Unique Passwords?

Today's article at is one that the SQL Server community might find enjoyable. 

I may try to implement something similar in my next project …. or, maybe not!

Are there another other great designs like this that you've come across?  Maybe even some that you designed yourself?  Come on, you can admit it, let us know! I won't tell anyone.  After all, no one ever reads the comments …

re: Unique Passwords?
I like to use newid() and substring it. I get a new id every time. Some ppl complain that it doesn't have special chars, but if they are that concerned then they have a 3 try lockout and it's safe anyways.
