I keep an encrypted spreadsheet with all of my passwords and I rotate them every quarter. It's a bit of a pain to do, but I'm the worrier-type so I sleep a little better knowing my passwords are mostly useless in the wrong hands.
According to LinkedIn, my password wasn't compromised. If anyone here did get theirs taken, did LinkedIn send you a form email regarding this breach?
edit: I'm now looking into these password manager sites (Lastpass, Keepass, etc). Thanks for the mention, speedracer.
