Pwdhash Widget

I’ve been using pwdhash for ages. Apart from some pathetic sites that impose password limitations (less than x characters, or no ‘strange’ characters), I’ve used it on every site I’ve signed up to. This has started to change recently as more sites offer a client application that sits alongside the online app (flickr, twitter and last.fm come to mind): It’s a pain to visit pwdhash.com every time I need to generate a password for an offline app. So, I decided to have a stab at creating a dashboard widget to generate password hashes. I used dashcode (which makes this stuff really easy) and got something knocked up, in about an hour, on Friday. The fact that pwdhash.com is already composed of html and javascript helped just a bit too…

Anyway, if it sounds useful feel then free to download it here.
