    In my head, of course :)

    It's because of my work mostly.. A lot of different things requiring passwords. If I didn't reuse some of them, the number would easily be somewhere around 100.

    12-15 passwords all in my head. But I bow down before Nodsu, I could never remember that may without resorting to writing them down.

    Got 19 emails and 3 passwords. One is totally defunct, one is barely used, and the last is: A) stupidly complex (30+ totally random letters and numbers that I remembered) and B) used for everything. Basically if you ever guessed that password, you'd control all my internet accounts.

    ~15 Emails - 3 used regularly, the others were basically used 1 time only (for newspaper/craigslist.com ads and "questionable" internet signups requiring email validation (reputable sites such as TechSpot have my real Email) ;))

    PW's - I'm not authorized to disclose that information.. hehe.

    however, I will tell you that they are all random alphanumeric (no words, names, patterns, consecutive numbers, etc... and all memorized of course ;)). they'll never guess/figure them out with any brute force technique ;)

    5 emails, enough passwords :D

    I basically have 3 passwords, and my passwords are mix and matches of these half-random words/numbers, which form random looking alphanumeric passwords.

    My techspot password of course, is not a big issue, and therefore protected by one of the 3 basic passwords :D

    just for the heck of it, I'll hint you one of my numeric passwords: it is X^16, where X is a random number, and I memorize a chunk from there. That way, I'd just need to remember a number, and where in the sequence. It can also be inverted, or taken in a particular order (every second one?). Good numbers to use is Pi and e (helps that I've got both of them to 1000 digits sitting next to me, for some reason totally unbeknown to me).

    Now, if anyone manages to get into my bank account, pls don't tell other people how much I owe the bank :haha:

    I have about 8 in active use e-mails and a bunch of old un-active but still usable emails.


    Passwords? Also I dont feel like I should say.
