The title How I got a sign to share on my car was started with seeing @username on a car’s back window. I knew that was something I had to do, under the “Ideas are not meant to be thought, but lived” So I first searched locally and was quoted over $100 for a decal, I then went back to Google and found one online for less than 16 dollars including shipping. I had to have a bit of help with my order, and the phone rep was great! I will happily share that URL, you simply need to ask.
Password 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

http://www.facebook.com/guyrcook.webdeveloper the warning message made my phone ring once when a customer at the local computer store had website problems, the store referred their customer to me to sort it out. Their issue was more involved than this post has room for, so in the facebook page I add content into, (the link above) I’ve posted:
Hope you have time to review this list, several good catches are available here. http://managewp.com/wordpress-plugins-october-2012
On the subject of logins and security, Simple Login Log performs exactly as you would expect by keeping a log of all login attempts on your WordPress site.
now that’s a list in need. Having just updated to 3.3 it’s good to know that developers of some of the popular plugins that I use already have got the updated versions available, right now. This would be a good time to check that all your plugins are up to date with WordPress 3.3
Today I”m installing the trial of Fireworks CS5 (own CS3 version now) the download size is 498MB, wow remember the day when I’d start a download that huge (in the days of dialup) and then just go to bed and install it the next morning. Times have changed, now the “Adobe Download Assistant” says about 30 minutes, lots faster than when downloads took about 7 minutes for each MB of file size.
The installer started, says the total install is 1GB (that took a few minutes more), the startup of the trial asked again for my Adobe ID (that I entered into the Download Assistant already…oh, well. The program has a link that is http://tv.adobe.com/product/fireworks/?trackingid=FBMQH&pss=fw_11.0_win_en_US_trial_0_FW_20040226 an archive of videos for using Fireworks.
Next, clicked Help>Updates and there were some for the CS5 trial that I’d just installed. Peeked at the list (wait and be surprised like I was) the updates will run for several minutes. 3 different adobe applications had updates, required closing CS5 to continue (yes that’s a clue)
The cost of upgrading is $149.00 from CS3 to CS5, the full price is $299.95 50% savings these days is attractive for sure.
