Useful bit of info via Lifehacker: “How I’d Hack Your Weak Passwords” You gotta think seriously about the kinds of passwords you use for the many many web services you are connected to. Like the man says,
“Hackers, and I’m not talking about the ethical kind, have developed a whole range of tools to get at your personal data.

(Ironically, the best protection people have is usually the one they take least seriously.)

Or, you can try out a service like SafePasswd to generate one. Just remember to add a 2.
