Password Generator in Keepass tip

keepassPassword Generator in Keepass tip, there’s a great password vault called Keepass I use that has a great option.  You can setup the characters used in generating passwords, and exclude characters like lower case L and the number 1 for instance.   Here’s a look at the exclude characters list I have used since 2000 or so  gijloqsyz1GIJLOQSYZ0  to make things LOTS easier done when sending passwords to users and to avoid the “Is that a zero or and “O” in that password” and that will save you time.  Keepass doesn’t store information in the cloud, it stores your vault locally on a USB stick of your choice.  http://keepass.info/ is the URL , click Downloads, and the Professional Edition>Portable  

Download this ZIP package and unpack it to your favorite location (USB stick, …). KeePass runs without any additional installation and won’t store any settings outside the application directory.

Guy sold his first website in August of 1995, and has continued his web solutions company offering design, development and deployment, usability or support services since. His previous work experience as the marketing director for an ISP, radio sales, television news announcer, have all have helped to build the company. 19 years plus online doesn’t hurt a bit to be a web developer.

Thoughts on 404 Not Found error pages

Found a website that’s sending 404′s to the website homepage, that is when someone requests a URL that was moved, changed on the new site, they’re going to the homepage. Here’s a good explanation of why that’s a bad practice, and if you’re doing that you should change your ways:

default-logo_miniYesterday, I bought a USB 3.0 drive for my computer, since it has 4 3.0 ports and they’re 10 times faster I thought it was time.  Got home, plugged in the drive and it didn’t work, wasn’t detected.  After testing on another computer, where the drive worked fine, I mentioned about that this morning in the Google+ hangout for TechAndCoffee  within minutes one of the fellows found a link (shortened via Goo.gl) http://goo.gl/cVYRgM  that had an update for my computer’s bios.

It worked, I now can use the 3.0 16GB USB drive as intended, thanks to Ed this morning at Tech and Coffee

Google Rolls Out Major Panda 4.0 SEO Update

Google Rolls Out Major Panda 4.0 SEO Update from B2C site here: http://goo.gl/vzjCqT  Do take a minute and readup on this new algorithm update from Google called Panda 4.0

It helps to know what the main focus is, or at least how it’s explained in the article that are things we’ve already known are not good, duplicate content and short content pieces.

The article says to avoid copying other peoples content will be a big step in the avoiding duplicate content ‘game’ and to not have duplicate content in your site. NOTE:  Check that your dynamic sitemap tool isn’t creating duplication by adding 2 links to the same thing in your sitemap is one thing to check.

As for ‘short’ content pieces, I”m likely the most guilty in that regard, but will try to do better.

Thanks http://www.business2community.com for sharing this article by Jeff Evans @ http://www.business2community.com/author/jeff-evans for more of his articles, I suspect they’re good ones since this effort was great.
