Passwords must be long, not based on dictionary words, never repeated, and not recorded where they can be gotten at. You can’t do it by memory.

This program addresses the recording problem by not recording passwords. They get re-computed every time, based on two separate factors each of which is unlikely to come into the hands of miscreants. The first factor is a series of one or more password “seeds” or “salts”. You specify a tag for it and the seed itself is a block of text that contains at least 64 characters. The second factor is a transformation of the web site address. That transformation should be easy to remember, fairly easy to type, include odd capitalization, use multiple unusual punctuation characters, have a secret word or two and never, ever be written down.
