On Password Strength
+6 Vote Up -0Vote Down
XKCD (as usual) makes a very good point – this time about password strength, and I reckon it’s something app developers need to consider urgently. Geeks can debate the exact amount of entropy, but that’s not really the issue: insisting on mixed upper/lower and/or non-alpha and/or numerical components to a user password does not really improve security, and definitely makes life more difficult for users. So basically, the functions that do a “is this a strong password” should seriously reconsider their approach, particularly if they’re used to have the app decide whether to accept the password as “good enough” at all.

Quiz: Enabling an application for MySQL Replication
+1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

A little challenge for you… given an existing app that does not know about separate master/slave connections, and you want to enable working in a replicated infrastructure. Simply redirecting all SELECTs to the slave connection will not work. Why?

Hint: there are at least two reasons, depending on other factors. There may be more.

Comments are set to be moderated so providing answers will not spoil it for others. I’ll leave it run for a bit and then approve all comments.

Using Page Fragments
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Hi all,

Today I'd like to continue a blog series in which I highlight Web application tutorials for NetBeans 6.5. A few changes have been made to tutorials, among which is the featuring of MySQL as the database of choice.

seventh entry in the series will cover the tutorial, "Using Page Fragments".

In this tutorial, you use NetBeans IDE 6.5 to create an application that includes two JSF 1.2 (Woodstock) page fragment components. One fragment holds the application's logo. The second fragment holds links for navigating between the pages in the application.

A new look to a popular tutorial. Cheers!

Top 10 Reasons Why Digsby ROCKS
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

If you haven't heard of Digsby yet, you have probably been living in some kind of a virtual cave or have no friends. Digsby is a multi-network instant messenger application, similar to Trillian, Pidgin (GAIM), or Miranda. I said 'similar', so what makes Digsy special? Reviews I read so far don't give the real reasons and don't dive into the features in depth. Instead, you get a standard load of marketing BS and in the end to you, the user, Digsby may end up being "yet another IM program." Some reviews describe certain features, but so far I haven't seen one that highlighted THE MAIN REASON why Digsby is different. And may I preface it with: finally somebody got a clue. I never before wanted to write about any other IM client,
