Quick random passwords

I’m sure there are lots of password generators out there, but a quick way of achieving this at the command line is something like


cat /dev/urandom | dd count=1 2> /dev/null | base64

Then copy and paste as much as you need. The result will be fairly unmemorable, but apart from OS login passwords which need to be typed, most logins can be automated, eg by using user:pass@host style URLs.
