Stop resetting your passwords, says UK govt's spy network

My employer has a similar 90 day policy.

I find it easiest to keep the first half of the password constant and the second half the name something current to me.

I ran through work/rest/play as the 2nd half over most of 1 year, closed out the year with mars....

I've found I can revert to the start of the password list every time I get a new laptop though so it must be local hashstore rather than at network level.
