Yet Another Mozilla Build Error

Just to get it findable by google for the next hero who fails building Mozilla.

../coreconf/rules.mk:406: target `c' doesn't match the target pattern
../coreconf/rules.mk:407: warning: overriding commands for target `c'
../coreconf/rules.mk:366: warning: ignoring old commands for target `c'

is probably caused by a wrong make version. You need make 3.80.
thanks gavin

Javascript members constructor

I know this may seem obvious but I forget it everytime. So this is a reminder for myself and others. It takes a while to track this if you don't know it.

function MyClass () {}
MyClass.prototype = {
memberA : new Array();

function MyClass () {
this.memberA = new Array();
MyClass.prototype = {
memberA : null

It's not that the first (red) is bad, it's just probably not what you want. In the red case there is one static memberA shared on all instanses of MyClass. In the green case memberA is just a normal member for each created instance.

New minimeter beta

Minimeter 1.0.6 beta fixes support for Belgian ISPs Telenet (xasse), adds Skynet volume pack support (byblo), adds Skynet French version (Stéphane), and the three main Czech ISPs (thanks to Pavel Franc): Karneval, Chello, and InternetExpres.
I can't test these additions properly so these will be in beta until I hear enough cheers.

Btw: the javascript ISP lib that is supporting this firefox extension is very easily usable in konfabulator, probably google gadgets... reason why a konimeter doesn't exist is because I just don't like those distracting toys. But I'm sure some people do :)

Link to minimeter beta. Post your feedback here.

Geo browsing

While playing with the longitudes and latitudes of the Talk Maps users I noticed that putting them in a KML file creates a fun toy. Google Earth can read this format and displays all online users in a 3D virtual earth together with all other placemarks. Earth has better data and streams images faster that Google Maps.
Try playing with the refresh interval.

Also notice that the links of the users appear as links in Google Earth and they are opened in an internal browser (yuck IE). So this is some kind of browsing by geographical position. Like.. "let's see what the guys from South Africa are thinking today..."

Update: In Google Earth: Add -> Network Link -> Location: "http://www.epigoon.com/maps/kml.php"

Geo status indicator

The maps.epigoon.com service got extended with something especially nice for bloggers.
As you can see on the right of this post you can add a status indicator that not only shows your status but also your physical location. Don't Panic! It is ridiculously easy to add it to your blog. Tell something to the bot and he will give your the html (iframe) code.
Note: The location is linked to an id/number and not your gmail address, so your (email)address is not exposed. Hooray for privacy.

Update: already 2 nice blogs use the service -> etguler and talou
