Mediatomb to Pioneer BDP-440
Yesterday i got my new BluRay player. I got a Pioneer BDP-440 BlueRay player. And as it is suposed to play video from a DLNA server I wanted to install and get that going also.
So I did some search on the networks and after some reading it seems that one of the most used and the one I liked the most was Mediatomb.
Sendmail and smarthost and authenticated submission on port 587
Today I came across a small and interesting thing. One of our customer have been upgrading from suse to centos, and that also changed the mailer from postfix to sendmail. I consider myself a quite skilled sendmail person but this was a new one.

Firefox 5 and ask to save when close and app tabs
As I just said I have switched to Firefox 5 and is quite happy with it. But there are some small things one has to do to get it to work as I want.
Switch to firefox 5
I’m running Firefox as my main browser. I have chrome installed and I have been using it a bit but I don’t really like it (and I have had some interesting problems with it – like can’t go to page 2 on googles own search result). And I’m also using it for development and firebug and firephp is a necessary must for me. So I’m staying with Firefox.
Firefox plugin Master Password+
As I have been using firefox to store relative sensitive informations (like certificates) there is a STRONG recommendation to turn on Master Password. This encrypts and secure the databases for firefox (and thunderbird) so that cookies, passwords and certificates and so is protected. And even of someone can hack into you computer they cant get to that information.
