If Companion for Mac is not working after you upgrade to OS X Mountain Lion... {10 October 2012}

A little hint sent by a visitor - if Companion for Mac is not working after you upgrade to OS X Mountain Lion, delete the app AND its preferences ( ~/Library/Preferences/com.vladstudio.VSCompanion.plist ), then download it again and install. Thanks!


Introducing vPass - password generator for everyone {4 October 2012}

vPass is a tiny web app I made quite long ago, but forgot to announce it :-)

vPass is a tiny web app I created to solve my own problem - keeping my passwords secure and easy to manage at the same time. Passwords are the only way to identify yourself in the Internet. Nothing better has been invented yet. However, passwords are still painful to work with:

Numerous password-managing apps are here to help. Most of them are tied to one OS. None of them appealed to me personally. The best approach I could find is to have single ("master") password and generate account-specific passwords from it (using account name for encryption).

Try vPass (also available as bookmarklet, extension for Chrome, Safari, Opera).

Read more about vPass - highly recommended! It's not immediately clear how it works, but once you get it, you'll probably like the idea as much as I did. Thanks!

P.S. If you can help me make Firefox extension, I'll be most thankful!

If you're using Windows Phone 7 - how does it feel generally as a phone OS? I'm curious about any mobile interfaces, but did not yet use WP.


Vladstudio new site (codename Kauri) {3 October 2012}


If you have been to my website before, you will notice I changed a lot of its design. I hope the new features (as well as removal of some clutter) will make your stay more comfortable. If you stumble upon a bug, or have a suggestions, please let me know in the comments. Thanks!

P.S. I code-named this design Kauri - a mighty tree from my beloved New Zealand :-)

Updated bash script for resizing and saving wallpapers using Ubuntu and ImageMagick {5 July 2012}

Some time ago, I published my method of saving a wallpaper in multiple sizes, using "bash" scripting language. Please read the original post here and more recent discussion here.

Recently, I revised my bash script, and I wanted to share the updated code with you. Maybe you will find it useful. It has comments inside, however, to fully understand what is going on, you will want to learn a bit about bash.


From email conversation: creating a wallpaper site that does not suck {4 July 2012}

Below is my email conversation with a website visitor, published with her permission.

I’ve always loved creating art for my phone, desktop, etc and have been looking for a way to someone monetize this. Creating a membership site seems like the perfect business model. And so I started researching membership sites and thought I’d reach out to someone already doing it successfully ~ you. :)

Could give direction as to what system (wordpress? membership plugin?) you use or if you developed your site entirely yourself. How did you decide what to offer FREE and what to make PREMIUM?

That’s a big question :-) Allow me to split it into several questions.


Only July 3! Happy Birthday little Alice! Premium accounts for $2.00!!! {3 July 2012}
