Been too long

Posted 08-11-2015 at 12:57 AM by zaivala

It has been so long I forgot I even *had* a blog here.

Welcome to another installment of "I don't know what I'm doing, and this is not how you do it anyhow."

That machine only ran Ubuntu for so long before I started beating my head (which had not yet absorbed enough) against walls and getting little help. Then a friend bought me a 64-bit Win7 Pro disk. I was running Lighthouse64 and Puppy on it from time to time.

A few months ago, I was given...

[solved] HTML5 Youtube with no video on Firefox/Iceweasel, in Debian testing/Stretch

Posted 08-10-2015 at 01:04 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Googling a little bit about, some solutions to the same symptoms pointed to needing to install something like gstreamer-ffmpeg. But not only that's unavailable in the latest Debian testing (Stretch), but it seems it's the other way around: for me it started to work again when I deactivated something related to gstreamer on about:config.

Doing so doesn't seem to have affected anything else (namely flash videos). But I feel that now HTML5 on youtube is somewhat heavier, buy maybe it...

Icedove: Cleanly reply to a message from a web archive

Posted 08-09-2015 at 08:08 PM by jere21

When you reply to a message, Icedove (Thunderbird) adds the <message-id> of the replied to message in your new mail's header field "In-Reply-To".

If you want to answer to a post in a mailinglist that you read in a web archive of the mailinglist, but hadn't been subscribed to it previously (so you don't have the replied-to message in your mailbox) you can do this manually (if the web archive lists the message id).
