Package: skype
Status: install ok installed
Priority: extra
Section: non-free/net
Installed-Size: 25096

Depends: lib32stdc++6 (>= 4.1.1-21), lib32asound2 (>> 1.0.14), ia32-libs (>= 1.6), libc6-i386 (>= 2.7-1), lib32gcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1-21+ia32.libs.1.19)

innerHTML problem with internet explorer (supposed)

I lost some time to debug this


The problem is on Internet Explorer (all version) that refuse to load data in #target, using $.get and innerHTML(data) do not help. The problem is with no well formed html! Internet Explorer refuse to load in dom a malformed html.


will load interested html in new popup (letit open!) and wrapping with <xml></xml> document should be well formed: open with conglomerate or checking with other tool make life easy.

Email from your host you are banned (mail php security matter)

I found this in a server:

$header = "From: <".$_REQUEST['email'].">\n";

$_REQUEST[’email’] came from a form input …

Here $_REQUEST[’email’] should be, at least, stripped by all \n no matter on how you trust to js code..

$from = $_REQUEST['email'];
$from = str_replace("\n","",$from);
$header = "From: <$from>\n";

Option List jQuery plugin

A plugin for display list of item to insert.

List item are stored in input hidden comma separed, the call is simple

Some bug to fix

options are

  • target: target div to update with options
  • input: input to update with values
  • items: items list as key:value
  • optional: default to $(“<input>”).attr(“type”,”text”) … you can setup autocomplete
  • preset: an array of key preset (must be in items)
	      input: '#iptvalues',
	      items: {'0':'prova','1':'test','2':'due','3':'tre'},
	      preset: [0]


.optionlist_itemlist {
border:1px solid #000;
  background: #999;

also #optionlist_overlay is the overlay at z-index:3000

grep over ssh in emacs

M-x grep command is very useful in a number of situation, because, for example, it give you direct access to all matched file …

But there is not so intuitive how to use grep when opening file via ssh, this is the trick:

First generate a key pair and upload public part to the remote server:
(suppose remote host/user is B/b)

ssh-keygen -t rsa
ssh b@B mkdir -p .ssh
cat ~/.ssh/ | ssh b@B 'cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys'

be sure to use ssh-agent in order to use ssh-add

So you will not be asked for a password every time you ssh

Every time you want to grep in emacs:

M-x grep
Run grep (like this): ssh -t b@B 'grep -nH -e include path_to_files/*'

where path_to_file is the path relative to home in remote host

NOTE: do grep command when visiting remote home in emacs (otherwise it will not find matched files)

that’s all

move multiple option in select with jQuery

I look for this everywhere: how to move multiple option inside a select

  var el = $('#selectedfield').children('[@selected]:first').prev();


function downfield() {
  var el = $('#selectedfield').children('[@selected]:last').next();
	el = $(el).next();
