  • Hi

    this is great. I think you made a point with the color coding, but there is an easy way around: Just use the standard addressing method of spread sheets: A….AZ for the column, 1…99 for the row

    Well, columns are already marked… I just see no reason for rows to not be. It’s not much of an inconvenience with this amount of rows but I it is a downside. :)

    I think it’s a lot easier and safer to float over to http://www.random.org and use their free ‘true’ random password generator.

    It will allow you to generate lists of passwords as either text or html files. You can have it generate lists of up to 100 passwords at a time. Passwords can be up to 24 characters in length.

    Crank out three or four passes of 100 each as text files. And then feed them into an Excel spreadsheet. After that just slice & dice them up as needed. And should you ever run out, you can always go back and generate a few hundred more.

    One nice thing about this generator is that it eliminates easily confused characters such as lower-case L and the number 1. While this may reduce the theoretical complexity of the passwords slightly, it’s really not that significant a difference in security for everyday use – unless you’re responsible for arming nukes… ;-)

    Cool tool!

    Also valid approach, but strong aspect of PasswordCard is that is that you can lose it and it won’t compromise your passwords. It isn’t like that for a simple list of passwords and you need some mixing system for this… Which is exactly what PasswordCard offers.

    There are many ways to generate strong passwords, it’s storing them what I find more interesting here. :)
