I don't believe a password needs to be either insanely long or too
complicated to remember.  Surely it only needs to be something
impossible to crack in a dictionary attack, yet based on something
memorable to you but unknown to others.  Personally I prefer my
password to be reference to a book - and you haven't a snowball in
hell's chance of knowing which book or what reference to it :-)  I
doubt if even my closest family would guess the book.
