Wallet: A Keychain for the Road

Wallet is a neat little utility that — like Keychain.app, which comes bundled with Mac OS X — lets you store all sorts of tidbits like notes, account numbers, PINs, etc. in a safely-encrypted little repository (or, wallet).

Unlike Keychain.app, however, there’s a version for the iPhone that can sync up with the information on your computer(s), if you have a Mobile Me account. Which means that the info in your Wallet database is completely accessible when you’re out and about.

My Nth Attempt at Starting a Blog

I’ve “started” several blogs in the past. As one might guess, each one fell into the chasm of abandoned endeavors. This time, however, may well be different because I’ve learned two key things:

2. Keeping the publishing frequency up is important; microblogging can help.
So, let’s see if this thing pans out, shall we?
