small ppi fonts would be illegible

Then they're doing it wrongly. :)

No, they aren't. "ppi" here doesn't stand for "points per inch"; it stands for "pixels per inch."

There are always 72.27 points per inch. Always. (Unless you're using PostScript, in which case there are 72 points per inch.) So "small points-per-inch fonts" is essentially meaningless, and is not what they meant.

Comment Re:Dumb question, but where should we store them? (Score 1) 116

The way that I deal with idiotic requirements like this is to append a four digit date in MMYY format to the end of the PW, and just update to the current date. So if I am required to update a PW this month, the new PW will be clownhorsepenisstaple0916.

Ah. I mis-remembered. Thank you for the correction. Yes, I encountered some code once that a coworker had written which had indentation like 0x09 0x09 0x09 0x09 0x20 0x20 0x20 0x20. I wanted to pour coffee on his keyboard. God, that shit is awful to deal with. Spaces are for alignment, not indentation.
