the sky is falling on ad servers and google is losing ground :: reversing the table

Filed under: adblock, bookmarkified, double checking realty, Less Insecure — Seth Wisely @ 23:46

Wladimir is porting AdBlock Plus to Chromium (Chrome). I would preferer a XUL AdBlock Plus appplication as well for more flexibility with more browsers via local proxy.  Leave the browser to browsing, remember proxomitron glory, and maybe someday take a page from “google’s” playbook of multiple processes to keep multiple extension [bloat] from draggin’ us down.

brute force merrily along

[insert how to install adblock plus into droid x here where x could have as easily been y or n]

Seth Wisely said: more good XUL is more better

note to self: about:config trailing space OFF on that one laptop

Seth Wisely said: also thanks and kudos to Wladimir and the adblock pioneers upon whose shoulders he stands

den4b ReNamer is BEST renaming utility EVER and it is freeware too!

Filed under: bookmarkified, CIO, overview — Seth Wisely @ 20:43

den4b is a coding trooper.  Had it not been for paypal I would have happily sent my monthly movie watching budget to him in donations.  Yes, it is that awesome.  den4b ReNamer plays well as a portable application!

but wait there’s more.  den4b is responsive to well written, intelligent feature requests

I confess I did not find this utility myself but was recommend it by a friend.  Word of mouth — den4b has plenty of it.

I have tried several dozene renaming utilities, some freeware others shareware.  When I had found myself comparing them all to den4b ReNamer I stopped looking for alternatives seriously.  Now and again a forum or article will suggest a renaming tool not yet known to me — for kicks I’ll try it.  ReNamer continues to win.

insert, replace, strip, regex. masking/selection, validation


PacalScript, userscripts, presets, library of other user scripts … the power flows well beyond ReNamers GUI.  Create a list of rules in the stack and see real time preview — this makes learning the advanced features orders of magnitude simplerCleanup those files for the media center:


Now if only manual editing could would allow the program to generate a set of rules… replace your existing mp3 renaming tool with this!  I realize high praise is not the same as cash, but for now it is the best I can offer (as paypal is evil)


a fantastic interface option is being able to set the text in the two respective drag-n-drop panes… mwahaha

un”upgrading” firefox 3 interface with CSS

Filed under: bookmarkified, interweb — Seth Wisely @ 14:28

Eric Wendelin makes firefox3 bookmark add dialog less cretinous since fox “upgrade”


I’ve been using this “forever”.  I cannot wait to see what other interface “upgrades” are in store — since I’m not a fan of beta OS or beta browsers since the joy of profile corruption despite appropriate command line switches ages ago.. don’t trust them.

firefox4 “addons manager” still is almost entirely useless in regards to “management” oh boy.

August 18, 2010 planning new project: ?

Filed under: bookmarkified, interweb — Seth Wisely @ 14:04

Perhaps it will fill the niche of the formerly amazing ‘free’ file hosting service.  It would allow one to upload a file of ‘any’ size and their backend would generate RAR spans, and URL to download from multiple ‘free’ file hosts NS allows one to upload a file up to 400 megs (via extremely vexing web form) to up to 14 of 20+ various ‘free’ file hosting providers.  It then generates one URL from which one may choose an individual host.  Advantage?  While a certain host is on timer or “bandwidth exceeded” there is another host in the array to complete a download of a RAR span — either manually or with spiffy java- or PHP tools 🙂

Hopefully MirrorCreator / spreadfiles will offer FTP uploading soon.
