brew install flac ffmpeg cuetools # ставим нужные пакеты

How to copy/paste your password in PayPal's change password form
View gist:3654637
PayPal blocks copy/paste actions in their "change password" form,
citing some irrelevant security issues as the reason. That's a
load of crap, and they know it -- disabling copy/paste makes it a
lot harder to use a decent password generator and a lot easier to
screw up your pwd when retyping, especially if it's a long one
(as it should be!).
So, here's the quick'n'dirty way to use an externally generated
password in your PayPal account:

Using a Reverse Proxy for Rapid Prototyping

Using a Reverse Proxy for Rapid Prototyping

Note: This will be a contrived example, but hopefully illustrates some real-world trade-offs.

Example scenario: Suppose you're an independent web developer, and a client asks you to prototype a redesign of their website header. You'll be paid for your time, and if the client likes it, you'll be hired to do the full implementation. Your incentive is to show the client a quick, functional demo of the updated header. The problem is that quick and functional tend to be mutually-exclusive.
