Use Robo Form. It has a Password generator that works great.

http://www.roboform.com/

Back in the old days the merchants of the stores had a code.

BLACKSMITH=1234567890

They would put in the lable with the code and then the price and you could always tell at a glance how much the store spent on the Item for sale. So if you wanted to put an Item on sale you could always know the reference price.

Generally I take a phrase I like, could be from a viral youtube video. And then I turn it into a password. Capitalizing randomly, and using leet numbers wherever possible.

Example: take the rick roll thing.

"Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down"

Easy to remember? Create yourself a little MD5 program. Just type your password in it and MD5 it then copy paste.

The more you create a process to create the password, the more of a pattern it exhibits.

I use random strings. After entering them a dozen or so times they are memorized.

You cannot believe how many people do that, when hotmail got hack and the the passwords released on the nets something like 40% of them were 123456

My password for insecure stuff is something simple like a word but with numbers on the end.

Password for SSH connection to my router/computer and remote desktop connections or WPA-AES keys tend to turn into 64 bit random hex.

For example (HEX)
7483CD9059E64816AF73DA40207F4C5ED61C1DAD17DBB66B89 8D1AC551B6C8F5
(ASCII)
*dST7$L6.h\\6&PLm1>ca{PL:R/1Q@OM%H6"eJiEc:Thz!b9Mu+;YGTS<;|&qy[p

Of course I don't actually remmber that, I encrypt the password with truecrypt and just decrypt it when needed, the truecrypt password is simple but is encrypted with AES so it is virtually unbreakable and since it is on a harddrive it would be pretty hard for someone to get to it even if they could break the password.

I use the first 4 letters of a websites domain followed by a prefix word that is the same for every one of my forum/website related logins, excluding facebook which has it's own password that i also use for steam and msn.

For games i use two different passwords depending on my mood.

Also i have an extensionless file with all my passwords noted on it hidden in a .rar file in a jpeg on my pen-drive.
