Cross-site Scripting (XSS) – OWASP

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/01/12

When I look what is possible with Cross-site Scripting (XSS), then I wonder how you can defend your site to any and all of these and future attacks.

Coming from a desktop application and back-end background, the jungle of the web keeps being overwhelming.

Password requirements by @NicvantSchip – via Koushik Dutta – Google+

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/01/12

Brilliant: password requirements by @NicvantSchip.

“Your password must contain at least 8 letters, a capital, a plot, a protagonist with good character development, a twist & a happy ending.”

And Dilbert via Thomas Kear:

“Starting today, passwords must contain letters, numbers, sign language and squirrel noises”

Mac OS X GeekTool: like Windows BgInfo on steroids.

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/01/12

A long time fan of BgInfo on Windows, I was looking for a Mac OS X replacement.

And I found one: GeekTool is on steroids compared to BgInfo (:

Much more than I needed (plenty of add-on scripts too), but more than enough to get some simple text displayed.
