    Perhaps you are thinking of Markus Kuhn's OTPW?
    "OTPW is not compatible with and is not derived from either S/KEY or
    OPIE. It is a completely independent and different design, which I
    believe fulfils my functional and security requirements better."
    It prints you a page of one-time passes. These are independent of
    one-another and chosen in random order. To protect against theft of the
    sheet, it also uses a constant (memorised) password. An attacker has to
    both steal the sheet and eavesdrop the password to break the scheme.

    "The  rules  of  programming  are  transitory;  only  Tao  is  eternal. 
     Therefore you  must contemplate Tao before you receive  enlightenment."
    "How will I know when I have received enlightenment?"  asked the novice.
    "Your program will then run correctly," replied the master.
