    That's not a sentence fragment. It has a subject and a predicate, so it's a full sentence; the password must be, or exist. Not only is it a full sentence, it is true, however uninformative it may be.

    Can't be. The BIOS is using a fixed width font (compare the widths of 'i' and 'm') and yet Comic Sans is a variable-width font.

    A full sentence ends with a punctuation mark, does it not? It is a full clause, but it is out of context.

    Sadly, you are entirely correct.

    However, beyond mere grammar, there is the fertile field of epistemiology. I feel that this is an area as yet unconsidered by "Error'd."

    If your password has expired, and therefore "must be" -- which is an entirely reasonable assumption -- then is it true to say that "before it expired, it might have been?"

    And what of the new password? Must it be? Might it be? Should it have a choice in the matter?

    These are deep waters, and I suspect that popping up a "dialog box" with a single "OK" button is the best alternative to drinking yourself to death in a Parisian cafe on absinthe.

    On the other hand ... I kinda like Parisian cafes.

    We have some HP access points that prompt you to "Press specific key" to interrupt the boot sequence when the bootloader is loading.

    I'm assuming that's programmer humour.
