Seraphiel 0.61 released!

August 21, 2007

The new version will remember your attack force (briefly) to make it a bit easier to double/triple/etc tap.

It also fixes up a couple issues:

  • Doing a SoM on a Gnome no longer results in an annoying error message
  • Issues with copy/pasting into Angel have been resolved
  • A couple tweaks to the kingdom page

And the code continues to get cleaner, little by little :p

Both the extension and the script have been updated (granted, I have been somewhat more consistent about doing both lately).


Of memes and mobiles: Part 2

August 16, 2007

A little over a year ago, I mentioned a noxious company called DC Marketing with a mobile phone scam. I’m afraid I’m a little late to this party, but the Australian Communications Media Authority fined them almost $150,000 a couple of weeks ago.

The system works!

6 tags to crash IE….

August 8, 2007

Slashdot may be bored by the 6 tags that can crash IE, but even so, I thought it was interesting.

Here’s the code:

<style>*{position:relative}</style><table><input /></table>

Indeed, if you take that and save it onto your hard drive, you can crash Windows Explorer just by selecting it (YMMV depending on the version of IE and the operating system: I’m using IE6 on Windows XP Professional (32-bit)).

Use the leftMouseButton to grab on the control points and drag.

It is very rocky. It is your responsibility to respect all legal aspects.
Duration of an activity that began in the past and continues to the
present. It is worth noting that for performance reasons, delaying as
much as possible is often a good idea.
Then the time came to give the talk, and here are these monster minds
in front of me, waiting. An unusual situation can arise that puts
Windows in an infinite loop when the ES register holds the selector
to a discardable code segment.
But I think I see what you mean. Alternately, you can install
Microsoft Posting Acceptor 2.
Then I got up and stood behind her. I lit a cigarette.
FramerD was originally developed at MIT’s Media Laboratory by Ken
Haase. Jefri Olsndot, you are someone I want very much to meet.
And yet, as you see, I will not touch the creature. When an
application passes the handle returned by CreateCompatibleDC to one
of the drawing functions, the requested output does not appear on a
device’s drawing surface.
Maybe there are others like me and others who have found a solution,
might be good if we get an answer to this. Those Tsorteans must think
we’re simple.
It is zero if the function failed. Single-element operations return
positions, where a non-NULL value indicates that it worked.
It is your side that needs that little homily, I think. Maybe I can
work them into the package some way.
This can be used to avoid that a contained item matches in the start
or end pattern. It isn’t like we had some money laid by to take care
of emergencies.
He’s always bad then. As we have seen, that is what causes activation
object persistence.

Yay! More image spam!

If you want more of this sort of rubbish, I guess you’ll just have to read something from that no good fish pirate. It makes almost as much sense as the above.
