S…l….o….w….

Looks like domains hosted under my account with Dreamhost are really, really slow (more so than usual). Apologies for that, I’ll try and look into a new hosting plan somewhere when I get back from overseas.

Flash! Ah ah, king of the impossible

I don’t have much call to view flash content, but thought I’d test out this new fancy (alpha) 64 bit flash plugin from Adobe.

The tarball contains only one file, libflashplayer.so. Extract this to ~/.mozilla/plugins and restart firefox.
NOTE: You must remove any previous versions of flash before doing this. I didn’t have to cause I didn’t already have it installed.

After this it was listed in about:plugins and it was time to test youtube. Surprise, surprise, it just worked. It’s almost wrong.

If only they had open sourced the damn thing, we would have had 64 bit years ago.

Lest We Forget

Today is Remembrance Day and the 90th Anniversary of The Armistice, which symbolically marked the end of World War I.

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we will remember them.
