"[...]we have omitted some entries very similar to the 813 already displayed"

Yeah, I was bored...
But this helps:

javascript: location.href = document.getElementById('nn').parentNode.href;

Combined with a fast Alt+D > Ctrl+V ;)

mip my map

Just picked up this news from Tinic Uro, the Flash Player master guru from our beloved Adobe.
Seems that the very latest release of the Flash Player has a nice addition in the form of Mip Mapping. Ant it took only 1Kb f compressed code. Wow!
The catch is that it's good only for static bitmaps ( preferably smoothed) , smoothed video and even sizes. Better make that dividable by 8...
Well I suppose they'll soon introduce an "optimize image for Flash mip mapping" feature in ImageReady :D

"up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2"

Apple just released the 3'rd version of their Safari browser. The Public Beta works on Windows too and so far tests had shown that the rendering is identical to the one on Mac.

The fonts look weird too!
I'm curious about the Flash Player behavior. It seems that it uses the Firefox plugin and I've already found a problem similar to the hit bug but for very small areas only. And a complex layout ofcourse.
But that would be a small issue compared to the security flaws claimed to be already spotted by David Maynor. The Slashdot crowd shows a great deal of skepticism on the story but nevertheless caution is advised.
Ahhh, what am I saying here?!
Just get the damn thing and see it for yourself!
:O Wohoooo!
