Today I wondered that my safari browser (3.2.1) was taking 100% cpu just by displaying the apple page.

I've noticed that the blacklist-database for fraudulent websites seems to be broken.
If you have these problems try to disable that feature in the settings -> security dialog.
If you need the feature quit Safari first and execute the following command then:

sudo rm -r /private/var/folders/*


If you restart Safari now it'll rebuild your blacklist-database.

I was getting tired of the mass of new INBOX folders with new Trashes and Sent folders. There is actually no real fix from apple, but some other guys found a workaround for it, and it worked perfect.

So follow this link: http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=8357354#8357354

Since Pidgin Version 2.1.1 (atm till 2.2.0) some of the AIM/ICQ buddies are more than one time in your buddy list.

It seems that it is caused by the server, that holds a buddy in more than one group.

There is also a ticket at the bugtracker of Pidgin, there you can also download a patch I've written, that will fix the problem.

Due to license reasons the support of 3GP is not implemented in mplayer. You can play 3GP movies in mplayer but you wont hear sound.

Now you have to compile the amr support into your libavcodec.

Once again, after a longer time, I'll update this page again.
First of all, there's a new design, I hope you enjoy it.

Also I've written two new very small scripts, so you can post your current track played with amarok to users in gaim or XChat.

Script-Download for Gaim
Just put it into your gaim plugins directory, mostly .gaim/plugins and restart gaim and enable it. To use it, just use !np in the conversation window

Script-Download for XChat
Just put it into your XChat directory, mostly .xchat2. You can either load it by using /load .xchat2/amarokinfo-xchat.pl or restarting XChat. The usage is: /np

I hope you enjoy it :-)

After some boring times, i've just written a small c program to check if a user exists on a system.
It has various exitcodes, so you can easily use it with other programs to check for a user.

# ./isuser
Usage: ./isuser

# ./isuser root
User root exist and has the UID 0
