N.A.N.Y. 2021 / One-Time Grid
« on: October 14, 2020, 12:37 PM »
I had initially made this as a Windows app, but have since made it into a website.

Description: Provides a grid for making secure passwords.

Thought behind it: It was late at night and I was watching Star Trek (the new movie with Chris Pine as Kirk) and I dozed off. Had a dream that I had shuffled off this mortal coil and my wife needed to get into one of my accounts. She didn't have access to my password manager account. So, I was thinking of a way that I can not only have them as hard copy (stored in a notebook in the safe) but also have them in my password manager. Every time you visit the page, the grids are different and no grid repeats... at least it shouldn't.

How I use it: Every time I need a new password I grab a sheet (I printed some out front and back of a page and each has 6 grids on it) and circle the group of character that I want to use as the password, like a word search puzzle, (making sure to follow that site's guidelines for passwords) and then indicate the start and end. It may sound like a pain, but it's not (at least I don't think so). I write the description/website at the top along with the username. I have also included a random string and a pin that can be use as a suffix/prefix to the password.

Website: redirects to

Now, I am not a web developer... like at all. I just googled my way to using PHP enough to make this page. With that said, there is more I would like to do and if anyone is willing to lend some Knowledge, I would appreciate it!

To Do: (The bit I need help on)
- Make it so the page can be printed out on 1 sheet of paper w/o needing to mess with the printer dialog. I.E. Make it super easy to print for the end user.
   [UPDATE: Printing seems to work fine on Chrome, I can print the full page. No so much in Safari]
- Make it mobile friendly. I tried to use CSS and add @media queries but without any luck.
- Style the table MUCH BETTER than it currently is.
- A way to be able to "circle" the letters in the grid (again like a word search) and have it print that way. This is no where near the level I can reach and is probably not going to happen, but I can wish. This was way easier than I thought it would be. I don't have them circle, but I change the cell background on click.
- Different color for numbers and symbols in grid

Thoughts and comments welcome!!


I use it allows mirroring/folder syncing. It works great.

Odd. Sorry about that. Here is a video on how it works.

Thanks, Cgingerich  I tried to go there but it said I needed an invitation?

My app Fast Protect may work for you. I don't really have an active page for it but here is an old one. The links are all dead, sorry but if you are interested let me know and I'll give you a DL link.

That sucks. Sorry this happened mouser!  :(

What about renaming the text file to a .CSV file and opening it in Excel or Sheets? You can then select and delete the rows you want.

If you want to send an email as an sms, most cell carriers allow it already. Take a look at this.


Liner is pretty cool and seems to be working well.  Thank you.

Glad that works for you! YW :-)

what about something like this - or this

I've been using it for the past few hours and it working well! I may switch  8)

That sounded really cool, but I am not able to get to, it seems to be down :-(

A shortcut to generate passwords in the form of "xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx" and copy the results to the clipboard.

V1.0 - Initial release

Small shortcut to download the Bing daily wallpaper and save it to your camera roll.

v1.0 - Initial release

I get migraines, a lot. I wrote this to track when I get them. It asks for the start time, adds 30 min to make the end time, and adds it to your calendar. If you run it again on the same day it will let you know if you already recorded one for that day and if you want to record another.

iCloud URL: https://www.icloud.c...4d2e9cd0e982877106d6

1.0 - Initial release

If you have an iPhone and you have it backup to iCloud, all you need to do is log in with your iCloud account and everything download and will show up. If Android, what @Shades said.

If you are going from iPhone to Androud or vise versa, if I remember right each has their own way of importing from a different OS. You'll have to research that.

This is my first public Siri Shortcut, Paste To Pastebin. This shortcut allows you to pass text or a text file to it and make a public paste or paste to your personal pastebin account.

Please let me know of any issues.



V1.2 - Made adjustment to update URL
V1.1 - Added an update system (not sure how often if at all it’ll be updated, but this was more of a proof of concept to update shortcuts)

I think I'll have concede this one. I may go back and see what I can do mid next week, but I don't have any more time to spend on this week. Sorry  :(

@nkormanik - I have updated mtof. Please give it a try and let me know.

Ok so you want it to go deeper than one folder if I am understanding.

Living Room / Re: Is there any compact portable browser?
« on: February 26, 2019, 04:24 PM »
How about a HTML 5 browser with a sporting size of 1,6 MB?

Sure, limited use (no tabs currently) but find a smaller one...

I have been looking for one like this also! Thanks!

But the program requested must make a distinction between "files" and "folders."

I guess I am not understanding what you mean. mtof does not include folders when counting, it only counts "files" that are in the sub-folders under the root folder. Maybe you can show me what you mean with a screen shot?

Here is a quick and dirty app I call More Than One File. Extract mtof.exe and run. Enter or browse for the root folder and press Process. It'll add any sub-folder that has more than one file to the list. Double click the list item to open that folder.

Version History - Updated to include ALL sub-folders under the root [recursive list]. - Initial release
