New Reaction Buttons version

Yesterday I finally found some time to include cookies into reaction buttons, so that you could push every button only once. Sure, It’s quite easy to circumvent, but without authentication it’s not possible to prevent that. And authenticating before using the buttons would be against their primary idea. 🙂

Download from wordpress.org or directly through the update function of wordpress.

Samba+Cups with 64bit Windows clients

The new Dell desktops we get at work, don’t come with an Windows XP license anymore. And I guess it’s kinda time to exchange the old XP installations, at least on the new desktops. But now we had the problem, that the current windows cups driver doesn’t support 64bit windows. Solution: Check out the current driver from the subversion repository. (Source)

So, that problem seems solved, but now I need a newer samba version to push the drivers to the clients. I’ve got the current Ubuntu 8.04 LTS version (3.0.28) and as far as I understand, I need a 3.4.x. Now I wait for the new LTS version of Ubuntu, which should arrive in April. Further information:

Mozilla Weave: Why?

I read a blog post about Mozilla Weave a few days ago and I’m happy Mozilla developed such a tool. But a few years too late, I’m now hooked completely on XMarks (formerly Foxmarks) and completely satisfied. Does anyone perhaps know, why I should or shouldn’t use Weave instead?

Emacs keybindings in gnome and firefox

For those who love their readline/emacs keybindings, you can have firefox and all gtk applications behave a little bit like that. This article describes how easy you can activate it and what keybindings there are. I recently created a new user profile for myself and missed the keybindings I got used to. To activate it under gnome, it’s enough to run the following command and have shortcuts like C-a, C-e or C-k work again. 🙂

gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_key_theme Emacs --type string
