KeePass for multi-page forms and shared domain accounts

I start using KeePass this week after watching a video on keyloggers from DEFCON and after I was made aware of how powerful AES encryption can be after watching a reverse engineering discussion on Wannacry attack last week by Computerphile. Background asides, as soon as I start using KeePass, I run into two significant drawbacks with browser integration. After… Continue reading KeePass for multi-page forms and shared domain accounts

A date with Ubuntu

A few days ago, I decided to let the trusty, also rusty, yellow-stained Vaio go. Having served me for over three years and a half, the laptop had reached the end of its usefulness as circumstances demand that I have a new system to meet with my new interest: app development.
