@fribbledom i have heard the best way for people is 4 or more randomly chosen words, for a computer use a password program.
This one is a decent explainer of how password cracking _actually_ works and what makes a good/bad password:
I do two things:
1: https://keepass.info/ to generate passwords too complicated to remember (Win/Linux/Android/..iOS?), and store all my PWs.
2: https://sourceforge.net/projects/pwgen-win/ (sorry windows only...) for memorable passwords (e.g. for keepass) -- mix and match schemes, aim for >80 bits of entropy, then make a truly random sample.
