    This means the following:
    1. You've got, say, three attempts to type in correct password
    2. You type wrong password twice.
    3. You wait 30 minutes and after that you will get three new attempts
    4. If you don't wait and enter the wrong password for the third time, your
    account will be locked until administrator unlocks it.
