Dirty spam-bags

| No Comments

Spammers Media logistics uk, have just been ruled against by a uk court, found guilty of being Spammers. All I can say is, serves them right, and I wonder if I've had any spam off them and can sue them?

Reported on the BBC News site, the company was charged �270 and �30 costs. I wonder if someone is going to write a howto guide about how to nail the spammers.

Cinderella Panto

| No Comments

I went to see the Cinderella pantomime in Liverpool at the Empire theatre the other day (Saturday, Christmas eve). Benjamin, who we went for, was asleep for the start, and wasn't too impressed by it, but he was a good boy and didn't cry or want to leave, so we'll call that a success.

The panto itself had Julian Clary as a 'new' character 'Dandini' the prince's aide / valet / best man/ something or other. Cue camp jokes, "But you're ring is so expensive", something about snowballs, etc, etc. Oh and some camp classic entrances, charriot drawn by 2 kinky leatherbound slaves, arriving on a huge glittering high healed shoe, and more of the like.

Firefox Extensions

So I thought I'd list a few extensions that go with firefox, some that I can't do without, some I use a bit and some I just started with :

Cookie splitting with Apache XSSI

| No Comments

Reference :


Cookies can be split up pretty simply using XSSI's 'if expr' statement and the Perl compatible regular expressions (PCRE) it is capable of.

In the last 10 years I've been quite disillusioned, disenfranchised and all round disappointed with the Television output from the TV, specifically in the entertainment part of the BBC's holy trinity statement of "Inform, Entertain ad Educate". I mean BBC always keeps up the quality of production, but dull and repetetive just doesn't cover it. But just recently things are getting better...

Indiana Jones, so great!

| No Comments

I must just say, watching Temple of Doom on a Saturday afternoon (even if it only happens on Christmas eve), where did this type of film go? High excitement, a total rollercoaster of a film; Gadgets, mysticism, leather whips, and a proper hero.

URL Decoder

| No Comments

I use this for devloping stuff, Url Decoder and Encoder, its really quite handy for decoding cookies too.

Ajax two

| No Comments

Well I say Ajax 2, but really its just that with document innerHTML stuff.

Plan in the end, suggesting search terms script with a pop up div.

I'm sure I could find it elsewhere, but I'd prefer to do it 'from first priciples' or whatever, which roughly translates as doing it myself.

oh and the demo still doesn't work with IE, but then if it did I'd have to make the css produced work with IE too, and I can't be arsed to start with.

alert('innerHTML test')

My first Ajax

| No Comments

Its been a long time without a blog entry, and now I have a little reason.

My First Ajax

<script>function evalRequest(url) {
     var xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
     xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = function() {
          if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200) {
     }"GET", url, true);
then a <body onload="evalRequest('')">

pointing to a file containing

alert ("Hello World")

yes, it doesn't work in IE, but I don't care to start with.
