Yes, I have! It's easy! Just sit down and think out a system for your new passwords - e.g.

1st/2nd chars "ao"
3rd char: first char of ccTLD/gTLD
4th-6th: §k%
7th: first char of domain name
8th: last char of domain name

So for typo3.org your password would be:

Write it on a post it and put it on your LCD  - after a few days you know your system.

Of course, if anybody knows several of your passwords, he/she might find out your system - but IMHO this is a) quite difficult and b) not worse than always having the same one..
