with the usual string of rules to ensure I would not remember it

I do have some sympathy with that - and anything which reduces the set of all possible passwords isn't good cryptographically either - no matter how trivial the difference might seem initially - the classic example was the German Enigma which couldn't ever encrypt a letter as itself - which gave the allies one lever into identifying messages.

The human side technique is perhaps to think in term of 'pass phrases' rather than 'pass words' though - say "I got up at 6 a.m." or "Babbage - 50 eggs for breakfast!" probably satisfies all their rules but should be reasonably memorable. (Obviously, please, no-one copy those examples for a real password!)
