Another Keepass plus

Keepass is also available as a Portable App at portableapps.com. Just put it in a thumb drive and you can have your passwords with you at all times.

don't forget autocomplete

Hi Frank, very nice episode about keepassX. I just started using this about 3 months ago as well. One killer feature you didn't mention is autocompletion, doing Ctrl+Shift+N from inside a login field (or Ctrl+V from inside KeepassX) & having keepassx fill in both fields for you & press enter. It's awesome. :)

This sounds great

Good job on the show, and good job describing this software. I really should give this one a try. Thank you, Frank.
