Spore, Electronic Arts, IT Rants, caps, swearing, probably. 

Today in "Tiny moments that make your inner IT person die a little":

Recently I bought Spore (First through Steam, which didn't work, then through .... ugh... Origin, but whatever.) and of course I also wanted to use the online functionality, but for some reason it didn't accept my (correct) origin login.

EA "Help" sites are a mess and completely pointless, but post one mentioned that they had to change their password for it to work, because "it blocks some special characters".

Sounded fishy and my password was all ASCII, so should be cool. Unless...

...

The password was TOO LONG! Because it had 21 characters. TWENTY-ONE CHARACTERS WAS TOO FUCKING LONG!!!

I can't even... (T-T)

@minx … Tbh ist mir dieser Effekt in den letzten Monaten bei den verschiedensten Webseiten immer wieder begegnet (*hust* Arbeitsamt *hust*), so dass ich wenn Logins nicht gespeichert wird oder es sonstwie weird ist, gleich mal das <20 Zeichen PW ausprobiere. :yikes:
