I use a blowfish encrypted plain text file.  The trick is I have Vim
set to decrypt and recrypt blowfish files automatically, and a shell
alias to it called 'pass'

So, I just type 'pass',  enter my one master password and hit / to
search for whatever I need.  Quick, and I can carry it around on a USB
stick and never worry if I loose it.  Since the encryption is openssl
it works on any Unix type box I come in contact with.

For low risk web stuff I use the Firefox built in password keeper and/or Open ID
(e.g. some forum or blog somewhere, where if somebody else got the
password it's no big deal)
