New job

March 22nd, 2006 Comments off

For the three people in the world that don’t know…I’m official. I signed my contract Tuesday stating that I am the new server admin as of Monday (hooray for time traveling pens?)

I guess that’s all I have to say. New computer at work, fresh mail database to corrupt with forwards, all that jazz. As if trying to focus on the last two months of the final semester of school isn’t hard enough, lets start a job on top of it.


Need some advice

While this problem doesn’t get in the way, I find it incredibly annoying. I’m sure I could just create a new profile and start all over again, but that solution to things is getting annoying.

The problem is definitely somewhere in my configuration. In Firefox 1.5 on my linux laptop, when I go to freshmeat everything works fine. With the exception of viewing screenshots on a project page. I can view these fine from my news reader and Mozilla, in Firefox it is a broken image. When I pull the url and view the image, I get the following

400 Bad Request

Your client has issued a malformed or illegal request.

Alright, so obviously it is just my firefox config. I’ve removed any extensions that I would think would be in the way (don’t tell me to remove sessionsaver, everyone knows I rely on that one) with no luck at avoiding the issue. Doing a google search hasn’t come up with much either (who would have thought that using the phrases ‘firefox’, ‘freshmeat’, ‘screenshot’, ‘bad request’ would lead to no answers). The only lead I found was on this unanswered Opera thread.

So, has anyone every had to deal with such an issue? Does anyone have any ideas on how I might be able to see the request that I send out? Using the Web Developer extension, I can see the headers of the response, but that does no good. Any ideas short of creating a new profile?
