Where do you prefer to store your passwords?

I have my most important ones memorized (and backed up on a piece of paper at home).
For others I currently use KeePassX.

And I saw an interesting project today: https://clipperz.is/ (it is an online password manager which can be installed on one's own hosting, open source and all).

Has anyone tried it? Maybe other suggestions? Comments on security?

I do this (in a nice bash wrapper) for generating per-site passwords:
Code:
openssl sha256 -binary <<<"$master_password/$username@$hostname" \
 | openssl base64 \
 | tr -d -c [:alnum:]

It works well, apart from needing that last command to "sanitize" the output for criminally brain-damaged websites, and having to deal with other sites that put arbitrary length limits on passwords (the most fun ones are where the change password and login forms have different limits...)
