I accidentally unpinned my Windows 7 Firefox taskbar icon. While I was able to re-add it easily enough, clicking it to open FF resulting in a duplicate icon being spawned which was where FF was opened. I had to google a bit to find a fix and here it is:
I was wondering earlier why the predominant color of Islam is green. This led me to wondering why it's also associated with emotions like envy and jealousy. Here are a few of the fruits of my dig deep down into the "emerald mine of knowledge" that is the Internet.
From Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice:
If you've ever visited a webserver's error page, it will usually state the error followed by information about the server. This will customarily tend to include the webserver software, its version, possibly information about some of the modules compiled in as well as the server's address and port. While this might look generous and helpful, it also allows bad guys as well as other parties to probe the server to find out what it is running as well as other details such as version information. This information can be used for nefarious purposes.
Every now and then I find myself subconsciously typing miniscule when I should actually be typing minuscule. I know that the latter is the correct spelling. Nevertheless, the former is so widely used nowadays that, and a lot of sources back this, it has become the spelling of choice when it comes to non-literary (colloquial) usage. Seeing it used so widely and so often is impressed on my brain and I literally can't help myself spell it that way when I'm in .. auto mode.
The new Google Analytics interface is quite nice if often annoying. One of the many issues I have been having with it is linking the Adsense account for one particular domain to its equivalent Analytics account. Most of the help documentation is for the previous version of the Analytics interface and the newer docs are not terribly helpful at all. The latter simply keeps asking me to go to the Admin tab and linking the Adsense account by clicking on it or something trivial like that.
Since it wasn't working well enough in Eclipse, I had to muddle around for a solution for the command-line. I found the one below and it's nifty:
Deleting a branch:
git push origin :mybranch
Deleting a tag:
git push origin :mytag
IOW, the syntax is identical for both tags and branches.
If you're trying to get your site to post tweets to Twitter using the Twitter module and if, in the process of authorising the application, you end up with a message asking you to go back to your site and enter a provided PIN number, then you are a bloody idiot.
Just as I was.
Drupal Twitter & Oauth modules: exception 'TwitterException' with message 'Read-only application cannot POST'
Today, I was trying to get Drupal to automatically announce new posts on Twitter. To do this, I had to install the Twitter and OAuth modules. Following instructions, I created an application on Twitter and linked my Drupal account to it configuring it to announce new posts upon publishing them. However, this did not work as I ran into the following long-winded error message in the logs:
When using Eclipse (Indigo) earlier today, I ran into the following error message while trying to push my commits upstream:
