Firefox DNS cache clearing/disabling
Date: January 31st, 2010 by SiD3WiNDR
Categories: Computing, Interweb, Software

To disable the Firefox DNS cache, go to about:config in the address bar.
– Right click to select “New” -> “Integer”, enter “network.dnsCacheExpiration” as the preference name and “0″ as the integer value.
– Create another new integer called “network.dnsCacheEntries” as preference name and again enter “0″ as integer value

There is no facility to clear it, but possibly doing the above, then removing it again, could clear the cache.. Didn’t try it – just disabled it. My resolvers are on the local network so they can cache it for me – this way they ‘ll actually have something to do 😉

Dear Lazyweb,

Is there an extension for Firefox that makes it stable puts quotes around every word in a google query you do? I’m getting sick and tired of a search engine trying to “improve” my searches by polluting the results with matches that have nothing to do with the query thanks to changing the search words (eg junos->juno, newest->new, etc). If not, anyone feel like cooking one up? I will be eternally grateful, or will have to switch to Bing™ 🙁

Firefox 3’s retarded SSL handling
Date: November 16th, 2008 by SiD3WiNDR
Categories: Interweb

I switched to FF3 a while ago but quickly got fed up with the "friendly" and "secure" SSL certificate handling (for incorrect ones). Set the following in about:config and be happy:

  • browser.xul.error_pages.expert_bad_cert = true
  • browser.ssl_override_behavior = 2

This adds the "add exception" button to the info page and preloads the certificate already so you can just click add.

Power or the lack thereof

Following the cascade of power failures in Dutch Datacenters SARA and Nikhef, AMS-IX made some interesting changes to their Colocation POP Pages (hilighted in blue). It’d be funny if it wasn’t so very true 😉

Methinks eBay got their seasons a bit messed up – unless your definition of "close" varies from mine, spring isn’t really "close". or is it? Maybe I’m just mistaken… 😮

While updating my WordPress installation for the 187th time, anyone have the last version of PwnPress available somewhere? All Google links seem to lead to the end of the internetnowhere.

Caught the following spam in my mailbox: 

I write to bring to your notice that I am the Nigerian new foreign affairs minister and an official delegate from the United Nations To Central Bank Of Nigeria to pay 150 Nigerian 419 scam victims $1000,000.00 USD (One Million Dollars) each. You are listed and approved for this payment as one of the beneficiaries to be paid this amount as compensation.

Hmm. 😉
