Comment Fairly ancient copies of Photoshop and Dreamweaver (Score 1) 620

I'm a freelance web designer, and have been producing websites since 1999 (I started at 15). I managed to get hold of a copy of Adobe Photoshop 5.5, as released in 1999, along with Dreamweaver 3, Flash 4, Fireworks 3 and a few others of the same vintage. I upgraded DW to version 6 (MX) when someone gave me a copy and a key for it. I still use PS 5.5 almost weekly as part of my job with one of my clients, and still do a lot of editing in DW MX. I haven't upgraded either because of both the costs involved and the changes to the user interface in both pieces of software in the last 10 to 15 years.

Sounds like you need a simple mechanism for unique passwords. I have a suggestion for you to consider. Personally - I "salt" a standard password with the name of the website: the first initial of each of the words in a site's name for example. If my 'standard' password was for example "Aware20130530ness", and I was signing up for slashdot, I can simply add the letters to the start of the password, resulting in "sdAware20130530ness"
