If your blog is being spammed, and you want to do something about it, look no further! Spam Karma 2 is the plugin to install! I’ve had it running for some days now, and it is doing a wonderful job discriminating the good from the bad. With this plugin, it’s almost fun to get spam! =)
Thanks to Peter for the tip.
How to find out the short name of a windows service? The short name is handy to stop a service from the command line. One can always use the display name between quotes, but stopping a service like “Windows Firewall (WF) / Internet-verbinding delen (ICS)” isn’t fun like that.
I didn’t find a way to find the short name through the service panel (if you know, please let me know!). So here is how I did it:
- Open regedit and go to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services
- Do a search on the friendly name
- The name of the parent key is the service’s short name!
UPDATE: An anonymous poster pointed out my post is actually useless =) See the comments for information on how ‘normal’ people look it up.
Sounds familiar? Well, probably, you think you know… but did you know it’s actually a web cartoon? =) It’s one of my favorites! I wanted to start an archive to be able to read them offline, so this evening I wrote a little spider proggie to leech them. I won’t put it online because I don’t want to kill his banner revenues
You could probably leech it anyway using some of the generic spiders (HTTrack is an excellent open-source one), but I wanted to keep it clean and even more, have some fun with the great Apache Httpclient library. It’s really an amazing library!
Did you know it exists? =) I was just cleaning up some download dir and stumbled upon this rap from Monzy. I think it’s really the best in its kind. First time I heard it, I immediately listened again for some 10 times to get all the jokes If you studied Computer Science, it’s simply hilarious to hear all those expressions in a ‘though’ language.
You can also read the lyrics, but it’s so much more fun to hear it in the song
In his rap against MC++:
I may not have a label but I rap like a star;
I’m an unsigned long int and you’re an 8-bit char.
Just found out you can move tabs in konqueror, lol
Konqueror uses the same scheme as Kicker for this: left mouse button drags&drops the URL (drop onto other tab, “Location:” field, empty tab bar space for new tab, …) and middle mouse button allows you to reorder tabs.
Quite a ‘hidden’ feature. I’m more of an Opera user (but mostly it doesn’t come installed with your distro ), but thought I’d help spread the word
We all know webmail interfaces are improving through the advent of the AJAX model, look at gmail. But Zimbra seems to take even more advantage of this technology. Enjoy the movie
An open source version is also available.
