Storage and Backup
I use a variety of products - here they are:
OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) - http://onedrive.com - use your Microsoft account to get 30GB of free storage space. You can also share to social networks or collaborate in real time with people on projects.
DropBox - http://dropbox.com - get 2 GB of free storage. Easy to set up sharing
Carbonite - http://carbonite.com - I use this to back up my entire hard drive - cost is $59/year. Business plans available.
Google Drive - I have it because I need some Google services, but I don't use it.
I use the Builder Theme from iThemes. I started using them when I found out their headquarters are in my home town and have kept using them for over 5 years now because of their continued innovation and support. Besides the themes, they have plugins, e-commerce and security. You'll need to visit their site.
Firebug - a web developers basic tool. I have an extension in my Firefox toolbar.
Colorpicker - identifies colors for me that I find on the web. Also an add-on in Firefox
Hover - for registering domains. Love that they answer the phone and will not transfer you or refer you on.
Hostgator - for web hosting. Great support and my experiences with them have been positive. If you have a site that has a lot of traffic, then a more specialized service may be for you.
My memory used to be pretty good for recalling passwords - until I had more than 10 to remember! Then I started a spreadsheet and kept it handily next to my computer - not real secure, was it?
Then I discovered LastPass - the last password you'll ever need to remember and life was good again. Seriously, you need some kind of secure, quality password keeper for your sites. The great thing is, once you sign up (free service + premium add-ons) and install the browser extension, the software will automatically ask you to save each new site you visit - you do NOT have to enter in all your passwords. This saved my sanity!
RoboForm - - have not used, but I've heard good things.
Keepass - I started using this, but I didn't keep up with it. I think I had to enter each password in - too tedious. This is an open-source software, so if you want to dig into the code (not for me), go for it.
