It's a genuine question to see what number span people are using to
remember random numbers.

Why would I ned to memorise it? It is on my phone.

I can, however, remember a nine long string of random characters that
was a password I had use to get online in the early days of dial-up
modems. I had to type it in every time and the daily repetition burned
it into my memory.
