I recently updated all my service passwords to independent 14-20 character long passwords with mixed case, numbers and symbols, etc. which I got from http://www.pctools.com/guides/password/

I generated them in batches of 3-5 and saved them in a keychain secure note for reference before changing the service passwords.
