What can I say... I agree and did say that they
shouldn't be written down. However, Frank mentioned
that the password might be written on a scrap of
paper somewhere (along with his CC details!) which
is obviously an awful idea.

So, if you're gonna write 'em down, keep 'em locked
up. I know people who keep their passwords on sticky
notes on their monitors *sigh*
