I need a Regular Expression to require two upper case characters and 2 numbers in a password of 8 to 10 characters.  I have found a lot of examples for at least one number and at least one Uppercase but cant seem to find or figure out  the above.

positive lookahead assertion.  it is useful if you want to match certain characters without following any order.  repeating the regex twice will force the assertion to repeat twice.
