Password updates

Spent the day changing all my passwords. Because I’m a stickler for security, all my passwords follow these rules:

  1. 12 characters
  2. At least one Capital letter
  3. At least two numbers
  4. At least one special character
  5. Cannot be a word, combination of words
  6. Cannot be pronounceable
  7. Must be unique. Yes for every website
  8. Cannot be remembered (unless you have a photographic memory)

Here is an example: 23@CnBOfB*iF

Because these passwords are impossible for me to remember I use a password manager. How do you handle passwords?
