Remove all cookies in SeaMonkey

Occasionally I like to remove a bunch of cookies from a SeaMonkey profile, unfortunately at some point it appears the Great Dumbing Down is spreading even to obscure browsers such as this Netscape descendant, and the "Tools > Cookie Manager > Manage Stored Cookies" dialogue only allows you to delete cookies for individual sites (trying to mark multiple sites no longer works).

Luckily it appears there is a hidden chrome URL which still offers this functionality:


(paste into the address bar).

There's a list of similar useful chrome URLs here:

Opera 90.1

Opera 90.1 I've heard about version number jumps for marketing purposes, but this latest move by browser producer Opera, springing 81 releases, verges on the ridiculous.

Slashdot adopts HTML 4, CSS; Hell freezing over

The former technical news forum Slashdot, currently masquerading as a repository for duplicated posts, has adopted HTML 4.01 and CSS.

The move comes as flying porcine creatures were seen being ejected at speed accompanied by clouds of dry ice from a deep shaft signed "to Purgatory" near Andover, Massachussets, USA.

aipbot -

This bot or website spider has been sniffing around various sites, or rather snorting them down in copious amounts. It looks like this in the webserver logs (Apache):

GET /file.html HTTP/1.0" 200 12345 "-" "aipbot/1.0 (aipbot;;

The site is just a domain registry service's default catchall page with no information about the bot - grounds enough for a complete block of the IP address (currently I don't have the time to experiment whether it will respect any entry in robots.txt.

The only other information available about this bot is from, which indicates the bot has also masqueraded under the name of abot.
