Hi Guys!toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
that's the trouble, i can never think of one which you could say was master secure, and if i did, i'd probably have forgotten it about 10 minutes later.

Tom, unfortunately you're correct, which is why you mitigate the risk by making that master password very ver'r'r'ry secure. Granted, there's risk in everything when it comes to password management, but since there are so many ways a password, even a long one, can be obfuscated, it pays to remember just one fancy one instead of half a hundred shorter ones. Substituting punctuation symbols for letters is a common method, and since there are so many symbols and so many ways to use and combine them, even brute-force attacks won't be of much use.
