Email disaster with Opera

Posted 12-08-2012 at 08:11 PM by flshope

I do my email using Opera. Opera is fast as a browser and it's convenient to open web links from emails in the same application.

A few days ago, I had an email disaster. I had just switched from internet work to email only to find, much to my horror, that all my current and previously stored emails had disappeared. Somewhat surprisingly, Opera's email client continued to work normally in terms of downloading and manipulating new emails. I had not been backing up the .opera directory....

Here's a weird one that recently hit the Gentoo repositories:


Basically, it replays the access log for your Web server - video game style! Using opengl, it transforms your Web log into a colorful version of Pong: each time you get a hit, the paddle for that virtual host (if in vhost paddle mode) intercepts the ball, also displaying the return code and the page accessed.

Fixed a bug in mc2 noticed here.

mc2 and new-make demos and/or sandbox installations for whatever purpose you like.

LEDA 6.3 with (mostly) working 'test'files and
Xerces 3.11 sandbox installers.

Here's a couple of examples that install into a sandbox HOME/usr32 which requires ~/usr32/bin in your PATH and ~/usr32/lib in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH to use.

new mc2 and new-make versions

The new mc2 version includes some stuff to allow more targets without getting your hands dirty modifying the output makefile. More templates.

[Save your old templates before installing this version, if you have any. They might get overwritten.]

The new new-make has better 'make finddeps' dependency output and a couple...
