Journey to a more secure password strategy

Journey to a more secure password strategy

Security on the internet is many things, only some of which we as end users can control. As web-developers are evolving into a state where they are more focused on security, some bad practices are slowly but steadily dying off, while others unfortunately keep living on; such as "my site doesn't need https".

Nogle gange, må man undre sig over, hvad det kræver at være "gadget-ekspert". jeg blev via Windows 8 i Danmark gruppen, gjort opmærksom på Jylands Postens gennemgang af den nye macbook pro. En gennemgang foretaget af "gadget ekspert" Torben Vognsen. Chokeret må jeg sande, at ordet "ekspert" tydeligvis har ændret sig henover årene. Windows har ikke en chance Torben Vognsen gennemgår den nye Mac book, men kan alligevel ikke dy sig for, at give Windows 8 et par usande ...

Adding old posts, fixing javascript issues and adding Captcha!

Today I sat down and finally took on the task of adding my old blogposts from when my blog was running "WordPress". The problem in converting the old posts into Blogengine.net was the export I made back then, was using WordPress' own extended RSS format which BE.net doesn't read.
