We are a community of motherfucking programmers who have been humiliated by software development methodologies for years. We are tired of XP, Scrum, Kanban, Waterfall, Software Craftsmanship (aka XP-Lite) and anything else getting in the way of…Programming, Motherfucker.

Problem
I just noticed that there is a new pop-up widget on my wordpress.com blog at the bottom (see the screenshot). How to get rid of that?

Solution
Install Adblock Plus and add the following filter:

Siphon – Add-on Synchronizer for Firefox

Problem
You have Firefox on several machines and you want to have the same add-ons everywhere. Also, when you re-install a machine, you want to have back your favorite add-ons.

Solution
Siphon will manage and sync all your Firefox Add-ons with your different computers. It will also save your Add-on list if you ever need to reinstall Firefox.

Read about Siphon on Lifehacker.

I just tried Quake Live on Ubuntu. Works fine. I wish Serious Sam were available too in the browser…
