Fixes for WordPress Twitter Updater by Ingoal

I’ve fixed up the WordPress Plugin Twitter Updater by Ingoal and a number of others (Eric Austin Lee, Victoria Chan). Here’s my changed to the plugin.

Jordan Trask (April 17th 2010 – https://geektank.net (v2.09)
– ZZ.gd broke with 403 forbidden error, fixed with setting different user agent.
– Move menu to “Settings”.
– Added option under configuration to choose ZZ.gd or TinyURL. Added 1 function.
– Re-worked the code for url shortening services, change in one place instead of three. Created a function instead.
which makes it easier to add more services if necessary. Bit.ly support in the future?

You can download the new version, I’ve renumbered the version number and hope to have bit.ly setup as well.

I’ve removed the download and placed all relevant information on the Twitter Updater page.

Microsoft changes mind, agrees to fix IE’s URI handler

Microsoft agrees to release a patch to fix some of the security issues but not all in Internet Explorers URI Handler. I don't understand why Microsoft has such a lazy stance on security, I want to use Internet Explorer just as securely as any other browser. One mis-typed url after a fresh install of Windows could cause malicious software to gain entry to me desktop.

Western Digital developing 20,000RPM drives

That's right, this isn't a joke.
The new drive will be very similar to the recently-released VelociRaptor, in that it’ll be a 2.5in drive with a custom 3.5in housing built around it. Details are incredibly light at this stage, given that the product is still in development, and we don’t even have a release timeframe at the moment. However, our sources said that the drive will be ‘silent’ – that’s the last thing I would have expected from a drive with platters spinning at 20,000 RPM. Western Digital is apparently working on silencing the beast by improving the housing technology, which will now not just act as a heatsink, but also as a noise cancelling device. We’d also hope that the drive enclosure has some vibration dampening technology as well, because that’s also likely to be a problem given the high spindle speeds.

Exim4 and PHP and PHP-CGI mail() function using incorrect From: and applying Sender: headers.

If you're using Exim4 and PHP as a module or as a CGI with suexec. You may have noticed some issues with your mail. Specifically you would have noticed that either the "From:" header was using "[email protected]" or "[email protected] name, its also possibly that you had an additional header called "Sender:". There are two things you need to do to fix this. You first need to make sure that your "php.ini" has the following value "sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i". Which is the default, double check this variable as it might be set to something else.
