Folsom Street Fair 2008

Here is a collage of me and my former roommate Jessica, built by Picasa 3, from Folsom St. Fair. It is a leather themed street fair of which I was working one of the beer booths for the San Francisco Fog Rugby Club. The photos were taken by Dave, a friend of the club's president.

Tip for efficient username and password organization

creating a cross-platform database of all the websites you use and then make it accessible from anywhere. This system is nice because you do not have to grab an attached file from a self addressed email every time you want to update your database.

What you will need
Dropbox and keepass.

is a cross platform program that creates a virtual folder that syncs between all of computers. when you move or update files within a dropbox folder it is automatically updated across different platforms

you enter your username and passwords (or any other credentials) into a file that is locked by a master password. I've been using if for years and find it much easier than having the website email you a replacement password.

Simply create a keepass file and save it in your dropbox. Get in the habit of entering the passwords and usernames into keepass and you will get access to them wherever you are at your machine(s).

I actually will write down the website in a planner and go back into keepass and update several websites at once. It's hard to believe all the sites I have set up an account with over the years.
