Hi,
If you want to have a deterministic wallet but are afraid of forgetting your passphrase, you can now use one of your file to create your wallet
Moreover, a thief will have to check every file on your computer to find your generated keys

Download Fillet and run "./fillet.py --file ~/me.png --keynumber 1 --size 10 --pwpath ~/bitcoin/pywallet/"
All flags are optional except --file

Pywallet is used to convert your key to a Bitcoin address

When you will want to import a key, pywallet will do that easily

It's not recommended obviously Wink
Using a short text file is also a bad idea

Every not common, binary file will bring huge security

Except that the thief could then either dl every non-common file or run the program on your machine relative to it. I think I would only do this if the file were on a removable drive. But then there's the chance of losing the file.

A passphrase is still the best option, imo.

I don't think he will download my 1k+ photos, and my 2TB external drive full of musics and films
With a 100MB file, it takes 5 seconds to calculate one private key


Use a 700MB movie, start at key number "your birthday+your phone number"/"your credit card number*your age"/"whatever" instead of 0, and nobody will never ever find your private key

That gives a whole new meaning to "private  key".


 Maybe it should be called privates key instead......
