    Keep the main ones in my head. The others are in an excel, passworded itself. Let's hope I don't forget the one for the excel sheet. For others that I rarely use, i find myself using the "forgoten password" link quite a lot. Also using a similar naming convetion means I can recall most of them.

    Like Trust, RoboForm.

    You'll be amazed how much more secure (strong passwords, never use the same one at two different places) and efficient (click a toolbar to login) you'll be.

    One of my very favorite tools!

    I also use Roboform and wonder how I ever lived without it. Though it does make logging in to ShareASale accounts difficult. I'm not sure why it doesn't quite work there with their new merchant interface...

    I use Firefox with a master password set.

    As for Shareasale, I have this page bookmarked

    http://www.shareasale.com/a-login.cfm

    I'm sure there's a similar one for merchant accounts.

    keepass is great and very secure. There is a no-install portable version too.

    Me too. I even went whole hog and got the RoboToGo so that when I'm with family out of state I can check my stuff on their PC. Laptop deprived.

    I just use "password" everywhere.


    On the mac, 1Password is the equivalent of roboform and is a very nice app.

    I use a system that is very easy to remember, but gives me unique passwords everywhere I go. Still, I use Wallet (for Macs) to keep everything noted and secure just in case (mostly in case I die and my wife needs access to any of my passworded stuff).

    I have something like the eikon but don't utilise it for passwords yet. Basically it's a USB memory stick with the finger print encryption but works with IE to finger-print you into your membership sites. It's one from transcend that also alows you to encrypt suff on your hard drives too.

    I met with IBM yesterday and I begged them to make the x300 a tablet.

    I like their new consumer line though the U110 and their new 17 inch gaming machine.

    I would have paid $5K for an X300 tablet ... The U110 is waay cool but marginal dif from my X300.

    passwords
    Good password manager is http://download24.com/1password-windows/. You can try it for free. It's simple and you use only one password.

    I use a variation of the same password, depending on how secure I need it to be, like my bank as opposed to Twitter.
