I counted the number of passwords I need to do my job: 15, and I’m probably forgetting some. Retarded. Some of those have to be changed every month due to a security policy for idiots who don’t know how to choose a good password. And where do I store all these passwords? In a plain, text file, of course; or on Post-It notes scattered around my desk.

Then I have passwords for personal use, like email, bank card PIN, retail web sites, etc. Someone could easily take over my life if they knew the one code I use for all my passwords.
