Keeping Track of Passwords September 3rd, 2008 @ 3:12 pm PDT
For many years now I have been delighted that the words “username” and “password” are the same length. A fixed-width font in a text file full of server addresses, usernames, and passwords therefore looks quite organized.
Dot Don’t November 21st, 2005 @ 9:11 pm PDT
What system are people using to create web sites that have .do files? It seems that every site I visit that employs this coding is slow, slow, slow. Men’s Health and Capital One both have sites built with tons of .do files and redirects and both of them drive me nuts.
Protect Images with .htaccess March 13th, 2005 @ 7:47 pm PDT
A few thousand of my hits every day are coming from some little geeks using an old web cam shot of my buddy’s as their avatar in forums.

DreamHost Setting October 10th, 2001 @ 4:18 pm PDT
I have MovableType running now and this blog, Works in Progress is a MovableType blog! I’m using DreamHost as my web host, and thought – on the off-chance that anyone reads anything here ever – that I’d note some things specific to DreamHost. The most important thing to note is that under DreamHost a user […]
Server 54 April 11th, 2001 @ 8:38 am PDT
The University of North Carolina has finally found a network server that, although missing for four years, hasn’t missed a packet in all that time. Try as they might, university administrators couldn’t find the server. Working with Novell Inc., IT workers tracked it down by meticulously following cable until they literally ran into a wall. […]
require www in URL April 6th, 2001 @ 11:00 am PDT
