Password XP upgrade

Wednesday, June 15th, 2005

I know daddy’s password! It’s asterisk, asterisk, asterisk, ….

I’ve been using Password XP as my password manager. I bought it because it is capable of working on multiple computer (in a shared database) and its backup option was fast & simple. At the time I bought it, I thought I might use the option to install on a flash disk but I’ve never felt the need.

It recently upgraded. It adds support for FireFox and hot keys to insert passwords. So far, so good.

Maxivista 2.0 upgrade

Wednesday, June 15th, 2005

I stopped using MaxiVista a few weeks after I bought it because I really wanted a virtual KVM, not virtual multi monitor. Since then, I’ve been using Synergy, a free virtual KVM program. It works fine for long periods of time, but occasionally stops working, for reasons that I haven’t cared to explore. I just stopped & restarted the servers or rebooted. Otherwise, it’s been great.

MaxiVista 2.0 adds virtual KVM support, so I figured that I should buy at the upgrade price. I haven’t tried it yet, but I expect it’ll work fine. Then I’ll have the option to go KVM or multi-monitor.
