Bzr and launchpad tricks: firefox plugin
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

If you work with bazaar, you have seen its URIs. You can find the complete list is in the bzr help urlspec. Although I commonly use only a subset of that, like bzr+ssh:// and

In addition I often use Launchpad aliases, such as lp:~maria-captains/maria/5.3-serg/, lp:maria/5.3, and lp:869001.

It has been a while since I posted on my blog - in fact, I believe this is the first time ever that more than one month passed between posts since I started blogging. There are a couple of reasons for the lag:

Back in January 2009, we found out that the Malaysian Government had saved about RM40 million using open source.

Back to Firefox

After a good while (I can’t search my Twitter stream) on Chrome I’m switching back to Firefox as my primary browser, and actually uninstalled Chrome. Why? I was getting the “Oh snap” failure page all the time, even on Google’s own Youtube! The only support I was pointed to was this page, and when I followed the instructions there when I restarted Chrome everything was gone. The sentence “copy the relevant files from the “Backup User Data” folder to your new “User Data” folder.” is useless when you consider the folder …

Blog Statistics 2009
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Others have done it, so why shouldn’t I do it, too? Well, usually that’s not my line of thought, but when today I read David Linsin's blog post about his stats I thought I might follow along.

Overall stats

The overall visits to my blog – and countless others with no doubt – display the workday/weekend jagged line one would expect. The summer months seem to be a little lower on average, but that’s ok, people deserve their vacations. Blue line is 2009, green line is 2008 for comparison.

Tool of the Day: Firefox Tab Kit extension
+1 Vote Up -2Vote Down

We often need many tabs open in a browser, and horizontal tabs become unmanageable. Tab Kit allows you to have them vertically on the left, with various additional configuration choices.

I opted for the tree structure, so when I open a tab from another one it’ll show up as a child to the original. I can “lock” tabs so they cannot be closed by an accidental click or keypress. They get a “read” marker so if you open a few tabs and leave them till later you can still tell which ones you’ve actually already looked at. And there’s colour coding also.

In short, a great help. Just click the Tools/Add-Ons menu in Firefox and find Tab Kit in the extensions. Install, configure, and enjoy!

How To Fight Clickjacking (Using The Recent Twitter Hijacking As An Example)
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down


Clickjacking is a malicious technique of tricking web users into revealing confidential information or taking control of their computer while clicking on seemingly innocuous web pages. A vulnerability across a variety of browsers and platforms, a clickjacking takes the form of embedded code or script that can execute without the user's knowledge, such as clicking on a button that appears to perform another function (credit: Wikipedia).

Clickjacking is hard to combat. From a technical standpoint, the attack is executed …
