A miscellany is defined as a "collection of various pieces of writing by different authors", but it has come to mean something "Of items gathered or considered together of various types or from different sources" or "a collection or group composed of members or elements of different kinds". The word "miscellaneous" comes from the Latin word "miscere", meaning "to mix." You might have heard the expression "a mixed bag," which applies when you don't quite know what you're going to get. More commonly, a miscellaneous group is made up of an odd group of things that don't fit anywhere else.

Great Article !!!!

But when it comes to Security i think Linux is the king, so i recommend this solutions.-
https://www.lastpass.com/es
LastPass supports also Linux and has better security, if you are too paranoic the second option.-

May be your solution, but its harder to configure and maintain, in the past i only used Firefox master password, so maybe my advice is not so good.
Good Luck.

Hi Jorge and thank you for your comments about my article.

The problem with your recommendation about lastpass is that it's owned by LogMeIn - a company I will now be avoiding like the plague because of the way they treated both their paying and nonpaying customers recently in just dropping the Xmarks bookmarks manager like a hot potato.

To see what I'm talking about, see the thread still getting comments here:

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29092048/Alternatives-to-the-Xmarks-com-Bookmarks-Synchronization-Service.html

You're welcome (in fact encouraged) to contribute your thoughts to the above thread.

I didn't much like Lastpass as a solution before, but after what LogMeIn recently did after taking over Xmarks, I would no longer consider any solution that they have any control over -  and that's coming from someone who used their LogMeIn Rescue product at a cost of about $1,000 a year for nearly 10 years.

Their killing of a solution that so many were enjoying (and subscribing to use Pro features for) without any decent explanation is bound to hurt them in the long run imo and I'll discourage anyone who asks about any LogMeIn solution in the future for that reason.

Avoid using LastPass - who know's when it will just disappear, just like Xmarks did, when logmein decides they don't want to play anymore?!

Cheers...

Andrew

With the shift in today’s hiring climate, many companies are choosing to hire freelancers to get projects completed efficiently and inexpensively. In order to get the maximum financial benefit from outsourcing, it’s essential that your project descriptions are crafted to attract qualified freelancers and promote effective communication.

Craft an Eye Catching Title


Your project title is the first thing that a freelancer sees. Be mindful that your project will be one of many on a list, and will often be viewed at a glance by someone looking for freelance work. Make sure your title stands out in the crowd. Many sites have a character limit for titles, so make it simple, catchy, and informative. If you’re stumped, try writing the project description first and coming back to the title afterward.
