Apple Mail And Folder Management

I use Thunderbird on Windows, but from time to time like to fire up Apple Mail when on my Mac. Why is it Apple Mail on Leopard doesn’t seem to allow me to view a few mailboxes nested under the inbox on an IMAP account? I haven’t tried under POP3, though I’d venture it’s the […]

Who Dropped The Soap?

Thanks to Bug 332174 and the advanced warning system (sarcasm), reporter had been broken on the trunk for several weeks. Since I believe in debriefing (both before a shower, and after an event where one or more lesson can be learned), here’s the play by play: 2007-07-18 – Robert Sayre fixed Bug 332174 breaking reporter.

Snoopy’s Relative Redirect Bug

Snoopy is a PHP class that automates many common web browsing functions making it easier to fetch and navigate the web using PHP. It’s pretty handy. I found an interesting bug recently and diagnosed it this afternoon. If you navigate to a 301 or 302 redirect in a subdirectory you can get something like this: […]

Bug Bounty

Robert Kairo just announced a bug bounty program for SeaMonkey. The largest bounty is $1000 and the total for the bugs in the program is currently at $2700. Check the site for more information if you’re interested. This is similar to bounty program Mark Shuttleworth did a few years ago. The Mozilla Security Bug Bounty […]

IE Table Border Bug?

I encountered this the other day. Firefox, Safari and Opera do what I expected and believe to be correct. I’m curious if anyone can explain this, or knows of a workaround that “doesn’t suck”. Take the following testcase: < !DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN"> <html lang="en">  <head>     <title>IE Table Border Bug</title>   […]

Google Maps Image Variation

Some may not know this, but as you zoom in with Google Maps, the imagery that’s used may change, as a result on occasion some strange things may happen. The following is a great example. On Lybia’s shoreline (with the Mediterranean sea), you can tell there’s either some seasonal flooding, or some big tide difference. […]

Norton AV 2006 Update

I got Norton AntiVirus 2006 a few weeks ago, and decided today to update 3 systems from 2005 to 2006. It was free (after rebate) so a worthwhile update to keep those virus definitions fresh. One computer had trouble uninstalling, the old version (2005) then installed fine. The next system had uninstall problems (but seemed […]

Cairo Builds

As Stuart mentions work on cairo/thebes builds has progressed quite a bit lately. I tried a build the other day, and I think it was the first build I’ve seen that could be used as a browser (previous builds I’ve seen were almost unusable due to rendering issues). At times it seemed graphics were loading […]

MT 3.0 upgrade

Upgraded to MovableType 3.0 tonight. So far, smooth. I’ve got one question though: Anyone know of a hack to get MT to correctly encode HTML entities? Hence making & &? I’d appreciate any help. It’s an essential little hack if you expect any page generated by MT to validate. Other than that, seems good to […]

Ben answers

This infinite restart bug was driving me crazy the other day. Looks like Ben has found it. And it’s not to widespread. Only nightly users. Ugh. What a pain that bug was. Made me not use 0.9 at work. But only that system was hit by that bug. My laptop, and Macs are fine.
