    Random song title, random friends birthday, two symbols. Super easy to remember.

    The two factors in password strength are Length (x) and Character set (y) (x^y = number of possible combinations.) Throwing in a single symbold pushings your character set from 52 (lower + caps) to 93. A jump from x^52 to x^93.

    I have been using grc's(gibson research Corp) site for a while to generate server passwords. I do worry a bunch of horrible actors in a train station will hack the gibson though, hack the planet!
