Stumbled across a neat site the other day while in an IRC chat called Pastebin
. A contributor wanted people to review his source code so he put it out on a site called http://pastebin.ca
The site is designed so that you can post, comment and retrieve someone’s source code for review. The site also offers a way to comment and highlight the code. There are various levels of control from a completely public area to a username/password option to view a post. Pastebin also offers to expire the post based on a time period of your choosing.
In short, a easy quick online collaboration tool.
Firefox comes with multiple search sites in the Search Bar in the upper-right corner. The only one that I use on a regular basis is the default google one. I had other search engines that I wanted to add and I wanted to remove the ones that I didn’t use. The process of removing search engines will be an exercise left to the reader.
The process of adding your own search engine is fairly straight forward. The following example shows you how to connect the sgmlxml.net blog search engine to the google Search Bar in Firefox.
- Navigate to the firefox/searchplugins directory
- Create a file named sgmlxml.src
- Edit the sgmlxml.src file as follows
sgmlxml.src File Example
name="SGMLXML Blog Search"
description="SGMLXML Blog Search"
<input name="s" user>
<inputnext name="start" factor="10">
<input name="ie" value="utf-8">
<input name="oe" value="utf-8">
charset = "UTF-8"
