Problem solved?

If there’s anyone out there with any knowledge of things IT, could you please tell me if this has even just a hint of truth in it? Because if there is, that’s an awful lot of brain power that I would really need for other things besides coming up with and memorising difficult-to-type passwords. I am a rabbit of very little brain, you see. I guess I’d be able to tell fact from fiction myself if I were the IT goddess people at work think I am but unfortunately that epithet was earned with a few successful googling operations. Shocking, I know.

    Well, it’s certainly true that real words with common substitutions like zero for o are very easy to crack. Best passwords are simply random combinations of (upper and lower case) letters, numbers, and special characters rather than based on any real words at all.

      Ah but that’s the thing: what is the best password that is still relatively easy to remember? I do all sorts of combinations, but remembering them, and coming up with new ones and memorising those, is something of an effort. Not only a tiny brain but an old one as well :)
