Must have Thunderbird/Seamonkey Addons

If you don’t know about Thunderbird, then you’ve been living under a rock. Its a small, lightweight, Email application provided free by the Mozilla foundation. I was looking around for Thunderbird add-ons this evening and found a couple that I found to be a “Must Have” for anyone that uses Thunderbird as their primary email client. I’ll list them off in no particular order: Enigmail – OpenPGP message encryption and authentication for Thunderbird and Seamonkey.

If you don’t know about Thunderbird, then you’ve been living under a rock. Its a small, lightweight, Email application provided free by the Mozilla foundation. I was looking around for Thunderbird add-ons this evening and found a couple that I found to be a “Must Have” for anyone that uses Thunderbird as their primary email client. I’ll list them off in no particular order:

Enigmail – OpenPGP message encryption and authentication for Thunderbird and Seamonkey.

Quote Colors – Configure text and background colors for different quote levels in mail/news messages which are applied when reading or printing messages. Some other basic options like modifying message background, text and link colors are also…

Header Scroll Extension – Adds a scrollbar to the extended all header view so that it doesn’t take all the space when viewing all headers. This is a workaround for bug #223132…

Headers Toggle – Gives Thunderbird a keyboard shortcut (H) to change how headers are displayed.

Display mailing list header – This extension implements RFC 2369 for Thunderbird: Special mailing list header fields in the mail are parsed, and the links are displayed in the extended header view. You can click them to simply go to the archive, request help or unsubscribe…

Auto Zip Attachments for Thunderbird – Auto Zip Attachments allows you to easily compress (zip) attachments. A new button named “AutoZip” is added to the compose toolbar.
Upon pressing the button all the attachments would be compressed into a single file. Then the attachments are replaced with the zipped file.

Search for Sender – Adds two items to the threadpane context menu, ‘Search for this sender’ and ‘Search for this subject’. This basically takes the sender or subject of the selected message, copies it to the QuickSearch window and starts the search.

Contacts Sidebar – Displays the address books in a sidebar in Thunderbirds 3-pane-window and can be toggled with the F4 key or a toolbar button.

MinimizeToTray / Minimize To Tray Enhancer – Minimizes Mozilla windows into the system tray. Also includes a right clickable tray icon menu to further load only the windows you want visible…

And some note worthy add-ons that I would not use but I know other people would enjoy.

Bug Clean up for QuickPwn

Not too long after releasing and updated PwnageTool and Quickpwn, the iphone-dev.org team has released an update to QuickPwn.
We’ve had some issues with iPod touch devices and the latest version of PwnageTool for the Mac, in certain conditions incorrect permissions will be used and the keychain doesn’t save passwords. So hold on and wait for the next release, we’ll push out the updated version via Sparkle as soon as it is tested (it is being tested right now).

MySQL, Thread Caching, Linux and a busy site!

Heres an article that helped me with an issue over at a friends site http://www.ftatalk.com Their site was exploding and they need to tune out the current server as much as possible. One thing that I noticed was that MySQL wasn't tuned properly. So After making some changes and finding out that there was no thread caching, I searched the web and found this article.
Wow, it's been a busy week. I was totally swamped for several days dealing with the remember.yahoo.com MySQL servers and related stuff. And then I used a day or two to recover (sleep, shower, etc). Anyway, I made some interesting discoveries along the way. The most surprising one had to do with thread caching on Linux when you have a busy MySQL server--busy in a particular way, mind you.

My first Drupal Install.

This crazy thing you're looking at is Drupal. I will be logging all my changes to this site as I make it look good and functional. I plan on turning this domain name into a storage of Tech Articles + HowTo's. We will see how this goes as I try and make it work, and look good at the same time.
