I must say I agree, this is an exercise in wasting our time. There is no merit in a complexity that makes the word un-memorable. Personally, as I now cannot remember the new password, and have to have it saved instead, it is a lot less secure here, and I will no longer be so readily logging in from a machine of opportunity. Given I have all my savings quite successfuly protected by a 4 digit PIN, I;m not sure what the benefit is of using such a complex system to prevent people to login and pretend to be me... good luck to them.
The downside of a system such as that proposed by DZ, the special scrambling would need to be handled at browser level, or you are locked to a machine with the special scrambling code on it, and if that was done then the browser maybe capable of being subverted.

Well the best way is to keep the hashing code on your USB key, perhaps with a pin access! Then you can use any computer.
