Recently, I was discussing "best practices" when creating a password, and here are the "qualifications" I could think of:

- easy to remember or generate
- not the same as your other passwords
- not easy for others to guess
- more than 6 characters
- contains at least one of ALL these: uppercase character, lowercase character, number, "allowed" punctuation-mark

Can you think of any other "best practice"?

Thanks in advance!
