I was working with a site that was using frames. Suddenly, one of the frames (which was hosted on a domain that differed from the one it was embedded in) displayed the following message (in Firefox 3.5.4):
This content cannot be displayed in a frame To protect your security, the publisher of this content does not allow it to be displayed in a frame. Click here to open this content in a new window
Notice how this is a native Firefox window and not a web page rendering. Quite stumped, I started looking at the frame response and finally found that it included this …
StackOverflow.com, SuperUser.com, ServerFault.com Fan? Here's A Greasemonkey Script To Keep Track Of All Your Accounts
What Is This All About?
If you, like me, love StackOverflow, SuperUser, ServerFault – the community programming/software/sysadmin Q&A sites built by Joel Spolsky and Jeff Atwood and you are an active member of these sites, you owe it to yourself to install this underappreciated and unadvertised greasemonkey script: StackOverflow – User Info Aggregate. I really think it should get more attention. All credit goes to Jon Erickson.
(What? You've never heard of the sites mentioned above and you call yourself a programmer? Shame on you – go check them out immediately!)
Once you install the script, the top bar that normally shows only single site statistics, like so:
will turn into a multi-site bar, with all …

Today is my first day looking at Android development. My first encounter with the Android plugin for Eclipse has not been very smooth, to say the least. I am not sure if it's Android's or Eclipse's fault but I just wasted 2 hours on errors during the plugin installation and would like to pass on the time savings to you.
The plugin install page provides initial instructions and the location of the plugin to give Eclipse (https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/). This is very standard stuff and I've installed many plugins exactly the same way. However, here's when problems started.

- the name of each window
- a clear marking of window states, such as
- the currently active window
