Perhaps rotatingscrew.com/utfcast.aspx or unicodetools.com/unicode/utf8-to-latin-converter.php might work?

comment How secure is .htaccess?
@Bacon Basically, shared hosting providers (likely what nohat uses) use the Host: header to determine which website a client is requesting. However, this header isn't send until the connection is established, so a certificate would have to be presented before the server knows which one to select. The SNI extension, which fixes this, isn't widely deployed. [webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=861105]. BTW, StartSSL [startssl.com/] offers free Class 1 certificates.

comment How secure is .htaccess?
@Bacon I have to pay my hosting provider for a dedicated IP, and although StartSSL offers free certificates, it took me forever (plus a few support calls) to set up. SSL might not be worthwhile; it depends on how much security you need.

comment Is it safe to keep semi-sensitive information in Dropbox?
@André If you need that kind of security, try link or link. These services keep your encryption keys client-side, although SpiderOak will allow you web access if you give it the password (they promise to only keep it in server memory for the duration of the session).
