SIGH MOMENT….Episode 6

by Stella Forth

Okay, so this Sign Moment is on me.

Password should be between 6 to 16 characters.

So I type in…ABCD12

6 to 16

When you review the definition of between, it really is the “chasm betwixt two numbers”….so had I added one more character I would have been FINE. But yesterday,wasn’t a great day for me. and I didn’t need to SEE the number 6, carry out the minimum of 6, and find out that some grammar genius is being an arse-y by getting all technical on his use of “between”.  Next time, put Password should be at least 7 and no more than 16 characters” K? Thanks.
