DescriptionThis will allow you to use the website version completely free. It also gives you access to fill your passwords from the browser extensions. It does not provide access to the desktop software or mobile phone software.Premium gives you access to your passwords from all versions of Password Tote, including the desktop software and mobile phone versions.

Synchronization between browser extensions and utilities is fast and does not confuse the user in navigation. Importing files is fast for the csv file dedicated to dozens of passwords.
A very good aspect was the compromise solution for custom import with a generic csv file.
The utility generates this file and you can fill it with the necessary login data for your web sites.
The other csv import options did not work for me, I guess the problems are incompatible with the other files exported by the dedicated software.
I used it with YubiKey and it worked very well. It's the only utility that allowed me to connect with YubiKey, the other utilities demand a premium version.

How to enable YubiKeys and password tote.
  • First log in to your Password Tote account. 
  • Click Account, then Manage YubiKeys. You will arrive at the YubiKey Management page. 
  • Click Add YubiKey to register your YubiKey with your Password Tote account. 
  • Fill in the required details. If successful, your YubiKey will be displayed in the list as shown in the screen shot below.

The tool Noodl for design and web development.

This tool will help you understand something about data structuring, node building, web development and design.
This application comes with interactive lessons and documentation.
Note: I tested some lessons and are not very easy. Thus, some links between the nodes do not appear with all the labels, unless they are made inversely, in this case on the work surface the links are no longer one-way (with the arrow arrow) but only punctually between the nodes.
It can be downloaded here for the following operating systems :
  • Version 1.2.3 (MacOS)
  • Version 1.2.3 (Win x64 Installer)
  • Version 1.2.3 (Linux x86 64)
Let's see the default interface of Noodl application.

The JetBrains I.D.E. software .

I tested the JetBrains Rider, the emerging .NET I.D.E. from JetBrains in the past.
Is good and this is new into the I.D.E. area of development.
What is this software? 
The JetBrains Rider is a new .NET I.D.E. based on the IntelliJ platform and ReSharper.
First I take a look into my Fedora distro to see it is something about JetBrains:
[root@localhost mythcat]# dnf search jetbrains

I download the archive from the official website. I extract all files ...
[mythcat@localhost ~]$ cd Rider-171.3085.362/bin/
