A relaunch of a website should always be carefully considered. Do you adjust a little at a time or make a massive change all at once? As with most things, it depends.
The only constant is change
Consider what the web looked like when Tantramar Interactive launched this site in 1997: Read more of “Tantramar Interactive Inc. website relaunch” →
I regularly see friends, clients and family members who use terrible, terrible passwords. I don’t know how they sleep at night, to be honest, and convincing them to do something about it isn’t easy.
I was planning on writing a longer post about this, and even have a full outline prepared, but three events pushed me to publish early:
- 1Password (for Mac, Windows, and iOS) is on for 50% off for a limited time (and is absolutely worth every penny, even at full-price) — and buying version 3.0 for Mac now will get you a free upgrade to version 4, which is coming soon. Go buy 1Password now; I’ll wait.
- A free, 1-page password cheat sheet (150 KB PDF) was released by Joe Kissell (from TidBITs Publishing) for those of you who still need convincing (you know who you are). This is a highly-condensed version of…
- Take Control of Passwords by Joe Kissell has been updated to version 1.1 (updated to include, among other things, features introduced in the latest release of 1Password)
Joe says it all better than I can, so visit the Apple Mac App Store and/or iOS App Store, or buy 1Password directly from Agile Systems’ website. Then go buy Joe’s eBook (which is available in PDF, ePub and Mobi formats) if you want to understand the risks of using passwords poorly and how to eliminate them without complicating your life needlessly.
Don’t be a victim.

Recently I was helping a client who needed to update their domain name, and we ran into a common issue: no one knew the password for their domain registrar’s account. This is an all-too-familiar scenario that’s easily avoided.
Let’s take a look at what’s at stake and some recommendations on handling your company’s domain names. Read more of “How long should you buy your domain for?” →

As the owner of a MacBook Air, I was looking to keep a lid on the size of OmniFocus’ backups directory. As an example of how this can get out-of-hand, on my iMac this directory had nearly 900 files (dating back more than 3 years), and had swelled to over 70 GB. This was choking my Time Machine drive to death, and clearly wouldn’t make the tiny, SSD on my MacBook Air very happy.
