View cookies for current page in Internet Explorer

This has been a godsend for me today:

Drop: javascript:alert(document.cookie); into the address bar of any page, and get a jscript alert with all the cookies and their values set for that page.

Now if I could only view the full headers and post data in IE.. (like ya can in Firefox with the web developer extension)

V for Vendetta

Saw this on Saturday. Great movie - I reccomend it. Has a slightly 1984 feel to it.

Stuff I want to do

Not New Years resolutions, but close :-)

  • Join a gym - learn Pilates and Yoga and get back into swimming
  • Get back into painting - bought some paints, just gotta get inspired now!
  • Photography - learn how to take really good pictures, not just OK holiday snaps. Want to make some money out of it selling stock photography. Have made a few $$ so far, but to really make money, I need to learn how to take better shots. And find out what type of imagery sells well!
  • Graphic design - got the photoshop basics, need some projects now
  • Squeeze 30 hours into a 24 hour day

Why is ClearQuest such a nightmare to use? I cant even print out the entire
details of a single bug without having Crystal reports installed... arghh!

Firefox and Windows Authentication

If you need windows Auth in firefox do the following:

  • Open firefox
  • Browse to about:config
  • Filter for "“network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trused-uris"
  • Modify the value and enter in your intranet sites that you must pass your username and password to (comma seperated list). - no restart needed.

Greased lightmonkey


I'm really liking this greasemonkey script - it's a modified version of the lightbox javascript concept.
Great for use in flickr or google images :-)

A slip of the finger

Not sure the agent really knows what they're looking for in this job
ad:

"Elite client is searching for an experienced Tester to work no
exciting top
secret MOD defence contracts. ..."

I cant say I'ld want to work no exciting top secret contracts.
