IE7 Testing

I complained a while back about how unlike Firefox or Opera, it’s hard it is to support multiple versions of IE. Microsoft apparently did listen to developer complaints, and came out with a solution. You can now download a time crippled VirtualPC Image and running IE6 in VirtualPC. It’s available free of charge. The catch […]

MacMarionette

This is one of the cooler hardware hacks I’ve run across in the past few weeks: Turning a PowerBook into a Marionette. Unfortunately it’s motion detector specific, so no real chance of that being ported to other devices. I’m still waiting for someone to take one of those new Lenovo X60 Tablets and make it […]

PortableApps Suite

If your a fan of running an application completely on your USB drive, check out the new PortableApps Suite. It’s really great. I’ve been using PortableApps for a while, and this is a real nice suite. Now things are easier to access than ever. The next improvement I’d like to see is some Mac versions […]

SafePasswd.com Update 11/19

I updated SafePasswd.com tonight. Updates include better generation of memorable passwords, easier to handle length selector, and better quality bar. Most of the changes were to algorithms, rather than major features. Hopefully the quality of passwords generated is now slightly improved. It’s not always about the big things, sometimes it’s the smaller refinements that need […]

Phishing Unit Testing And Other Phishy Things

Seeing these results is pretty cool. I hope someone has/will come up with a way to have a test like this running periodically (at least weekly, if not daily or multiple times a day) which does an analysis on Phishing sites and how many are being blocked. I’d presume Google and other data services would […]

Some Changes

I just made some changes around here, cleaning up some of the older code. Most notable changes: Comments – New lighter ajax comment script in place, this should make the pages load a little faster (actually quite a bit if your on 56k). Could use a little help testing so feel free to leave a […]

Here We Go Again

If you haven’t been following, you should start. Looks like SpreadFirefox is trying to outdo itself.

Moving Forward

It seems that since Firefox 2.0 has shipped, everyone is really taking some time to think about the future. Not that it wasn’t on peoples minds before 2.0. For me 2.0 was really a maintenance release. End users got some great new features and fixes, but all I really contributed was a small fix or […]

Updated Header

I finally got around to changing the header to something different. This one is the tracks below Penn Station taken by user garann on sxc. I really should change pics a little more often to freshen the site up.
