I'm a web developer that likes cutting edges and doesn't like the backward kind of compatibility.

comment Turn on the link hover statusbar in Google Chrome
Didn't do anything for me =( Restarting Chrome makes it work for a while and then it doesn't anymore. Damnit Google, what are you doing to Chrome!?

comment Where does a magnet/torrent client look for the hash/torrent/file?
Also (sorry!), Wikipedia says "identifies a file", yet a torrent can contain many many files. Is the whole package the file mentioned, or does every actual file have its own magnet hash?

comment Where does a magnet/torrent client look for the hash/torrent/file?
Would it look for trackers or skip the whole tracker approach if an initial tracker wasn't provider? (Would a peer ever share the tracker URL with another peer?) I'm sorry for being annoying and redundant, but I just have to know =)

comment Where does a magnet/torrent client look for the hash/torrent/file?
My bad. I only saw the params part under "Technical description". It's not mentioned there. It says "without a need for DHT support". Wouldn't a client just always use DHT and/or PeX even when a tracker was proved? (If not, why not?)

DHT and PeX would work very well together, wouldn't they? Why first DHT and then PeX? (Does the DHT result contain PeX trackers or something??) The principle is the same, isn't it? Ask from peers in the client's network?

comment Where does a magnet/torrent client look for the hash/torrent/file?
Would the above magnet URI work if I removed the tr params? My uTorrent client would look via DHT and PeX? Would it use (or even find) trackers from other peers (because others did get the full magnet URI, including trackers)?

comment What's the difference between a torrent file and a Magnet link?
Wikipedia mentions a required "availability search" to find peers (and the actual file). Where does the client look? Does a magnet link require a tracker URI or is that up to the client's network?

Web interfaces/tools are the best. No install, no uninstall, nice n sandboxed. Perfect!

comment Enable alt/ctrl + left/right on CentOS command line
My settings are a bit different btw: ctrl left / right: \eOD / \eOC and alt left / right: \e\e[D / \e\e[C. Thank god it's a readable, sensible syntax like this, right!? Linux rocks!

comment Enable alt/ctrl + left/right on CentOS command line
YES YES YES! You are my absolute hero! It's perfect now! My tiny air keyboard now uses right ctrl + arrows and my main/desktop keyboard now uses left alt + arrow keys. Perfect!! Somehow my air keyboard's right alt doesn't trigger anything in read... Probably the keyboard's fault (some special function!?). Awesome! You the man!
