On the topic:
Some humor: http://bash.org/?244321
Some news that's not as funny:
RockYou.com had all 32 million passwords exposed.
Me, I use "pwgen" to generate random passwords for each service. I then
store them in plaintext in a text file on my laptop, though that's just
because I had some data merging problems with using my password manager
(Revelation) a few months ago when I edited the data on two computers and
didn't sync them up quickly enough.
My mind is a potato field ...
