Since I’m often using Windows Command Prompt(CMD), I also often need to run it as an administrator. This is mostly due to permission issues some applications I run may have. That’s fairly simple thing to do.
- Type CMD in Windows 10 Cortana(search box in the taskbar)
- Type cmd
- Right click on the Command Prompt(in results)
- Click Run As Adminstrator.
This is fairly easy solution, but since I’m using it often, I needed a way to pin this to the Windows taskbar, and make sure it’s run as Administrator. Also, by default, when running CMD with administrator privileges, default directory path is C:\Windows\System32\, which I also wanted to change to my Projects folder. In order to do this, I needed to hack your way through Windows 10, to make sure I don’t spend much time for such trivial tasks.
In Q4 last year, Mozilla has started working on a Firefox Flicks project. Furthermore, it’s a global video contest to tell the Firefox Story. You can enter at www.firefoxflicks.org. Firefox Flicks is a contest that invites Firefox fans and filmmakers from all over the world to create short videos (or “flicks”). By doing that, you will help tell the Firefox story.
We’ve been working hard on moving localized Firefox builds out of the beta channel straight into final releases, Finally, that effort started paying off. There are several languages we keep in the focus. A few of them made significant progress in that field. Even though for some of them we have only beta localized builds, we still made it.
A few days ago I needed to file 70+ bugs. All for the same thing for each locale we support on www.mozilla.com. I then decided to make use of BZAPI(Bugzilla Web Service API), and have created a tiny PHP script to do the job for me. That’s how bugzilla-c3po was born. It worked pretty well even the first time I tried it on on http://landfill.bugzilla.org, so I could expect only better performance on bugzilla.mozilla.org.
An hour ago, wiki.mozilla.org got a new default template, or in media-wiki lingo – a new skin. I’ve been working on this skin whenever I had some spare time, and it finally payed off. While creating the skin, my guideline for the design was mozilla.org. Also, I did my best to make it as readable as possible, as a lot of us do a lot of wiki reading. This was the birth 0f the current wiki.mozilla.org theme.
