Forget your passwords

Sxipper lets you log into any website with a single click. Sxipper saves you time by keeping track of an unlimited number of usernames and passwords and it has a useful feature called personas. Sxipper is different from most password managers or form fillers in its use of artificial intelligence to figure out how to properly fill in web-based forms (with your data) that it hasn't seen before. In other words, when you visit a web page for the first time, Sxipper can often figure out where your data should go.

Here's a nice review of Sxipper:

I like the fact that it is cross platform - runs on Linux, Max and Windows.

How Comcast Silently Blocks your Internet traffic

I am a Comcast subscriber and for much of the time I've had this blog, I have hosted it on my computer connected to the Internet via Comcast. I was shocked to learn about the following Comcast traffic-management scheme thanks to the article at http://machinist.salon.com/blog/2007/10/19/comcast/.
Bless the Associated Press for unearthing, through careful and diligent investigation, Comcast's shameful, hidden Internet traffic-management scheme.
