What's Your Password?

My actual password is Herr Gambolputty de von Ausfern- schplenden- schlitter- crasscrenbon- fried- digger- dingle- dangle- dongle- dungle- burstein- von- knacker- thrasher- apple- banger- horowitz- ticolensic- grander- knotty- spelltinkle- grandlich- grumblemeyer- spelterwasser- kurstlich- himbleeisen- bahnwagen- gutenabend- bitte- ein- nürnburger- bratwustle- gerspurten- mitz- weimache- luber- hundsfut- gumberaber- shönedanker- kalbsfleisch- mittler- aucher von Hautkopft of Ulm

But because I can never remember if Ulm is capitalized or not, I just shorten it to p@ssw0rd.

The best passwords are a series of random words put together.

This makes a password not guessable by a human, too long to iterate over for a robot, while still being easy to remember.

There's something called Diceware which takes a list of thousands of random words and you're supposed to roll some dice to get a few words together:

That just generated for me this 6-word password (which I'm not going to use obviously):

Of course, you might just come up against INSANE websites that restrict you to using a short password... which is a thing I just cannot understand.

But that's where something like LastPass comes in handy.
