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.
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.
