Use color to obscure text

"Not to hijack this thread, but..."

I use lastpass (which is free, unless you want to use it on your iPhone too), which I found to be superior for cross platform ease of use to KeePass. It's built into the browser so integration doesn't vary from platform to platform. KeePass is great for storing and managing passwords, but manually syncing the password file + not integrating the same on different platforms just made it a pain for me to use.

That said, I agree whole heartedly with the poster that keeping a local copy of password (in an encrypted archive or disk image) is smart planning. I also think the idea of storing the passwords as white space, is a nice way of preventing shoulder surfing should you have to rely on your local copy.
