Passwords

If you’re having trouble coming up with new passwords or are constantly getting hacked, here’s some advice:

  1. Consider using a password manager. Most of them are really well made and cross-save securely on all your devices. They’ll make life so much easier, especially with the slew of online accounts we all have nowadays.
  2. Turn on 2FA (two-factor authentication) any chance you can. It’s annoying, but it’s a security feature that will save you a lot of headache and keep your accounts.
  3. Randomize your passwords. Using the same password for everything is very unsafe. Need some help dealing with this, see #1 for the best help.

Hello there! I'm a web developer in Louisville, Kentucky. I started on this career path by purchasing an O’Reilly PHP book from Barnes & Noble in 1999. Since then, my desire to learn as much as I can about web site building and server maintenance has grown. I love technology and what it can do to simplify our lives and make it more interesting all at the same time. Seeing a creative design come to life and bringing it into the web world is my favorite puzzle to solve. My server experience is based around launching WordPress-friendly servers — Linux (Ubuntu and Centos flavors), Apache, MySQL, and PHP. I have worked with various modules, extensions, installs such as ImageMagick, LetsEncrypt, Sass, LESS, and the Homebrew family of extension. My main love has been with PHP, and my CMS of choice has been WordPress since its inception in 2003. I find it flexible, secure, easy to design around, and so customizable. My strengths are in developing from-scratch plugins and themes for the WordPress CMS with a strong background in PHP and MySQL development.
