http://stereopsis.com/flux/ Everyone I know who has tried this program loves it. It is small and free. It adjusts your computer’s display so that it’s not blasting your eyes at night. When you try it, things will look a little weird at first. Then, you’ll turn it off after a while and scream OH GOD NO […]

If you use the Bad Behavior antispam plugin, and your WP install just locked out you and your friends and your load balancer itself, it’s because of this: http://www.bad-behavior.ioerror.us/2007/12/06/bad-behavior-2011/ Area Bad Behavior Software Shows Bad Behavior. Upgrade or face doom.

There’s a sweet little desktop app for OSX called Huevos. It’s tiny and free, and it’s a search helper. You pick a search site, type in your search, and your browser of choice fires up and searches. I recommend it! You can drop in your own searches, so I took out the ones I didn’t […]

If you’re a consumer, in which category I include ordinary members of organizations, citizens, enlisted men in the service etc., there is no point in telling the organization about a problem. Try telling the call center at your telephone company about a problem with the phone’s software. Try telling the sad vest-wearing people at the […]

Years ago I preserved and posted a thoroughly insane HOWTO for PostgreSQL. The author, a very earnest madman, begins talking about the philosophy of open source software and goes straight down the rabbit hole into discussions of quantum physics and the nature of matter. Today I received this message from the mailing list for open […]

One of our internal webservers at the office blew up. It’s an intricate and bizarre hack on a little-used platform, and we’re terrified of it dying because our knowledge of the internals is bad.
