[ale] How do you store your passwords?

I use Keychain on my PowerBook. It's encrypted and does all the work

comparable things. I believe I used GNOME's Keyring application in the
past. But I can't remember.

The encrypted text file on a memory stick sounds like a good solution too.

pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it
is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become
drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted."
