I’ve been using KeePass for a couple of years now and it makes generating secure passwords and retaining them safely very simple. Additionally it stores the web pages they may refer to as hyper-links. You can also run it from a USB memory stick and have all you details encrypted and to hand on the road.
I was after a simple method of importing my numerous internet passwords and ClockWork’s Firefox to KeePass Importer plugin covers this task nicely. If you have a lot of saved PW, and you use the import favicon option this takes a little time. One other top tip, combine this with Dropbox and you have a truly mobile synchronised Database accessible from the Android version of Keepass too! (or your iPhone for that matter)…
Lots of changes in the latest version.
Your password should be a unique string of characters that only you know and should also be a non-dictionary term (random letters as opposed to the name of your pet). Because we put so much information on the Internet, a strong password is all but necessary.
CPU-Z is a nice tool for confirming the internals of your PC…
CPU, including: processor name and vendor, core stepping and process, processor package, internal and external clocks, clock multiplier, partial overclock detection, processor features, supported instructions sets, L1 and L2 cache information, location, size, speed, and technology
Oh, you can post your specs online – Mine – and they have a forum banner option too.
There are several ways to ensure your machine can play most files you can throw at it; codec packs are the simplest. The Mega Pack includes codecs, Real & Quicktime Alternatives (so you no longer need install either of them) and MediaPlayer Classic, the K-Lite is the codecs only with reductions in the number filters as indicated…
Clearly they also provide a Win 7 64 bit version here, note that this supports 64 bit applications and comes with limited codecs. You CAN run this in parallel with the 32-bit version for fuller support.
The rather good and free CCleaner which removes the gash files smothered all over your hard drive has been updated with the following changes:
We love Windows 7: That’s the message loud and clear from people this week at the TechMentor Conference held at Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Wash. With Windows XP reaching end of life for support in April 2014, the plan for most organizations is to upgrade — to Windows 7.
I’ve had an Android phone for almost 2-years and I have pretty much settled on the software I use on it, I think I have reached the point where it does certain jobs for me and that’s it. In alphabetical order they are:
I have tried quite literally hundred of apps, but these are the ones currently present and worth having, though I would like to find something a little less quirky than ES File Explorer tbh. These are NOT the same as the apps I use on my Android tablet, where there is a considerable divergence due to screen size, chipset (Tegra 3) and ease of use. I’ll cover these another time.
“Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space.”
The arrival of Windows 8 would be likely to drive some PC makers and others out of the business because it put so much pressure on their sales margins, Mr Newell added.
I was going to write a little something about Instagram, but I cant…
As of 11:21 PM EST Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud in North Virginia went down, due to severe thunder storms in the area. The Washington Post reports torrential rains, “scary winds and lightening” and massive power outages in the D.C. area.
Apart from the frankly retarded changes with save & export, the later simply saves in whatever file format you chose to for is useless unless you are saving in .xcf, 2.8 is a nice upgrade to GIMP, especially the single window option which should remove the vanishing tools problem. Plenty of changes to this rather nice free programme.
