Uugh, I spent nearly an hour last night making fetchmail do SSL cert checking for all my mail accounts. I finally upgraded bender to OpenBSD 3.8, so I was thinking about how all my private keys had changed. I was able to set up a CA and sign my own stunnel cert on bender, but I couldn't get fetchmail to verify the certs from my real ISPs. I ended up just putting the fingerprints in my fetchmailrc. Lame.

Resources: fetchmail & SSL; Stunnel certificates FAQ; simple ssl cert howto... and don't forget to c_rehash!

Then I woke up this morning and my right eye was all red and hurty. This has happened before, a couple of times. I finally got some drops in (tilt head back, pull eyelid out, drop) and now at least it's not red anymore. Apparently Aleve doesn't relieve eye pain.

I haven't seen anyone mention ajaxWrite yet. The "ajax" part seems to be XUL and javascript. I don't believe this is the future of office applications, but it's neat. I guess it's because of browser limitations that there are no keyboard shortcuts. Sorry, but I think I could actually type <span style="font-weight: bold"> in the time it takes to switch to the mouse, find the bold button, and then switch to the keyboard again. Also, you're pretty much stuck with mozilla.

I'm also updating world on gentoo, which I haven't done since 2005. So yeah, I'll let you know when that finishes :P

Yeah, I didn't feel any need to mention Ajaxwrite since it locks out Opera and IE in favor of using XUL. It just seems like we can't really expect people to take Mozilla seriously if we bemoan the fact that we can't use websites that require ActiveX but suddenly a bunch of websites pop up that require XUL.
I loaded it up (while it was still suffering from the digg effect, took four attempts and about 5 minutes on the final attempt to actually load) and then navigated away. I'll give Writely a look when Google gets around to inviting me to the beta.

I gave this ajax thing the ol' 10 seconds to impress me test. Hearing the name Ajax brings to mind things that are not typing programs.

The actual program won points for looking similar to Word. Then lost 10 bajillion points for not saying anything at all when I hit the 'X' to close the window after typing a few lines in. So much for any unsaved work.
