CsCart - Guest checkout only

One of our clients needed a redesign of the checkout process of his website. Even though, it would be easier for me if it was a Ubercart or DrupalCommerce eshop, it was CsCart and I had to make my hands dirty. Or not...

Pronounceable passwords

Sometimes you might want to provide your clients with a password. You know how clients are. They want to be a password easy to remember and passwords like eS#$j12 are not what you would call easy to remember unless you find a certain pattern. On the other hand, passwords like hesVom2 are easier to remember. Even if hesVom2 doesn't mean anything, it is pronounceable. It is easy to remember. "He's Vom two" after all. Let's try another one... KnaitEltus3. It's also pronounceable "Knight Eltus Three". It's kind of epic too.
Anyways, just click at MSD Services and you will be able to generate as many pronounceable passwords as you want.
