Third year: LastPass

I started using LastPass for my password manager application in March 2017. So, this year, it’s my third year now. Before LastPass, I used 1Password. I didn’t remember the exact reasons why I switched to LassPass, but I think it was about the integration with applications in mobile devices.

I am satisfied with LassPass features. For some people, Google’s Password Manager will work. But, when it comes to more complex password and identity management, I think LassPass fits me more.

Is LassPass free? Unfortunately, not. I started my subscription for US $12/year (for Premium package). A year later, LassPass increased its pricing to US $24/year. And, this year, they increased the subscription pricing again to US $36/year.

Hat tip: LassPass was acquired by LogMeIn back in 2015.

LassPass offers competitive pricing compared to its competitor like DashLane (US $40/year), 1Password (US $36/year), and Keeper (US $30/year). Since LassPass works for me (until today), I think I will keep my subscription.


JOTUN 1859 Identity dan 1876 Wild Earl

Karena tukang yang mengerjakan pekerjaan pengecatan sudah ada, dan pilihan cat harus segera diputuskan, akhirnya pencarian pilihan merk dan warna cat selesai juga.

JOTUN menjadi pilihan utama merek cat yang digunakan. Pengecatan langit-langit saya gunakan Dulux Pentalite Ceiling. Untuk bagian interior, saya dan istri sepakat memilih JOTUN Majestic True Beauty Matt dengan pilihan warna 1876 Wild Earl. Sedangkan bagian eksterior, kami memilih Jotashield Colour Extreme dengan warna 1859 Identity.

Warna lain sebagai aksen tambahan belum diputuskan. Saya prioritaskan untuk dua cat tersebut karena jumlahnya yang cukup banyak.

Catatan: Tulisan diatas bukanlah tulisan berbayar atau promosi, dan saya tidak memiliki afiliasi atau kerjasama apapun dengan Jotun Indonesia ataupun Dulux. Seluruh biaya yang muncul atas pembelian produk adalah biaya pribadi.


On Telegram

I’ve been using many messaging app. For now, I’m enjoying using Telegram for some simple reasons: lots of my colleagues and frequent contacts are there. It also supports multiple devices (using a single identity). It’s great since I can switch between devices (MacBook, iPhone, iPad and my Android devices) seamlessly.


Flickr says Hello to Google Account!

Oke, this is what you need to know right now: You don’t need to have/use Yahoo! ID to join Flickr. That’s right. Today, Flickr allows new signup using Google Account.

With dozens of different login usernames and passwords out there on the Interwebs, who needs to add yet another one to the list? To help solve this, Flickr is rolling out a new feature to make it easier than ever for new users to join our community. We’re introducing OpenID on Flickr, a service that makes it faster and easier to sign-up for new accounts by letting you use one identity across multiple websites. So starting today, you’ll be able to use a Google account to sign-up for a new Flickr account. [source]

I just tried it, and it works. Also, Flickr simplifies the login process. Previously, if you’re on a single photo page, and you want to give comment, clicking the “Sign-in” link will bring to to another page. Now, you can sign-in without leaving the page. Yahoo! works really hard these days. :D
Anyway, I’m on Flickr too of course. :D


Illustration and Avatar Maker Online Tools

When we register to a service, we have the ability to change our profile/account information. And one of them is on the photo or avatar image. The main reason because we want to incorporate our avatar identity to our account. Well, better than the default image/photos provided by the services.
But sometime, creating an avatar takes too much time. Not only because we have to deal with complicated software for image editing, but also we lack of ideas. What kind of avatar? We can create our own avatar and illustration in ease. Portrait Illustration Maker and Otaku Avatar Maker are available for free.
Illustration and Avatar Maker
The input fields will help you creating your favorite avatar or illustration. You can choose the background, foot, hair type, eyes color, etc. If you have created them, you can simply save your work and use it for your need. Nice tools!
