I use Keepass/KeepassX (depending on the platform I am on). It has a built-in password generator with parameters you can set (length, special characters, spaces, etc...).
Below is an actual password I use, generated out of Keepass.
I imagine 90% of your updates come from noscript. The author essentially just releases updates every few days just so that he can drive up views to his site and try to make money from it. I guess that's his right, but it's annoying as hell and it's basically just made me stop updating noscript.
about:config, then search for "noscript.firstRunRedirection" and set it to false.

It is a slap in the face to PC Gamers what Infinity Ward has done with this title. No dedicated servers, no server admin, cannot kick hackers, no mods, no maps, no community, no customization, no respect... The author is right if we as a gaming community if we do not stand against this sort of behavior, this is the future of PC Gaming. I'm boycotting until they listen to their community of players and address this madness. I encourage everyone else to do the same." Link to Original Source

No matter how I try educating colleagues, family & friends, I still receive them and am now resigned to the fact that you just can't help some people. One of my explanations of why forwarding these emails is a bad idea was that they are a perfect harvesting ground for spammers: a very high percentage of the addresses will be live. This, it turned out fell upon deaf ears. If you're stupid enough to believe that Dell will give you a free laptop then you're probably the type of person that believes that a Nigerian general wants to give you $150,000,000 (ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS!!!!).
As a bit of an experiment, I used a few tools (grep, awk, etc) to parse my Maildir for any emails that appeared to have been forwarded and extracted anything that looked like an email address. As one would imagine there were a good few (thousand) email addresses. Most of these email addresses belong to innocent by-standers. The real culprits are the people who forward them, and it takes only a little more effort to extract only those.
Part of me has decided these people who waste bandwidth, time and have caused me to lose my hair deserve to pay. What better way to do it than to publish their email addresses for spammers to harvest?
Of course, this is unethical, but is it actually illegal? By sending an email urging others to forward the content, are they not actively pushing their details into the public domain?
I wonder what will happen if The Pirate Bay is closed down or turned into a site for legal torrents. A lot of the other torrent sites relies on the Pirate Bay tracker. What other large, public bittorrent trackers (not just.torrent mirrors) are there?
Not to argue with the point you are trying to make, but I have always wondered exactly just that. Is there any other use for a stereotypical ski mask other than armed robbery?
I know this is antecdotal and your question may have been rhetorical, but I live in Wisconsin and wear a ski mask when I am clearing my driveway and sidewalks with my snowblower. It is too damn cold to be outside (most likely with blowing wind) for 35-40 minutes without a mask.
I have a Sony PRS-505. I use calibre to manage it. No need to deal with any DRM at all. Calibre will format text and RTF files into the LRF format for the reader. You can also use variousonlineconverters to convert from PDF to Word and then use Word/Write to convert to RTF or plain text..
