Is LiveJournal storing passwords insecurely? - 2007-10-02 19:07:10
I was in LiveJournal's code and it looked to me like they were storing the passwords insecurely.

Here is more info on LiveJournal password issues.

You know what I JUST remembered... I remember hearing that LiveJournal is Open Source, I could probably find out for sure if I'm right, then submit a fix. Hopefully someone beats me to it 'cuz I have to go to sleep soon so I can get up for work.

Motive Blog

I have several blogs, all with different topics. One of the reasons I haven't been updating them enough to meet my satisfaction is that there is some overlap in the subject-matter, and I am often confused on where to post to.

I decided recently that I should start burning through my list of articles to write, and to help this along, I wrote a cross-blog posting system. It's pretty nifty because it posts to a WordPress v1.5, WordPress v2.0.3, and my own custom blogging system that I wrote for Codeaholics.

My personal site will generally serve as the aggregator and (probably) get every article, along with links out to each of the blogs where the article was posted.

Here is a breakdown of the different blogs and what they cover:

  • - the aggregate of all posts. This is my life as a whole, so it will have every article, and will have little icons indicating which blogs the article was posted to.
  • Motive Blog - productivity and the glory of man! Basically this blog will exhalt all the things that Motive Force LLC stands for, and pretty much ignore the rest.
  • - general griping about numerous, poorly implemented web-languages/standards and tips on how to survive them. Since itís made partially as an emotional outlet for the frustrations of coders who have been portability-hacking their code for hours, the tone is fairly informal.
  • Codeaholics Code blog- programming / hacking / general caffeination.
  • Codeaholics News - where the code-blog is less-pinnacle code-related stuff, the News blog is just for announcements (eg: when coding projects get started/released, etc.).

Software Project
AIM Code Formatter
Started: 02/20/2005
Released: 02/20/2005

This script converts code into a format that can be pasted into AIM. I got tired of not being able to paste code to friends over AIM (it messes up the code because it thinks it's html), so I figured someone might as well write a script for it.

The page can be found here.

Price: $0.00

Codeaholics is the release grounds for all of my projects, and may contain some other professional information (such as a resume) at some point. In general, it is just where you can find my code. This site is currently rather narrowly focused but in the future may branch out on to other topics related to coding culture (Caffeine anyone?). The bulk of the content for now is probably the software page (where all of my projects are), the codeBlog where I write about my own coding expliots, and the reference files which you should find very useful if you are a developer.

Hope you enjoy the site, feedback is always appreciated...
