PDF Mail Merge
I am very exited about the Aloaha PDF Suite. It allows me to use Microsoft Words Mail Merge to generate my PDF Documents which then will be emailed and/or FAXed automatically by the Aloaha PDF Suite. It was so easy to install and configure. Once the installation was ready I started the creator.exe from the installation directory and enabled save to folder, FAX Gateway, email and scripting. All I need to do now is to make sure that Mail Merge embeds the FAX and/or email Addresses in the prints and thats it. As a power user I even found out that the email and FAX commands are defined with regular expressions in the registry. In case somebody does not like the default FAX, emailto, emailfrom commands everyone can change them with a few clicks!
Use Aloaha to store your passwords, credit card numbers secure
In an ideal world no passwords would exist and everybody would simply logon to computer and websites via Digital Certificates or Finger Printers. But this ideal world is still far away so I am sure I am not alone with my problems. As an IT Professional I need to know a large amount of different usernames and passords for all the sites I am responsible for. To use everywhere the same password would be a huge security risk. But I found the solution! I started to write them down! Not on a piece of paper as you might think. No, I am using e-paper - better known as PDF. PDF Documents have a great digital rights management integrated and clients are available on all platforms! I will explain a bit more detailed the steps how to use PDF as a password store.
Now you created a PDF Document which contains all your secrets. You could even publish that document somewhere on a webserver to have your information available everywhere. Whenever you need to add some more information just open it in the Aloaha Editor and edit the Form.
As an example I will publish below a sample document. The password is aloaha.
