Want to  generate your own and not count on something off your machine?

 

Have excel or compatible?

 

Try using

=CHAR(RAND()*(127-33)+33)&CHAR(RAND()*(127-33)+33)&CHAR(RAND()*(127-33)+33)&CHAR(RAND()*(127-33)+33)&CHAR(RAND()*(127-33)+33)&CHAR(RAND()*(127-33)+33)&CHAR(RAND()*(127-33)+33)&CHAR(RAND()*(127-33)+33)

 

Put in as many cells as you need as this is for eight characters randomly selected from all printable ascii (blank and control characters not included).

 

Some systems will accept all printable ascii and some will have some restrictions so you will have to see what rules apply for each.

 

 You will of course not be able to remember these.  And I tend to use 32 characters for critical systems.  Using a system to store these for entry.

I tend to use phrases or short sentences for the password if using ASCII

 

So "Eyes and Noes Feet and Toes" (my kid loves when I say that to her) might look like "3y3s and n03s feet and toes"

 

I say and type that enough where it doesn't take me that long to type in, and is amazingly secure.   I don't use that, but as an example

 

 

If I did that, then my password looks like this

There are smarter password crackers that will try words and common substitues.  The longer password may take longer. bit with valid or hidden words may not take as long.  Truly random will take the longest.

IN ASCII the non-control characters are the decimal equivalent from 32 (a space) to 126 (Tilda).  I skip space and ask for a random decimal number greater than or equal to 0 less than 1 and multiply by the range of printable ASCII chars and add the first non-blank 33 (happens to be a !) 

 

I am little concerned by seeing repeated strings in your values.  Something I don't thing I have seen.
