How do you turn off accesskeys in Wikipedia? It’s a real bother, and a quick glance at the code doesn’t show a simple way to turn it off for the two most obnoxious uses, Alt-E (which trumps the Edit menu selection in Windows) and Alt-F (which does the same for the File menu).

My hard drive is very unhappy, which means that I can’t do any of the experimental hacking I was hoping to do on the plane on the way back tomorrow. It’s fascinating that having a drive that causes the OS to complain (mildly but scarily) when lots of new files are created has basically no [...]
Sigh. Things aren’t quite right in the computer department. Thunderbird is using 170,394Kb of memory after running for 10 minutes. My hard drive is flaking out while at a conference.

Not too surprisingly given the buzz around Python, there are big names (although we’ve had big [...]
Sitting here at ETech, just after Erik Smartt, product manager for the Python on Nokia product, gave the first real public demo of the Symbian/Series 60 port of Python. The highlight was a PyOpenGL demo (the code isn’t available yet, and the author is not public either). Click on the picture for the Quicktime movie. [...]
In which I wax hypothetical on what comes after the Web 2.0 programming model.
Cal Henderson, from flickr, at the PHPWest conference: “Avoid code reuse (just a nice typo)” and, talking about phpxpath: “phpxpath is great. It’s on Sourceforge, but it’s still great” and about UTF8: “Can’t remember what UTF-8 stands for. Something something something eight!” a bit that made Rasmus and me feel old: “I think UUencode stands [...]

Nice to see that Tim Bray is helping Sun learn about dynamic languages. I wish I’d been a fly on that wall, if for no other reason that the weather down there looks nice!
