How many passwords?

We’re all probably signed up on dozens of different message forums, online stores, news sites, etc. and it’s virtually impossible to use a different password for each, even if you use a password storage program (or even your browser) to remember each. I have a series of five or six regulars that I use, and I find I use the same or similar passwords on similar types of sites (message forums all generally use a variation of a certain base password, for instance). There’s one password I use that’s probably my best since it’s just a combination of numbers and letters that I’ve used for almost 15 years… I used to use it for some BBSes and I still occasionally use it online. I don’t have a mnemonic device to remember it, it’s just burned into my brain after all these years.

How many different passwords do you use?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
