      RT @hattiecat Looking at compile options for various things. Stuff like "sanity check - detect buffer overflows. Used for debugging. Slight overhead. Disable for production". IMO it's "disable for production" idiocy despite the minuscule perf. penalty that's responsible for a lot of breakage. Brings to mind again C.A.R. Hoare's remarks about having lifejackets on in […]

      Hm. That's @clacke... Any relation to #LibrePlanet, the @FSF user communities?
    • New note by bobjonkman 10 November 2018
      Thanx Claes! Nice to be back. Gotta set up a persistent #IRC client on my Comm server so I'm not dependent on different clients on different machines. ♻ @clacke@libreplanet.de: freenode #social

Auto-Type Keywords for KeepassX

Posted by Bob Jonkman on 1st November 2016

KeepassX

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

{USERNAME}{TAB}{PASSWORD}{ENTER}

but if the Username field is blank then KeepassX just sends

{PASSWORD}{ENTER}

or if the Password field is blank then KeepassX only sends

{USERNAME}{ENTER}

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}

KeepassX is written by Felix Geyer and Florian Geyer with reporter Tarquin Winot, and is released under the GNU head logoGNU General Public License.

Netware Debugger Monitor keystrokes

Posted by Bob Jonkman on 25th July 2012

Novell Netware 6.5

I dig out my notebook with the Netware Debugger Monitor instructions and keystrokes whenever I’m called in to work on a new (to me) Novell Netware server. Typically, there’s some kind of problem that needs more SysAdmin powers than those available through the ordinary Netware console screens, and the Netware Debugger Monitor is what gives a Netware System Administrator his superpowers. Sometimes it’s even possible to regain control of a hung server by using the Debugger Monitor. Thought I’d share:

Swap Screens
ALT+ESC
List of screens
CTRL+ESC
Alternate console
CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+ESC
Shutdown prompt or the “Hung Console Menu”
CTRL+ALT+ESC
Entering the Netware Debugger Monitor
LSHIFT+RSHIFT+ALT+ESC
