Speed up your WordPress with CloudFlare!

by Gyro

My web hosting services provider ServerPilot has integrated CloudFlare into the cPanel!

CloudFlare is Content Deliver Network (CDN) with 22 data centers across the globe, and according to google there are only 9 web services in the world that have more traffic than CloudFlare. It is free, and it will make your website's load lightning fast from anywhere in world!

Even if your website is hosted with a slow hosting provider elsewhere, you can use CloudFlare for free!

If you give CloudFlare a try, make sure you also get the CloudFlare WordPress Plugin! WIth it, you can turn on the "Developer Mode" from your WordPress admin panel -- a must when updating your site, as changes won't show up immediately if the Developer Mode is turned off.

Enjoy! :enjoy:

Keep your passwords together and safe with KeePassX

by Gyro

As a web craftsman I have to keep a nearly endless list of usernames, email addresses, and the respective passwords.

KeePassX is the perfect solution to keep all your passwords, as well as all other important information in one place. It is an Open Source software for Linux, MacOS, and even Windows, that uses one single file to store all your information. This file is protected by your own password, the encryption technology used complies with the standards of the NSA, and best of all -- you can share and open this file on the before mentioned operating systems.
