if they can figure out my passwords, they deserve to get into the program...

I use a different Latin noun in a variety of cases...nominative, genitive, dative, accusative and ablative.... I change it around.... and I change the noun frequently....

You know when you have to verify that you are a human & Captcha gives you a random word and/or # to type? That's where I pull passwords from. The words are so random & abstract. They work great as a password. Just have something secure in place to remember the password.

I don't use any of those but, I remember a broker in my old office used 'password' for everything and I never understood how he was never hacked! 

I use complex passwords and change them routinely.
