an awesome Open Directory browser and some other Open Directory viewers

Filed under: curiouserly, interweb — Seth Wisely @ 10:39

About opendir on apache2

What is an OpenDir?
A directory on a webserver that does not have an index file. Without this a module of the webserver instead displays a list of all the files — much like what an index.html originally did — unless that feature- or module has been disabled (and it ought not be).

Another perspective
Open Directory viewers INFLICT a gallery upon others’ resources

Can I simply view the directory myself with the web browser?
Sure. Feed the URL to firefox- or opera. But what if there are for or five scroll-pages of potentially awesome content? oh noes! lots of click-view-back

WARNING: Some NSFW usually.  These services are used for less than chaste image surfing.  While they are themselves SFW most usually throw out a gallery of NSFW — deplorable :sigh:.  [default: NSFW]  [default: NSFW]

Here instead are some smilies galleries, which is what I typically feed them

How can I find more OpenDir for smilies or smileys?”Index+of”+(smilies|smileys)&ie=utf-8


StripDir is hands down the best for me so far.

Open Directory browser viewing viewer autoindex fusker alternative


or create a handy thumbnail gallery of all your future new smilies

OpenDir smilies OpenDir smileys free smilies


plays well with firefox extension context menu: Rehost Image


the firefox bookmark library so far



OpenDir browsing is akin to fusker but does not require any legwork or character sequence bracketing!

CAUTION: Fusker is typically used for less than chaste activities.

help: FFmpeg preset auto selection by file type (windows)

Filed under: Stuff — Seth Wisely @ 10:18

XP SP2 or XP SP3
either CCCP or roll yer own FFmpeg

I would like a particular video profile preset to be autoloaded by either video codec or file extension.  Ideally some filename triggers would be nice.

No idea… arg… cross post to doom9 seems like a fine idea… low on patience today

looks like a duck

a little dated but a madness for the method on this workstation

FFmpeg automatically select video preset criteria

non-multi to speed test 700 megs


another great way to find functional multi-upload services: DO NOT install the crap software



preferred descending – only? one with file manager, a little broken 300 max filesize instead of 600 indicated  – waaaay behind youup in current file sizes

BEFORE investing time uploading a file be sure it is compatible with jDownloader

pandering to those with no self control? STOP

Filed under: Gulagosphere, knowledge can empower — Seth Wisely @ 20:13

Why does the industry cater to fatties who want low calorie ice cream or low fat brownies but will not create zero corn sweetener products for the health conscious?  All of us will die from old.  I would rather not compound death with self inflicted diabetes from corn.

@ corn propagandists

Drinking corn based vehicle fuel in moderation only causes moderate damage?  It’s made from corn so it must be safe?

The sugar “shortage” has been engineered. Fascism + free market = fail! Corn fuel paradise folly.  Unleash the free market and coerced corn growing will cease.  There isn’t enough land in America available to farm enough corn to replace “evil” fossil fuel.  If you’re an envirofacist reading this: shame on you.  The interweb is powered by “evil” fossil fuel.  Disconnect to save the planet!

Stock up on metformin.

ISP geoip location DHCP opt-out — why do so few people who understand care? (out loud)

Filed under: Less Insecure — Tags: — Seth Wisely @ 21:44

Remember opting-out of 24 dot range with cable modems?  How about a nice privacy feature for $1?  Only the most cretinous would find it challenging to implement.  Browser “opt” out is nowhere near sufficient since google can be trusted about as far as any of us can toss the moon.

privacy is ESSENTIAL to exercise of liberty


OT: Multi-Mcard DIY PVR does not fit into certain peoples’ walled garden mentality.  But random geoip DHCP will not interfere with IPTV draconia (ref “secret” infrastructure docs).
