Forgot your password?

After a while, they'll add something to detect that number, so you then just move it to the middle of the word. And if they get wise to that, then just repeat it - still easy to remember, something like "Passw00rd!", "Passw11rd!", etc. And of course you'll need one alternate base word to swap in when they limit you to "no repeats" within 13 changes.
Another tip is to just write down your password, but write it in a "masked" fashion - like Pxxxxx, giving you a letter or two as hints without giving away the password in total.
