      bobjonkman favorited something by schestowitz: Terrible and empathy-deficient people come from all genders and races. To tackle the issue of policy abuse, brutality and racism focus on hiring based on character and track record, not just diversity* goals __ *A lot of the reformist movement (derogatorily referred to as "SJW")

      Had to fix two laptops with UEFI and Windows today. Windows wouldn't boot, but my USB stick with Ubuntu was flawless. Unfortunately, I managed to fix the problems, so the client doesn't get to benefit from a new OS.

      If you get 4x 32 GB USB drives then you will fragment your free space across 4 devices. When each device has less than 1 GByte free space and you need to store one 3 GByte file then you'll be sorry!

Auto-Type Keywords for KeepassX

Posted by Bob Jonkman on 1st November 2016

KeepassX logo


I use KeePassX to keep track of passwords for web sites, server logins, and encrypted disks. And, at the touch of a keystroke, KeepassX can auto-type login names and passwords to those web sites, servers, and disks.

By default, KeepassX sends the sequence


but if the Username field is blank then KeepassX just sends


or if the Password field is blank then KeepassX only sends


But what other things can KeepassX send? A quick look at the AutoType.cpp source code reveals these additional keystrokes:

  • {tab}
  • {enter}
  • {up}
  • {down}
  • {left}
  • {right}
  • {insert} or {ins}
  • {delete} or {del}
  • {home}
  • {end}
  • {pgup}
  • {pgdown}
  • {backspace} or {bs} or {bksp}
  • {break}
  • {capslock}
  • {esc}
  • {help}
  • {numlock}
  • {ptrsc}
  • {scolllock}
  • {add} or {+}
  • {subtract}
  • {multiply}
  • {divide}
  • {^}
  • {%}
  • {~}
  • {(}
  • {)}
  • {{}
  • {}}
  • {f1}
  • {f2} .. {f16}
