There are different ways to make passwords, one of it is random
way. Purpose is to protect access to some digital resource. The
purpose is what is important. You don't need a computer to construct a
password, computers are new in that regard. Use pen and paper. For me
is not convenient with pen and paper in home and office, but in a
public Internet point I would not hesitate using it.

Apart from all hypothetical discussion none can predict the next
password given by (rcd-password) function. 

Purpose is fulfilled.
