If you're setting up a service where people can register their own usernames to be used as a hostname (username.example.com), email address (username@example.com), or URL path (example.com/username) within your domain, there are some common names you should avoid letting the general public register.

...

This is a list of all the names I know that should be restricted from registration in automated systems. If you know of others, please let me know and I'll update this page.

Avoiding hassle is especially important for a bootstrapped company. As discussed in my previous post about the spiderweb entrepreneur, in the early stages of bootstrapping, nothing happens unless YOU do it, so it’s incredibly important to conserve your time and energy.

Ifyou want to absolutely minimize hassle as you run your software business, you can stick to each one of these rules, which I present in no particular order:

You are being watched. Private and state-sponsored organizations are monitoring and recording your online activities. privacytools.io provides services, tools and knowledge to protect your privacy against global mass surveillance.

Japan has long been famed for its unique capsule hotel accommodation, but generally speaking these tiny rooms have been for practical purposes only (read: you wouldn’t really have wanted to stay in them while on vacation, other than for novelty reasons).

Here are four of our favorites…

The goal of this project is to create a universal database of disallowed usernames for web applications. This repository contains a list of keywords that should be banned/disallowed to prevent users from registering with, on your software projects and apps to prevent impersonation and phishing on your platform.

We know how hard it can be to find well made, reliable resources to learn, study, and practice your Japanese. As more content appears, it becomes harder and harder to tell what's worth your time and what isn't. You don't want to waste the time you should spend studying on digging through piles of Japanese garbage.

So stop taking chances buying random books, apps, and subscriptions you may or may not actually use. Instead, take a look at our monthly series! Every month we make a list of all the new resources for learning and practicing Japanese and cut it down to the very best. There could be a ton or just a few. They could be beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Maybe they're free! Who knows?!
