Forgot I could ftp files to/from my old nokia 9310 via the command line on linux with obexftp.
This is how – so I don’t forget again later on…
obexftp -b AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF -c C: -g TODO.txt; #get the file from the phone
vim TODO.txt; #whatever
obexftp -b AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF -c C: -p TODO.txt; #push it back up again.

In the space of just under a month Date_Holidays_Croatia and Date_Holidays_Australia were released – many thanks to the guys who did the actual hard work to be fair as all I did was package them up and release them!
I’ve also been slowly working my way through the bugs of orphaned PEAR packages – as any PEAR QA Team member ought to!
Unlike the Date_Holidays packages, these are PEAR packages that are no longer actively maintained – if you want to take over any of those you should read Till’s blog post on taking over PEAR packages and follow on from there.

So Sébastien (Le Ray) strikes again. I like autocorrect, I know a lot hate it, but I generally like it, but it drives me insane when it does the wrong thing, e.g. you type http:// at the start of a sentence, and it autocorrects to Http://. So now it simply doesn’t autocorrect protocols when you type that :. http://, ftp://, etc. now stays as http://, ftp://

The current font drop down had a few small annoyances in it, it previews the font by rendering the font’s name in that font itself, but assumes that the same point size in any given font will have the same baseline and height as the default UI font, which leads to misplaced entries and cut-off text, e.g.
Additionally the extra preview text is right aligned (also checked in for 3.4). For extra cunning (to be checked in today) when the font is tuned for rendering a specific script e.g. Arabic or Telugu, then some sample glyphs from that script are shown as extra preview text, seeing as its not massively useful to get an Latin script preview of the fontname which the massive likelihood is that its not really intended for use for that script, effectively guaranteed in the case that it doesn’t even have sufficient glyphs in it to render its own name. In most cases the string for each script is hopefully that scripts major language’s translation/equivalent to “Alphabet” or some such.
