Password Security

Password Security

Hello Everyone,   Being that this is Cyber security mouth and I’ve recently been ramping up my cyber security measures to even higher levels. This week I’d like to talk about my favorite password manager: KeePass. The main thing that I like most about Keepass is that it does not use any of that cloud storage nonsense when it comes to storing your passwords. Yes I know that this means that you need to find a way to store and transfer…

Minecraft Server Wrapper Script (IronMC)

Minecraft Server Wrapper Script (IronMC)

I’ve completed writing the start script for Aetacraft’s Minecraft server. I’ve named the script IronMC due to it being very durable (much like iron blocks). In true Aetacraft fashion, I’ve made the script open source and put the script up on GitHub. The script is a fork of ForsakenDev’s MinecraftStartupScript project. IronMC adds the ability to have a watchdog watch over the Minecraft Server software. If the server software crashes for any reason IronMC will automatically restart it. It is a…
