Generate Secure Passwords

Category: Interesting Links,Site Updates,Technology — Posted by Michael at 2234

I just updated Michael’s Guide to Choosing Passwords with a new service from Steve Gibson’s (of the Security Now podcast) site.

The following is an excerpt from Michael’s Guide to Choosing Passwords
A good place to go for a totally random password is GRC’s Password Generator (www.grc.com/pass). This website generates a totally secure, unique and random password everytime you refresh the page. It will generate a 63 character password. If you need a shorter one, just grab as many characters as you need.

Make your own snowflakes

Category: Interesting Links — Posted by Michael at 1929

You don’t need to get out paper and scissors to make paper snowflakes anymore. Just head on over to Make-a-Flake and you can do it digitally now. When you’re done, you can download it, e-mail it, or anything else you want to do with it. Pretty cool!

If you make a really good one, put it in the comments even. 😀

Add a clock to your site

Category: Interesting Links,Technology — Posted by Michael at 1843

If you want to add a clock to your website, you can do it easier than ever now. You can also add countdown timers. Just haed over to www.clocklink.com. You just paste some code to embed a Flash animated clock into your site. There’s an advertisement on rollovers, but it’s not intrusive at all and worth it for the free clock. I just have to find a place for it on my site now!

Thanks to Amber MacArthur’s blog for pointing this out!

Emeril’s restaurants are reopening

Category: Cooking/Food,Interesting Links,Randomness — Posted by Michael at 1029

A real sign that New Orleans is getting back on it’s feet after the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina is that Emeril Lagasse’s restaurants have announced an reopening schedule. The first one will reopen in December.

Check out the details here.

Jesse James, restauranteur

Category: Cooking/Food,Interesting Links — Posted by Michael at 0909

I just read in the Emerils Blog that Jesse James (of Monster Garage on Discovery Channel and proprietor of West Coast Choppers) is opening a burger joint in Long Beach, CA. To answer the obvious questions, yes the burgers will be shaped like iron crosses and yes the waitresses will all have tattoos. It will be called Cisco Burgers.

Sign of the times – What’s a film camera?

Category: Life,Technology — Posted by Michael at 1158

A few days ago I went to a birthday party for my friend’s daughter. She’s three years old. I was taking photos of the event with my digital camera, but someone else was using a disposable film camera. The birthday girl ran over to her and asked to see the pictures she’d just taken as she pulled down on her hand to see the back of the camera. I thought it was pretty funny to see that in her mind all cameras are digital cameras. Maybe film cameras are going the way of vinyl records. (You know, those black frisbees that your parents have in the basement.)
