LastPass Is Pretty Cool

Friday, March 18th, 2011


I’ve been using LastPass for months now and have to say that I really like this product.  Keeping track of a gazillion passwords across multiple browsers and multiple PC’s was impossible before LastPass. Now it’s a breeze, my laptop, home PC and work PC are all synchronized automatically and the underlying storage of the data is fully encrypted.

You’ll note from the menus displayed to the left that there are lots of options, making this a fairly rich tool.

I highly recommend LastPass.

Easy Way to Convert a PDF to a Word Doc

Monday, September 28th, 2009

Here’s one of those free services that can come in handy when you need to convert a PDF file to a Word Doc and don’t have any tools around to do so.

PDF To Word is just the solution. Online, available anywhere you can get to a web browser, free, and simple to use. Just upload the PDF file, fill in your email address, and five minutes later you will receive the converted file in your mailbox.

I’ve found reasons to use this handy tool several times and have been happy with the results each time. It also supports RTF output for those with word processors other than Word.

Comes in real handy when you are cleaning up a computer to give to someone else (gets rid of any personally identifying information or sensitive things like passwords and logins).
