    I like the key tattoo thing.

    That's why I keep all my passwords on a post-it note on my monitor.

    And a copy on the monitor at the library.

    How do we know someone isn't feeding us these already? D:

    The other day I saw A really neat way of remembering stupidly long passwords:

    Pick a short word / number etc
    Look at your keypad as if it's a slate / board
    'Write' out your word on the keypad in a way you will only know.

    For example, for the password 'GBA' it could be something like:
    98741236 14789532 14863
    or
    987412365 7415632 14789635

    etc. And you quickly have a super secure (in terms of brute-forcing, maybe add some letters if you want) password.

    All those sci-fi films and future tracking humans is gonna be true but thankfully I'm already 1/3 of the way through my life and I hopefully will be dead long before its fully implemented but even so its so scary how stuff like this is already being developed, I worry for the future.

    Also when coming up with a password, think of your mothers name, your pets name and the year you were born and use none of them. If you have trouble remembering a password, why not re-arrange your games and dvds so it spells out the password with the first letter of the game, for instance I set my PS2 games out like this:

    Red faction, Indigo prophecy, Clock tower 3, Killzone, Red dead revolver, Okami, Legacy of kain, Lego star wars

    People usually give me pills that make me forget - but now I can take one that only lets me forget?

    I can dig it.

    You can limit any bruteforce tool to use a specific set of keyboard strokes and you just told the world how to hack yours - by using numbers only. :P

    EDIT: Nevermind, I get your method now - you meant a phone-like keypad. :P

    As for the technology, here's an even better idea - implant yourself with a password that even you don't know. You won't leak it - it's in you. :P That's pretty nifty stuff that could potentially cut down on electronics theft - what good to a thief is a phone that only one user can use? Of course there's ways to flash electronic devices and go around passwords, but it's still a huge deterrent as not everyone owns the necessary tools or has the know-how to "white wash" the stolen gadget.

    I don't get how that works. How do you write something on a keypad "in a way that only you know"?

    look at the numbers and follow the order on your numpad.
    it's forming the letters :
    G =
    789 <- start from here and follow the path formed by the numbers, it's making the "G"
