Happy 60th birthday dad! // at 23:59

Interesting suggestion popped up during discussion on my destruction of my laptop. Since we haven't got ACAP working for everything™, fiddle it with an IMAP folder holding all my config files as MIME attachments or such.

Phew! I think I've mostly recovered from destroying my laptop. "Upgrading" from Windows2000 to WindowsXP failed, destroying the partition table (who knows how) and of course I hadn't got backups of some of my most recent photos, so the following I only have thumbnails and medium size images left.

I've been attempting to get my old webcam working under WindowsXP on the laptop, the installer keeps crashing due to some parts of an old version of the software. I've written to the tech support from LifeView, but judging by the poor instructions that arrived with the original software, I don't expect a response.

Following on from yesterday, Mozilla's SVG+MathML build is now working again with our proxy service.

So here are two test pages for me:

Or maybe even an embedded sample:

Mozilla seems to have recovered from its mishap of Monday and yesterday. The daily build is back to working with the authenticating proxy. Letting this be a lesson to me, I've now got three builds on my machine! Last stable release (0.9.9), the current daily, and the current SVG+MathML build (which lags the daily a bit, but is of more interest to me.

Book shops, book shops... I ended up ordering dad's present direct from the press, under one week delivery rather than the rather vague “we'll order it and it should be here in a fortnight or two...”

Two maniacs/motorists that just have to be mentioned:

  • A blue/green Toyota Seca, rego. Vic. FSA-723. Why was he weaving around at 85km/hr in the right-hand lane of the freeway where the speed limit is 100km/hr? He had a bowl of cereal in his lap and was eating it with a spoon! Scary thing is that he might be the one I saw a few weeks ago eating cereal in his car.
  • Blue WRX, decided that me on the motorbike doing 50 in a 50 zone wasn't good enough, blast on the horn, overtakes up the bicycle lane, then swerves out toward me as part of turning left up the next side street.

Since I've been playing with Mozilla, I guess its time to try some of those newer features that it supports. MathML would be a good start... E = m c 2

Ouch! Looks like I broke that one. More testing needed before I can successfully mix PHP and XML and not crash browsers or the PHP interpreter!

A little update to my photos URL rewriting and I should finally have the php index displaying working correctly. At least it seems to be for the folders of pictures from the digital camera. More work seems to be needed for the APS folders.

Temper temper… // at 23:59

I just had to laugh. Cycling up Beach Road on a Sunday afternoon, literally hundreds of cyclists about, traffic is at a crawl due to the enormous number of events that are on. Red Falcon (Vic. NZY-740) drives past in the right hand lane and the passenger sticks her head out the window, screaming her lungs out “Get off the F@#$ing road, get on the F@#$ing footpath.” If she yells that much at each cyclist between Mordialloc and St Kilda, she'll be hoarse for a week!
