    Here is a tip I heard somewhere for making sure you use different password for each site: use the same root and add a letter or two from the website domain (e.g. first and second, or first and last) somewhere to the root.

    For example if my root is 'pass123' and if I use first and second letter and append it to the end, then my buxr.com password would be 'pass123bu', and my yahoo.com password would be 'pass123ya'.

    It doesn't have to be first and second, and it doesn't have to be appended to the end. Just choose your own rules and stick to them.
