Just noticed the download server of Opera’s offline installation packages responds with an error 502. Checking for updates from within the browser is therefore also broken.

Additionally Opera’s add-ons page is down.

What more to say? Enjoy!

I updated the HOSTS file, added compatibility with Android OS and added a simple install script to control the HOSTS file on Windows. I didn’t create an APK since you need root-access on Android to update the file and I think if you’re already root you won’t install this file using an APK. ;) Just push it to /system/etc and you’re good to go. No need to reboot. Changes apply immediately.


I tested the script on Windows Seven x32 only and I appreciate to hear your experiences when running on any x64 version of Windows. Anyway, enjoy!

To block unwanted tags you need to disable the tagging feature temporarily as long as this spam continues.
 
To disable click on “Account” -> “Privacy Settings” -> “Customize settings” -> “Photos and videos you’re tagged in” -> “Edit Settings” and change to “Only Me” via “Custom edit”. Click “Okay” to accept your changes.

Some minutes ago I got a chat message on Facebook from one of my Ville Helpers¹. This is what she wrote:

OMG: This girl killed herself after her FATHER posted this message on her wall: bit.ly/hiht3w

Several years ago (I guess it was somewhere around the late 90s) I composed an acid track which I never released to the public. Today I remixed and published it for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!
