baekdal.com: The Usability of Passwords

My websites got hacked over the weekend and the first thing that I did was to change all my passwords to something stronger.  I have no idea if it was the passwords that were compromised, but at least it made me feel better doing something.  After my flurry of password changes, I was facing passwords that I had to cut and paste to login like xBEP7xf19!M.

I was talking to my friend Dale and he suggested this article about creating passwords using a combination of three words that you can remember.  Using three uncommon words creates a password that is nearly unbreakable.  Sounds a lot better than the password I created.
