I have a Facebook account. I log in a couple of times a year. Yesterday I have got an email from Facebookmail with the subject "Someone may have accessed your account". I have clicked on the link and tried to "secure my account". But after first click and than "continue" on the Facebook I get a feedback like this: "An error occurred while processing this request. Please try again later."

  2. What should I do?

Comparison of Mozilla Firefox 4 and Microsoft Internet Explorer 9

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 03/21/2011 - 22:37

I have just installed MSIE 9 and Firefox 4 rc2 on my computer.

User interface on both browsers are similar. Firefox'es home-button moved to right of url bar. Just back-forward buttons are visible. Tabs are on the top. Url-bar are shorter.

Javascript performance on both systems are similar. Some tests with jquery gave Firefox more points. But Firefox still needs more ram than msie.

Both systems support HTML5 and CSS3.

The visual difference between MSIE8 and 9 is more than the one between Firefox3 and 4.

Firefox let resize textareas.

Filezilla and plain-text clear, unsecure password storage

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 03/17/2011 - 12:44

Everyone knows FileZilla FTP-client programm. It is fast, easy to use and offers most used functions for a good ftp-client. And it is open source & free. But there is a big problem: Filezilla stores passwords in a very unsecure way. Filezilla stores passwords of recent servers, passwords of sites in site-manager in plain text.

Files (and path) storing passwords:

Path for Windows XP/2K: “C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\FileZilla”
Path for Windows 7/Vista: “C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla\”
Path for Linux: “/home/USERNAME/.filezilla/”

What is a good password?

A good paswword is:

- at least 8 char long
- includes letters, CAPS and numbers
- never repeated somewhere else
- cannot be found as a string on a search engines, Google finds 0 result for it
- cannot be found in any dictionary/database exists on the world
- nobody incl. your wife can guess / estimate it
- easy to remember for you

To do this build a long sentence, take the first chars of words, combine with usename-userid and service u logging on, encrpyt it with a formel just you know.

Submitted by n8coder on Tue, 02/23/2010 - 12:06

First visit and download the true version (32 / 64 Bit) for your OS (Mac / Windows / Linux)

Attention: at this time I could not get 64bit Plugin (... .8BI) works on 64Bit Windows7. But when I copied the 32 version of plug in I coult get it run on both 64 bit and 32 bit CS4. Also use "ICOFormat-1.6f9-win" instead of "ICOFormat-1.93b1-win64" below.

Extract files to folder (ICOFormat-1.93b1-win64). There is one .8bi file and gpl license, readme etc.
