I've updated my Firefox Tips and Tricks page. This was the first major update since Firefox 2.x, so there have been quite a few changes and updates. I also added a new section for custom styles, mostly for fixing Firefox UI quirks.
Hope you find this helpful.
After a nearly two year hiatus, I finally got around to updating Universal Extractor. This release focuses heavily on bug fixes, reliability improvements, and component updates, so the "new features" list is rather short. It is, however, an important update and I recommend all Universal Extractor users upgrade when they get the chance. It also includes several new and updated translations. Please check out the changelog for all the details.
This is something I've been meaning to add to the site for quite a long time. In the Navigation menu on the left side of the screen, you'll find a new News Categories link. Click on that and you'll see a list of all terms used to categories posts on this site. Click on any term and you'll see a list of all posts in that category. This provides and easy way to, for example, see posts relating to all of my software projects or tips and tricks.
It's also possible to grab RSS feeds for specific categories. For example, if you're only interested in posts about software updates, browse to the Software category, then select the RSS feed icon provided through that page.
Please report any problems in the comments. Thanks.
Beginning at about midnight on Friday night / Saturday morning (11/14), I'm taking down the LegRoom.net e-mail server for some maintenance and upgrades. In the process I'm going to be copying mail to a new location, so I don't want any new mail coming in during that process as it may get dropped.
Once the upgrade is complete and the new configuration is properly tested, I'll bring the mail server back up. This should be done by Saturday afternoon. I'll post an update here once it's complete.
Update 11/14 04:00: E-mail is back up.
I just (mostly) finished a major upgrade of the LegRoom.net website backend (Drupal, for those who are curious). Although the site should look and feel the same, I had to make some pretty substantial changes to complete the upgrade. As a result, some parts of the site may not look the same, some functionality may be different or missing, etc. Please notify me ASAP if you find any problems. Some examples:
The following issues are currently known:
Due to the ever-growing number of spam posts on my forum from GMail accounts, I've had to disable the ability to use GMail addresses when registering for a new account on this site. If you're a (legitimate) GMail user trying to register for this site, I'm afraid you'll need to use an alternate e-mail address from now on. Existing accounts are not affected.
I apologize for the inconvenience.
Apparently this was affecting existing accounts. I was just notified of this problem and removed the block. I'll need to find another way to address this. If you were having trouble logging in recently and received the error message, "The name username is registered using a reserved e-mail address and therefore could not be logged in," you should now be able to login again. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience.
I justed added a section for miscellaneous script section to my Software page. These are various scripts that I've written over the years for my own use, but I'd like to share them with others that may be able to benefit from them. Please note, however, that unlike the other applications I've released on my site (UniExtract, Convert to FLAC, etc.), these scripts are much less polished and robust. Please keep this in mind and review source code running any of them.
Right now there are only a handful of scripts there, but there are plenty of more that I'd like to add when I get the time (some require a little more cleanup than others).
To review and download the scripts:
