I've been writing programs since I was 7 (Logo at first), though mostly in QBASIC for the first decade or so :). Now I am a serious programmer at a great little software company, where I do full stack web development, though my true love is front end.

@jeff I was not involved in the implementation, and was not aware of this technique. But then, though I am working on reading the entire Internet, I hadn't reached this Coding Horror post yet.

Which is an enormous real-world problem, which I can attest to after having seen our support department deal with many issues related to this since our platform moved to case-sensitive passwords.
