I usually mix in a couple of nonsense words in them for more security (in case there's a password cracking program that's aware of xkcd 936)

I didn't know xkcd, thanks for sharing this! Random words are very nice, longer means stronger ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Sorry I am late, but this technique reminds me of another one, very similar : Diceware which looks like a very strong password generator as well !

Hi Simon, thanks for sharing! I like this one much more as it appears to be well studied.
