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.

Update: Potch suggested just using "LDAPs". Used in a sentence: "I've been here for 6 LDAPs." I like that.
