An 8 character one can be cracked with the correct tools in a fairly short time, but statistically a 12 character PW would require a battery of computers working in tandem for years to break. A 64 character PW, though virtually impossible to crack, is over kill. And I bet you have it in a file someplace so you can copy and paste. If you do then it could be 6400 characters long and it will get cracked.
I keep it on an unsecured 8" floppy buried at the bottom of my cat's litter box.

Def overkill and there are plenty of open networks in my area but I'll work around it. Thanks for the replies.
