I prefer to use mnemonics / ancronyms derived from a phrase, then
add some numbers at the end as salt, eg, the phrase "The code that
never executes at all is the fastest." would become "tctneaaitf123"
- ie, I take the first letter of each word in the phrase, then add
123 at the end. Or you could use the 2nd or 3rd letters (skipping a
word if it does not have that many letters) - the point is there are
other ways to create relatively easily remembered passwords.
The code that never executes at all is the fastest.
