I have around 100 passwords for various websites and the like. Keeping track of them used to be a pain but it is now quick and convenient. I'm going to describe how I solved this problem with a simple secure solution you can implement for yourself with a 28 line bash script.

Merge Joomla sites
Merging two joomla sites into one
This comes up as a job every now and again and its a bit nerve wracking so here's my quick hackers guide to doing it. Don't expect to follow this verbatim but it should help you get the job done. You will need to be working at the linux command line and familiar with mysql client. Let me know if there is anything that needs clarifying or explaining further.
If you need my help, don't hesitate to contact me!

Space really is the final frontier
I love nature and I love the environment. I've dragged my family to a beautiful corner of the world here in South East Queensland where we can walk from our door into rainforest (complete with a great variety of snakes and wildlife), gum forest (complete with koalas) and even the beautiful and contradictory 'dry rainforest' that adorns the higher parts of the local mountains.
When I hear people talking about the environment, I can never resist pointing out that the only hope for us is... space. In response they generally look at me like I'm a bit strange but I'm used to that.

Saying goodbye to Microsoft Windows ...and hello to Linux with ubuntu
I've been programming and working with computers professionally since 1983. Ever since the dawn of Microsoft with their buying up of QDOS and the subsequent appearance of Windows, I've admired their ability to market and promote software. When they bought QDOS it was an acronym for 'Quick and Dirty Operating System' which was immediately changed by Microsoft to 'Quick Disk Operating System' and thence to 'MS-DOS' and promoted aggressively to OEMs (more or less creating the term in the process if I recall correctly).

Editing articles in Joomla 1.5
Articles can be created and edited using the browser built in editors. Keep the html as simple as you can. Editors have a nasty tendency to insert specific font information etc. and this will come back and bite you if

Applying JUGA to article sections and categories
This is a proposal for me to write a helper back end component for JUGA that will effectively allow the access control over articles to be applied at the section and category level avoiding the need for updating the JUGA site items each time an article is added.
