Don't ever memorize passwords after 6PM

I've lost several evenings of configuration tweaks and chat logs after getting into this with my upsized truecrypt volume couple of months ago.

And then I've rebooted once again and... see below for details. The next password was shorter, but I managed to forget it too, was bruteforcing it for couple of nights with simple bash script.
