OpenConnect VPN on Mac OS X
View openconnect.md

Unfortunately, the Cisco AnyConnect client for Mac conflicts with Pow. And by "conflicts", I mean it causes a grey-screen-of-death kernel panic anytime you connect to the VPN and Pow is installed.

As an alternative, there is OpenConnect, a command-line client for Cisco's AnyConnect SSL VPN.

Here's how to get it set up on Mac OS X:

  1. OpenConnect can be installed via homebrew:

     brew update
     brew install openconnect

Password manager without a password manager
View gist:3334991

Prelude

Since password managers are big and complicated and I currently am pretty bored since I am sitting in a car for a few hours, here is a simple algorithm to generate resource-specific, unique passwords using a master password and no password database.

WARNING

As pointed out here: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4374888 this method is broken.
