This is exactly one of the reasons I use FireFox. I have it remember all except my banking passwords/usernames.

That's why I have a top secret wallet

I don't allow it to do that for security reasons. Call me paranoid.

I keep them in a text file called PASSWORDS.TXT on a shared drive on my system visible to the Interweb.

I have 4 or 5 different passwords that I use almost exclusively.

I try to pick similer usernames for everything, and I have a standard set of passwords (as I make a new one every 6-12 months, I keep an encrypted list so if I login to an older account I can still find the password). All my passwords are 8 charectors of random numbers, as well as upper and lower case letters.
But overall, no I dont have touble remembering.

Use Excel and encrypt it.

yeah, this happened to me earlier. i finally figured it out though.

I just write mine on a yellow legal tablet which I
keep beside my computer. No remembering necessary.

I do the same at the banking/deposit firm where I work. You wouldn't
believe the codes and passwords they expect us to remember.
We have to keep track of corporate access on-demand accounts,
secret bearer accounts, some government hush hush off the books
accounts, etc.
I just write 'em all down next to the account name and number and voila',
when I need them, they are at my side on my much thumbed through tablet.

Same here.

e-mail
AR15ARMORY.com
Myspace
FieroLoki's website

Banking I don't use all that much.

I have found using "4321" for my PIN and "PASSWORD" for my password makes it much easier to remember. And use the same ones for all my accounts.

YMMV.

Not me. Been using Dead Corpse for so long I should almost register it as a legal alias.

my true participacion on this board.

I use this free password database.

www.cygnusproductions.com/freeware/pc.asp

Now I remember 1 username and password that gets me into the encrypted database containing lots of my usernames ands passwords.

Too easy!

Check out Roboform. It remembers all your passwords, forms, can generate passwords, can save safenotes, and it encrypts it all for you. Free version has limited number of signons and full version is inexpensive. I have used it for several years and very happy with it.

I'm a 50-year-old divorced man. I can't begin to remember all the shit I have forgotten. If I knew how bad it really was, I would be depressed.

Wait a minute....I am depressed.
