Q: How can I make a secure password that I can actually remember??

A: With passgen! Passgen creates secure yet pronouncable passwords, so you can have some way of remembering them. Samples:

Now I don't think those are hard to remember!

To get passgen, go to http://www.linuxbuilt.com/passwords.php. The whole untar,make,make install procedure applies here. See the checkinstall howto if you're confused.

Or, if you trust me and want a .deb, I attached the .deb I created (I don't remember now if I actually created a .deb or checkinstalled it...)

I will usually have a password like: tmwamsmtsbas5psstd4a3hta3ht :

The mate was a mighty sailing man,
The skipper brave and sure.
Five passengers set sail that day
For a three hour tour, a three hour tour.
