The Solution to Unique Passwords

This is not the bookmarklet. This is where you will find the bookmarklet. WordPress doesn’t allow the hosting of bookmarklets. Click here.

  1. Drag this bookmarklet to your bookmarks (put it somewhere you can click it easily, and consider renaming it to something shorter)
  2. Whenever you need a password, click the bookmarklet
  3. You must always enter the same Passphrase and you should keep it secret
  4. You’ll always get the same generated password for the same Passphrase and Domain
  5. If you need a password for a service that spans hostnames (e.g. mail.google.com, docs.google.com) you’ll need to enter the same thing in the Domain popup for each (e.g. google) so you get the same password
  6. If you click on the password field before the bookmarklet, the password will be automatically typed in for you

BIND9 vs. CNAME RRs

BIND 8.something broke support for having a CNAME at the top of a zone, which was used widely. Supposedly, the RFCs never supported this “feature” and ISC decided to fix the “bug”, recommending an alternative: SRV RRs.
