Favourite folder in KeePass

First of all, all due credits go to this post by Mark on Sourceforge, many thanks to this unsung hero of the web.

Seven years ago I made a smallish tutorial on KeePass, as my password database grew I started adding multiple groups and sub-groups and my most used passwords ended up being buried and requiring too many clicks.

Seven years later I decided it was time to have them readily available on when I open the database, but I didn’t want to lose my neatly organized passwords. Thanks to Mark today I will show you how to add a “Favourites” view to KeePass, using KP’s triggers.

Default boring KeePass window
Favourites shown on the starting page and a “Show Favourites” button to instantly load that view.

Deepfakes

Another useless post, another useless skill in my book. It’s a cool thing to toy around, but has no real world value in my life or job. Last year I tried my luck with DeepFaceLab, but it took hours to train and make a couple minutes video. Now this is made with SimSwap which which is leagues behind quality wise but it’s super fast and really simple to use for a machine learning noob like me.

Counting Plastic Beads, now with a GUI

After making a command line version, I decided to make a GUI one. Not that there was a need to, but I was trying out Eto.Forms GUI library and this was a great excuse to try different features.
The program is single classed (two actually, but the first class only job is to run Main and create the second class), 140 lines, no cool programming or any great pattern example, it gets the job done and that what counts here.

Launch the application, click **load** to select your image and click **count** to get a list of colors (Hex format) and how many bead are needed per color.
Note: the counting includes background beads, if the same color is used for both background and front colors, you may want to edit the image in your favorite editor and change background color.

Should work on both .NET and Mono on all main desktop OSes (Win, OSX, Linux).

Download here: Beadscount GUI (1348 downloads) (all platforms in the same zip, you can run the .exe using .NET or MONO or use run .app on OSX)
Source: on github.

Here’s a couple screens:
