Every 3 months, we at Mozilla have to reset our LDAP passwords. The
system helpfully sends the first reminder 2 weeks before your password
expires, then the second reminder 1 week before your password expires
and the last reminder 2 days before your password expires.
Sometimes time passes by faster than you know and you end up with
a Locked out of LDAP account.
The 3 month LDAP password reset is such a large part of our lives that
I propose it become a standard unit of measure for elapsed time.
Used in casual conversation:
Pat: I haven't seen you before. How long have you been at
Jordan: I've been here for 6 LDAP password resets.
Pat: Oh, weird. I've been here for 7. Good to meet you!
Would you like a banana?
Jordan: Would I ever!

Readonly mode causes the site to ISE.

I looked into it. Turns out we haven't used readonly
mode in at least 4 LDAP password resets.
I think we just need to add a fake authentication
module. Easy peasy.
Used when joining a new group:
Subject: Welcome Jordan to some-group!
I'd like to welcome Jordan to some-group! Jordan brings
expertise that is invaluable. I'm excited! Yay!
Jordan: Tell us about yourself!
Subject: Re: Welcome Jordan to some-group!
I'm excited to join some-group! Hopefully I bring something
useful to the table.
I've been at Mozilla for 7 LDAP password resets, I like
top-posting and I make a mean cold brew coffee.
Looking forward to my first meeting!

Used in an email to everyone@ about departing:
It is with sadness that I tell you I'm leaving as of next
Friday. As you know, I've been with Mozilla for 32 LDAP
password resets and frankly, I'm totally out of usable
Sherlock Holmes story titles, so I'm off to new challenges.
I will miss you all.
Update: Potch suggested just using "LDAPs". Used in a sentence:
"I've been here for 6 LDAPs." I like that.
