comment How to check my application passes multiple virus scanners
FWIW, I've used VirusTotal when I want to do an online multiple virus scan of a file. It has the 64MB limit, but that can be worked around by simply sending it the executable files involved one at a time. You're not going to have viruses in certain data files anyway, so why bother with them?

"if you do not use WPA2 for your WiFi then you are doing it wrong." - what if the home devices don't support it? For example, I flashed the ROM of the printer I mentioned above to support WPA instead of just WEP, but I hoped for a WPA2 upgrade and didn't find it.

Thanks for the added entropy idea, I might try it with the generator I already have (which works on Windows). As for writing the password down, this is what I had in mind. Short of losing it, something that's set up and done would work to just have the password in a safe. My main concern was it being a home device which isn't necessarily monitored for outside traffic.

3. So the answer is that I'm thinking okay on this. 4. Already bothered, and might make a storage function someday. Just was asking to see if anyone had any ideas. Overall, though, it seems like this is fine if this is the consensus opinion.

comment Passwords In Securing Network Devices
1. I ask this because I've encountered situations where certain printable characters are not allowed. For example, a wireless printer that only allows 8 symbol characters in addition to the alphabet and numerals for passwords. I've read in different places that Linux/Unix doesn't play well with spaces in the password as well. So this is why I'm asking.
