openSUSE Build Service

Search the openSUSE build service at the link below.
If you can not find the software (or build) you're looking for in Yast in your openSUSE, have a look at the Build Service. Search for the software and it will (most probably) find the package you need.
I was just looking for the newer version of Pidgin than is available in the default repositories and found the latest (2.6.2) in another repository.

Selenium IDE for Firefox

Selenium IDE is an integrated development environment for
Selenium tests. It is implemented as a Firefox extension, and allows
you to record, edit, and debug tests. Selenium IDE includes the entire
Selenium Core, allowing you to easily and quickly record and play back
tests in the actual environment that they will run.

Selenium IDE is not only recording tool: it is a complete IDE.
You can choose to use its recording capability, or you may edit your
scripts by hand. With autocomplete support and the ability to move
commands around quickly, Selenium IDE is the ideal environment for
creating Selenium tests no matter what style of tests you prefer.

"Search failed to initialize" in Vista

I have started getting the message "Search failed to initialize" when I use my Vista Windows Search in the Start menu.
First time the issue was solved by rebuilding the search index and running the Windows Search service again to reindex all the locations. But, soon afterwards the search stopped again. Maybe it was because my Vista just hangs for no apparent reason I can think of, forcing me to turn off the computer, which probably just makes things worse.
Second time, running "sfc /scannow" in the command prompt fixed the issue. After the verification the message stated that "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations." Nonetheless, the search started working again. The windows search service remain stopped, meaning it just won't index the watched folders and locations but it will search the Start Menu, which is all I need at the moment.

The page below is a part of discussion on how to get Linux (Android) running on HTC Magician (Qtek S100) but it also contains a few links on how to get Windows Mobile 6.1 ROM onto the device. Something to play with over the weekend.
