Finally watched Transformers the movie

transformers.jpgWOW!! After waiting my whole life to watch this movie I finally managed to catch it with my nephew today. The plan was to watch it at the IMAX theater in Times Square to experience the whole life size effect but due to bad sits we had to revert to GSC instead.

144minutes of pure entertainment. My eyes were glued to the screen from start to end trying to soak in every bit of detail. The movie was filled with just the right amount for drama, humor and action scenes which get complimented by the excellent graphics.

Megan Fox, new to the big screen managed to look hot throughout the whole movie working side by side with Shia LaBeouf and guardian Bumble Bee who transforms into an awesome yellow Chevy with racing stripes.  Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson played good soldiers working together with the autobots.

The autobots with their land vehicles were really something. Optimus prime, Mr.nice looked awesome as usual with his blue, red and flames to finish. Megatron on the other hand look liked he came straight from hell. Brutal totally brutal.

I came out of the movie with the feeling of total satisfaction. I was expecting as always a bad adaptation of a good comic but I was wrong big time. All the hype was totally worth it. The best part is, rumor has it that we will get 2 more sequels to the movie to look forward to in the future. I am planning to watch it again but in true IMAX.

Awesome movie, that was me and my opiniion being a die hard transformers fand since I was a kid. What about you, what’s your opinion?

My password manager

I have always been using KeePass on my notebook as my password manager till recently when I moved back to KL. Read on to find out why.

The problem;

I have 3 windows based machines that I use regularly. 2 at home and 1 for the road. They all have access to the net. Firefox with Google’s browser sync extension is what I use to keep my bookmarks, urls and forms synchronized between them.

All the login details for my banking sites and secure work sites are stored in my trusty KeePass. When I get back I normally work on my desktops. I have to export the KeePass database from my notebook and import it into my into my notebooks and every time I have a new login added I have to repeat the export/import process all over again. This prompted me to start seaching for an alternative solution. Online password managers!!

The Solutions,

I found 2 possible solutions. PassPack and Clipperz .

PassPack

PassPack has been around for some time now(Dec 2006). It is feature packed,secure and I love the simple,functional and clean interface. The learning curve needed to get used to PassPack is almost 0 to none.

Some of the features that stand out to me are;

  1. Auto Lock – PassPack will automatically save and lock my passwords with the packing key whenever the page if left ideal for 2 minutes.
  2. Anonymous – I never provided my email addresses.
  3. Password generator – cool built in password generator.
  4. Scramble – Scrambles my password field on command when someone is passing by. On by default.
  5. AES – AES is the encryption method approved by the US Gov.
  6. Import/Export – Ability to easily import and export my password list. I used this in import from KeyPass.
  7. PassPack Blog – Covers everything about PassPack.

I have using PassPack for a few days now and it’s awesome!!

Clipperz

Clipperz is the new kid on the block who is out to give PassPack a run for it’s money. It boosts a colorful and simple interface but I feel PassPack has a simpler interface.

Cool features;

  1. Cool interface – The interface is simple with a good color scheme.
  2. Direct Logins – Single sign on. Allows me to log in directly to a site directly provided yo have the site credentials already saved.
  3. Bookmarklet – I can easily add a new website to my Clipperz.
  4. Anonymous – No email address require.
  5. Encrypt by browser – Data is encrypted by my browser before being sent to the Clipperz servers. Clipperz only stores my encrypted data.

What’s lacking;

  1. Import/Export – No import feature yet. Export only exports to a printable version. I have to use the offline copy feature to save an offline copy.
  2. Mozilla only – Only mozilla based browsers supported. Mozilla, Sea monkey and Firefox.
  3. Java script – Clipperz uses opesource based cryptographic functions. Read more at Ajaxian. Who will I blame and take to court when my passwords are exploited?
  4. Direct Login – Honey pot for hackers to reverse engineer? I think so.

Clipperz is a good tool. They are not quite there yet but I believe with other solutions out there like PassPack the developrers at Clipperz will surely push the envelope on futher enhancements.
