This has worked out better. I've started using mnemonics to remember
each system's unique part. Muscle memory!

I have 3 passwords. One for no security(like the password for the quest 
account), one for forums or minimal security, one for secured 
stuff(everything with money). Now... I think I got a little inspired from 
your post and I might actually start generating passwords for each different 
domain, based on a password mixed in some way with the domain name. For 
example password is password, domain is eBay (make a mnemonic buysellbuy), 
mixes password: buypasssellwordbuy /*will have to think about something 
better*/ (and then 1337 it), final B () iPazZC3llw0R7bA1  because I have a 
general password combined with something easy to remember, and leeting it, I 
believe it would be hard for someone to find it, especially because different 
people have different expirience and will probably have different mnemonic.


Thanks for the idea as well ;)
