The only feature the birdapp has that I wish we had here is the 'translate' button.

@vertigo I'm actually starting to make decent progress calling lib65816 from Crystal. I added some code to the lib itself to allow things like MEM_writeMEM() to be implemented on the Crystal side. (Basically made MEM_writeMEM a function pointer that can be set from Crystal).

Trick for newest version of Firefox on Linux: Prevent scrollbars from automatically hiding 

Firefox on Linux recently introduced a "feature" that fades out the scrollbar if you don't move your mouse. If you're like me and don't like invisible scrollbars, you can simply deactivate this "feature".

Go to the address bar and type "about:config" (without the quotes, obviously). Agree to be careful. Search for "widget.gtk.overlay-scrollbars.enabled" and toggle the entry from "true" to "false" by double-clicking it. Just close the about:config tab and you're done. :-)

(Sorry, I had to delete and redraft, since I first got the name of the preference wrong...)

Are there any transgender people living in Portugal here?

@mastonaut Hi! Just trying out Mastronaut.app…. Could you tell me how to view my direct messages?

Does anyone know: Can MorphOS run 68k Amiga programs on a PPC machine?

Won a G4 PowerMac on eBay today. Not quite sure of the specs yet, but it runs and was cheap, so either way, I'm a happy girl. 🙂

@mos_8502 Looks like Calypsi lets you customize memory addresses it puts stuff in, so I think it will work for us.
