SecEd released

I officially released SecEd into the public domain today, you can find it here.

SecEd was written using Python 2.7 and the wxPython 2.8 package. It allows you to securely edit sensitive data. It also has a feature that allows you to rate the strength of your password.

Because it is written in Python it is portable and because it is open source you can use it to learn about wxPython and/or teach me more about it.

Have fun!

 

Find gcc/g++ header files and/or contents

There have been a number of times when I wanted to find out where an include file was in the default compiler search path and there have been other times when I wanted to find out which header file contained a specific setting so I created this simple little bash script that does both in the hopes that it will be useful.

iPad2 Model Numbers

I was looking for a simple a comparison of iPad models but could not find one so I created one by gleaning information from various sites. I cannot vouch for the accuracy but it should be pretty close.

Spammed into oblivion

My Drupal implementation kept getting spammed into oblivion. I was not able to upgrade – possibly because the site was hacked so I decided to switch to WordPress.

I have not done any posting for more than a year because of the spam. It is really annoying and serves no useful purpose.

Interestingly much of my work in cloud architecture/development is focused on security but like so many other things, it is easier to find time to address security issues at work rather than at home.
