passwords

I groan when I have to create yet another username/password account for some diddlysquat thing. Yep, love keeping track of it all.

Most password managers and web browsers will now generate and save one for you. If not, this works well:

You can mix/match/modify things from the three boxes partway down. I also date every creation and reset to know when things are getting old. Keep a safe backup somewhere in case of device failure.

Some people also like complex, yet memorize-able, pass phrases. There are many methods.

    cat /dev/urandom | tr -dc '[:alpha:][:digit:][:punct:]' | fold -w 25 | head -n 10
