I heard about LastPass on CNET. I don't use it though, I just let Chrome save my passwords for me which is encrypted with my Google password.

Andrew, have you heard of Disqus comments? I suggest you look them up. They are a real nice comment system. I use it at my website. Disqus comments generates web traffic to a site, and is just a great discussion system.
