Movie Collection Script

Over the past few months, one of my “As time allows” projects has been a movie collection cataloguing script. Basically it reads through your collection of digitally stored movies, catalogues them in mySQL, and gives you a PHP interface to your collection. It’s not fancy, it’s not pretty, and it almost certainly doesn’t adhere to any good coding practices.

I will try to keep this updated as I “improve” the script and pages. Also, if by some twist of fate, you’re a skilled bash scripter with some free time, I’m open to suggestions on how this can be improved.


Portable Apps

Now that’s it’s “cool” to keep all your apps on your thumb drive, I thought I’d spit out a list of good resources.

Portable Apps has some major applications rewritten for portability. Notably Portable Firefox, Thunderbird (+ gpg and enigma), and OpenOffice.

Portable Freeware has tons of little apps to meet just about any need.
KeePass is a powerful, yet simple password manager that stores your password in a database encrypted with FIPS-compliant encryption.
TrueCrypt allows you to keep all your sensitive documents without having to worry about someone getting acces to them if they swipe your drive.
