    I don't suppose using a yellow sticky on the monitor counts ?

    In any case I find that KeyPass (also at sourceforge) has met my needs for quite a while

    It depends...if you can encrypt it: why not? :D

    I have found the fold/2 and rot180 method stops the casual observer but not the determined cracker ;)

    adding some random numbers to your code makes it a lot more difficult :) if that's what you mean?

    sounds familiar :D ;)

    well not quite, I just suggesting to fold it in half and turn it upside down.... after all if its written down there is no point pretending that it is secured

    Actually little encryption apps on handheld devices (or on a usb mem stick) do work well for the passwords you want to carry around with you

    The handhelds (like the old Psion 5) were rarely networked so your passwords were nicely isolated away from the computer and easily accessible

    I don't think there is a really good solution (yet) other than commiting things to memory and having some mnemonic tags to remember it with

    I have one encrypted cdrom with all my passwords and purchased software..

    I had to do it twice cause the first time I forgot the code (happened quite a few times with those Fully Encryption Disk Programs...) I won't use those anymore...

    the passwords I login to @ Wilders, SB, .. are all written down cryptic so to speak :) But if you know me, it's breakeable, just like you said.
