Ideas for a strong password:

- a regex matching my laptop's LAN IP address
- a sed command to enable X11 forwarding in sshd_config
- a shell oneliner extracting all the IP addresses from ifconfig / ip a sh
- an awk command to print processes in D state
-

Chip in!

    You mean as regex:

    /127\.0\.0\.1/

    But with your own IP?

    @Codex404 Since when is 127.x.x.x LAN's IP address? :D

    That aside - I mean smth like (10.41.69.218):

    ^([104]{1,3}\.){1,3}(9|6|17)+\.[a-zA-Z0-5]18$

    Well maybe smth a little simpler than that, but you get the idea :)

    Patterns I use often, just with some noise that would also be sensible to me (i.e. easy to remember what is the noise I added and why in those particular places)

    @netikras I'm saying with your own IP :)

    Your example makes more sense though.

    a randomly generated password by your favorite password manager? (but I get that some passwords need to be memorable)

    @theuser Good luck making a 30+ symbols' password out of /dev/urandom and remembering it!

    @kleopi that password is probably the worst good password one can choose.

    - Draw some shapes on your keyboard like a rectangle + a circle and some zig zag lines.

    @gitreflog patterns! Love it!

    Though it might be difficult with different layouts on different computers.
