1Password 2.5 Released

If you are a regular reader, you will know that my favorite Mac application (and my first must have app once I switched to the Mac from the PC) is 1Password. Yes, 1Password, as the name of the application was changed from 1Passwd with the release of 2.5.

Version 2.5, along with many great new additions, includes support for Leopard. In addition, soon-to-be-released is a new service called my1Password that helps you access your 1Password data anywhere!

It just keeps getting better and better!

Cisco Tip: do command

It's happened to all of us - we are in the middle of configuring our L3 switch or router and we can't continue until verifying some other information with a show command. In the past, we would CTRL-Z out of what we were doing, use our show command(s) and then go back into config mode. What a pain!

These days, assuming you are running a current IOS, you can merely use the do command from config mode (or any other submode) in order to run your show commands.

Here is an example from CCO.....

Router(config)# do show interfaces serial 3/0
Serial3/0 is up, line protocol is up
Hardware is M8T-RS232
MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1544 Kbit, DLY 20000 usec, rely 255/255, load 1/255
Encapsulation HDLC, loopback not set, keepalive set (10 sec)
Last input never, output 1d17h, output hang never
Last clearing of "show interface" counters never
