If you are stuck using Windows and you need to verify file authenticity and integrity or compare two files to make sure they are the same a wonderful little tool is HashTab. There is also a version for the Mac now.
There is support for esoteric Hashes as well. The usual hashes like MD5, SHA1, and SHA2 are all there plus things like RipeMD, HAVAL and Whirlpool. Happy hashing.
I’m going to try this for Thanksgiving dinner this year. Looks promising.
The terms of a new lettuce sharing agreement have been reached. After spending time bargaining the lettuce-sharing agreement will lead to peaceful resolution of the vegetable civil wars between broccoli and spinach primarily backed by mixed greens. The civil war ends in a military stalemate, the broccoli will use its offer of a lettuce-sharing agreement to the insurgent spinach as a tool to begin disengagement of its military forces from spinach held territories. It is expected that the mixed greens will disarm and rejoin the larger vegetable population. Once this milestone is reached the spinach will follow suit. A portion of bacon will be distributed to the insurgent populations. However, this increases the degree of support that insurgent spinach leaders receive from their mixed greens supporters and consequently increases the likelihood of recurrence of vegetable war. It is hoped this will finally conclude a violent and bloody era.

Previously I had blogged for many years beginning around 1999. In 2007 I had a hard drive failure (no raid, I know …) and lost all those many years of blogs to the bit bucket. I was totally demoralized and stopped blogging. I also lost tons of MP3s and had to re-rip them, but that is another story. Nevertheless, I have once more decided I will post my many scattered and obviously random thoughts for no one all to read. As Captain Picard says,”Engage.” (That was an inside joke for Sara.)
Hurray. I have the new version of WordPress working.
