Used to run his hand under peoples desks and find bunches of them with passwords written on.

I remember once I had to go to our IT department because my account was messed up at work. My friend that works in the department asked for my password and I replied "123" he was like "really funny Kat what is your real password". I was like no joke that is it...it kept me from being the one to write it on a post it note (hehe)

Since I've been phished once and have been through all the Identity Theft paperwork and complaints, my passwords are long and only known by me from the past. I keep all my passwords in a notebook that stays in my safe.Keylogging is almost impossible to detect but can be done. I change my major passwords every 90 days also. After all those calls and writing to the FTC and many others? I never heard a word back. I got LifeLock now and feel much safer as they constantly monitor these things.

I don't use the same computers here at home to get online or do work on. I have so many accounts for various systems at work that have to be changed every 90 days, that like you, I just write them down and store them in my safe at work.

The last place I worked in IT tech support was a small local Government office with about 100 staff. Often I'd get to their computers to fix something and they wouldn't be there but I could often work out their passwords from what was written on post-it notes or other things around their desk. Most would use a formula, so once you worked it out, you knew how it would change each month.
