    1) Copy password to file 'password.txt'
    2) $ python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000
    3) Type <pc's ip>:8000/password.txt into Safari

    As simple as that

    So you had to put in a password but instead you tried to make a password manager that didn't work so you put the password anyway and wasted whole afternoon?

    Always tattoo important passwords as QR codes on your buttcheeks. That way, all you have to do is pull down your pants on the toilet, scan the code, and copy the string to the right app.

    People you can trust with access to your butt, are hopefully people you can trust with your passwords.
