Now that's a problem for me... somwhere I am and somwhere I'm not allowed to use <space> in the password... Also some passwords recognise special characters and others don't...
Basically I can't use the same password everywhere!

an advice: Password Safe, it's free and you will never ever have to remember more than one pass in the future.

Sort of. I once forgot the four figure PIN code for my mobile. Then I replaced it with a seven figure code and I've never forgotten it since. :crazy:

I have a couple of passwords, but I never forget them.

The smallest is 15 characters.

I envy people with big passwords, I just can't be bothered to sit there typing out (or thinking up) long passes.

Well my smallest is 8 characters (still from the days when that was the most possible)...

But I used some passwords and haven't really needed them for a few years. When I returned to those sites I still had an account (they wouldn't dare delete me) but I simply forgot the password

BTW: My method is this
Username: Something
Password: Something I easily associate with the username

Example:
Username: Leech
Password: PoppinG BlooD (comes from blood sucker; sucker = lo-ly-pop; now just twist them a little and here you go)
Don't bother guessing though, because most people wouldn't even know what most of my usernames mean anyway

Looking at your example... it doesn't seem so simple...

I have a really bad memory, so i use less password that's possible!
For example i have no PINs for my mobiles...

To remember my bancomat code i use some gestures... and i look like a when i use it...
