Neglected

Dec. 30, 2005, 1:44 p.m.

If you are a frequent visitor to this site, I hope you will be sad to see that it has fallen into neglect. The neglect is reflected by the log stats too, this week the site has delivered only half as many pageviews as it did the last week of November. Now it could be because of the holidays. I am ho ...

Yum my Firefox

Dec. 14, 2005, 12:10 p.m.

Finally found a YUM repository that has firefox 1.5. It's a place called nrpms. The yum update went very smoothly, none of the hassles found in the binary download on mozilla.com or the RPMs available all over the place.Since all the plug ins have to be reinstalled, I thought this is the best time t ...

Apache 2.20 has been released. One of the most exciting features (as far as I am concerned) is large file support. Yes you can now use your favourite webserver to upload and download files greater than 2Gb in size. Naturally the ablity to upload such large files makes me very excited. Let's get on ...

Getting started with Cold Fusion.

Dec. 6, 2005, 9:34 a.m.

After having gone through the thoroughly boring installation steps for Cold Fusion MX 7, now it's time to figure out how to start the server. They seem to have conviniently forgotten to put this information in a readme file or to include it in the getting started page on the Macromedia site.. A quic ...

ColdFusion leaves me cold

Dec. 4, 2005, 1:47 a.m.

I am trying out Cold Fusion for the very first time. There was a big fuss many years ago about cold fusion of Hydrogen. It turned out to be a damp squib. Coldfusion software leaves me a bit cold. The download is a whopping 276Mb. There are complete linux distros that include JVMs and GCC that happen ...

Firefox One and a Half

Dec. 2, 2005, 3:55 a.m.

Downloaded firefox 1.5, like the last time I tried to install firefox things refused to go smoothly. Interesting that the download site has changed to mozilla.com. What hasn't changed is the insistence that they do a browser detection and try to force a file down your throat.The firefox-1.5.tar.gz f ...
