I use the following script to generate passwords: http://www.cs.ait.ac.th/cgi-bin/phi-soft/gen-multipasswd I could send it to you as Perl script, so you could generate 500 passwords in one run, or you call the web page enough number of times. The password is generated as a psuedo Markov chain on probability based on some pieces of English text (FreeBSD man pages). It adds at least 2 numbers, one non alpha-numerical sign and turns some letters into uppercase. At first the passwords were very English like "words", now it is more confusing. non-alpha-numerical characters are choosen to avoid conflicts with the softwares I am using it: samba, FreeBSD login, MySQL...
