Re: The backup site is now https!

Have you considered using Let's Encrypt to obtain a free trusted certificate? That will remove the need for adding an exception and will get you one of those green padlocks in the address bar. See https://helloworld.letsencrypt.org/ for an example.

Re: Why is the popup function important?

My colleagues hate me when I bring this up, but I have a strong belief that people, as web browser users are generally becoming more savvy and more comfortable handling their choice of web browser. I figure the "open in new window" thing came from the days when we didn't have tabs, middle-...

Re: Gnome wallpaper changer

this is bordering on an obsession now but here is an update to my gnome wallpaper changer. I wanted to try out argparse in python (It's not really as flexible as I had hoped but maybe I am missing something) but now it seems a little more sensible to use. This runs without cron like "wallpaper_...

Re: The weirdest website?

Some of those are quite funny, actually. Don't know what that says about my sense of humour.

Now I am not knocking it completely as I am a regular on /w/ and /wg/ but parts of http://4chan.org are __really__ weird, probably because of the anonymous thing they have going on there.

Re: Gnome wallpaper changer

Done this one to death I think ( : but I recently switched to the xfce4 desktop as gnome was getting in my way a little. So I re-wrote my wallpaper changer script for my dual monitor setup and set to run on startup. See: https://github.com/rvause/stuff/blob/master/randomwallpaper/wallpaper_changer_x...

Re: Gnome wallpaper changer

Here is a link to my solution. It will take an argument (path of a wallpaper) so if you add a launcher for it on your panel you can drag and drop wallpapers on the launcher to change. Only clicking the launcher would pick a random wallpaper. You can provide a path to wallpapers folder in wallpaper.p...
