Passwords... the end of the line

Just trying to sort the mess that is my passwords out and realised its time we junked them for something better...

Okay, 1 password for PN isn't too bad but there is then 12 passwords for work, upteen forums, 4 or 5 different email accounts, 8 website passwords, online banking, 3 pin numbers for cards, pin for two mobiles (work/personal), wep keys... Trying to maintain a sensible hard-to-crack without being forgettable scheme with that lot is impossible (without using the same/similiar) on all.

As I use three different PC's regularly and one is work's (and they're twitchy about installing anything not 'core') a password manager wouldn't work too well...

We need a public campaign to burn all passwords in public and liberate our minds from the chains of op (or de?)pression caused by trying to remember too many passwords, pins etc.

All my passwords are the same but with a different two digit number at the end.
Not ideal I admit, but I value my sanity.

Ah, I don't have any to value...

And no biometric really has a good enough false positive/negative rate for me to trust things like my bank balance to it Wink

I have no doubt that we will because my better half does the lottery every week. Wink

Those USB Fingerprint Scanners will hopefully take over. They are already I hear using them in some schools rather than having registration.
