to any other browser, I see English version of sign-up form.

comment Is fourteen characters long password really weak?
Thanks for your reply and pointing out my mistake. Yes, of course, I'm talking about 14 characters long password (I fixed title). As per my comment in second-to-end paragraph: In this particular example (Samsung Cyber Service Center) you are required to have 8 characters in a row. On second attempt, I used password onetwoTHREE4# and it was accepted as "very strong". I did not check their JS code, I'm only writing about end-user impressions. And no, we're not talking about server-side verification. I wasn't even allowed to submit the form -- all checking is done client-side.

Sentence in your last paragraph is holy and saint. It should be engraved somewhere. It is the base of modern world.
