KeePass Password Safe (journey into)

Searching on how to implement plug-ins for Safari, Chrome & Firefox (for mobile) for the Digital Wallet app for iOS (for a project here at current full time work at iDigital) I stumbled into KeePass. The plug-ins should provide auto fill functionality for websites in Chrome, Firefox and Safari (this is based from the 1Password app)

The great thing about KeePass is it's open source and it has available extension for Auto Form Fill for Chrome and Firefox. and the firefox extension is also open sourced.

The KeePass plugins available:
http://keepass.info/plugins.html

The source for the auto fill extension in firefox:
https://github.com/pfn/passifox/

For the Chrome extension:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ompiailgknfdndiefoaoiligalphfdae/details

The download for KeePass (it has ports for Linux and OSX):
http://keepass.info/download.html
http://keepass2.openix.be/
- I have to install MonoFramework in OSX
- then install KeePass after

For the KeePass source:

For the Keepass Android version source:

Macintosh Finder: Reasons for Slow Operation

I experienced very slow finder once in a while in the Mac Air 11" with OSX 10.7. After searching I tried this one. It seems to work things out:


TOPIC ----------------------------------------------


What could make the Finder run slowly?

DISCUSSION -----------------------------------------

A slow Finder is not caused by the size of the disk, but by the size of the
Desktop file. The size of the Desktop file is not directly related to the
number of files it contains, but to the number of icons and file comments.

The number of icons is related to the number of applications. Slow
operation becomes a problem for hard disks with more than 50 applications.
The number of comments is a problem only for those who add a comment to
every file and folder. This is typical with public domain software. To
remove all comments, you can rebuild the Desktop file in one of two ways.

- You can delete the Desktop file in ResEdit.

- You can hold down the Command and Option (aka Alt) keys while you start up your
computer.

These operations remove the comments and speed things up appreciably.
