Selenium RC Firefox 3.0 support on Ubuntu Hardy

If you've upgraded Selenium RC to the latest build you may be disappointed to find that while it supports Firefox 3 now, it can't start Firefox 3 “out of the box” on Ubuntu Hardy. Easy to fix.

Nordic explorations

We don't know what exactly is going on here (oil exploration?) but since it involves polar bears, icebreakers and submersibles, polar bears checking out the ships, guys standing around in places that look like they're about to go through the ice, polar bears, helicopters and hey, polar bears, we reckon it was probably cool fun.

Dunedin & Otago trip photos

I've posted a bunch of photos from my trip down to see family & friends in Dunedin, Otago NZ, last week. We had remarkably good conditions on a couple of days (considering it's winter!).

It's hard not to like the EU, especially when it's turning out amusing videos like this.

Multiple IPs with Xen vif-route

There's a small issue with bringing up Xen dom-Us with multiple IPs bound to an interface if you're using routed networking (vif-route) instead of bridging. There's an easy adjustment to fix this which works fine for me.
