Picking a PIN
With concerns about security it's important to choose PIN numbers that are not easy for people to guess. For instance you wouldn't want to use your phone number, street address, or bank account number.
But it does help to have a number that's easy to remember. If you're old enough to have lived before automatic dialing and e-mail you might use the phone number of your best friend in grade school that you used to dial daily, or the street number of a relative to whom you always sent thank you notes. Other possibilities are numbers from the score of an important game, the date of your senior prom, the date you met your spouse, or numbers from the license of your first car.
