+ - Getting Into the Internationalization Business->

Submitted by
windcask
windcask writes "I am a developer currently preparing for my JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) exams, and I wondered to myself if there were any Slashdotters with experience in internationalizing business software. What are your experiences and best practices, and how would one get into the market? Are there companies out there entirely dedicated to doing this, or is this an internal function of most reasonably-sized development houses?"

+ - Changing Passwords for the New Year->

Submitted by
windcask
windcask writes "Every New Year's Day, I assemble and memorize a random collection of seven to ten mixed-case alphanumeric characters and proceed to change every password I have on the interwebs to these characters (plus a few extra characters unique to the site). The problem is I only change them on the sites I visit. Once in a while, I'll come across a site I haven't visited for a few years, and I may end up not being able to guess the password before the try-lockout takes effect. What are your password-changing rituals and how do they deal with situations like mine? I do use Keepass for work, but it is sometimes impractical for times I'm at other computers."
