I've been there, done that!

That's the time for a Byte-Bat. I had one when our first computer sat and glowered at us with just a dot for a cursor on a black screen waiting for us to read it's mind.

It was a kind of baseball bat made of soft materials so you could hit your stupid computer without anything breaking.

I solve the password problem by using Password Safe | Free Security & Utilities software downloads at SourceForge.net. I tell it the password rules and it makes up a random password that follows those rules. I don't have to remember the password, just the master password for Password Safe. I highly recommend it.

Do you think it would withstand breeches like this one (reported today)?

Yes. That security bug is serious. It involves bank servers and other sensitive data. But, it isn't able to open properly encrypted files like the ones created by Password Safe.

BTW, CNET gives this link Test your server for Heartbleed (CVE-2014-0160) as a way to check the servers to which you connect. I don't know how well that works and his server is kinda busy with a lot of people checking.

Edit: I'm not a security expert, so I assume it can't open a properly encrypted file.

Thanks, TL. You said: "I tell it the password rules and it makes up a random password that follows those rules."

Can you explain what that means? Since different sites have different 'rules' (like 2 capitals or 4 capitals) how can you set rules that will cover all sites?

Am I missing something? (I answer: Of course I am!)

I can set default rules and I can set rules for each entry.

Getting back to that image you posted the link to taxy, that was SO me when I had to create my password for the Hell Connector website. Himself could hear me yelling and swearing all the way from the kitchen to the living room.
