Gmail Updated

leave a comment »

Gmail’s new version rolled out for me today, and first thing I noticed that it had reset my gmail chat config (basically I had switched off gmail chat), my greasemonkey scripts were broken and I had a firebug extension warning on top.

While I have no gripe about greasemonkey, resetting gmail chat setting means I’ve to check rest of my settings to be sure anything else is not broken.

New version seems quicker, with additional options in “More Actions” menu and updated “Contacts” section.

I Nuked My Firefox Bookmarks

with one comment

While playing with Firefox profiles, I accidentally deleted all my profiles. Murphy was an optimist and, of course, I had no backups.

Apparently, Firefox deletes profile files permanently without moving them to trash first. I tried using “Free Undelete” to recover my profiles (which were in a non-standard location in first place – somewhere on my H: drive). Most of the files were recovered but my bookmarks were all gone, along with a few of my Firefox extensions.

Direct Link to IMDb Movie Quotes

leave a comment »

A small greasemonkey script to get direct link to a quote on IMDb’s “memorable quotes” page. This script creates a “#” with a link to corresponding quote.
