New Google Image Search Sucks

If you want to permanently go back to the original format open up the file “google-images.xml” located in “C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\profileid.default\searchplugins” replace ‘username’ and ‘profileid’ with their appropriate names.

Find this line:

<os:Url type="text/html" method="GET" template="http://images.google.com/images?q={searchTerms}&amp;hl=en&amp;sourceid=mozilla-search&amp;num=20&amp;start=0&amp;start=0">

Append this to it &amp;sout=1 so it becomes:

<os:Url type="text/html" method="GET" template="http://images.google.com/images?q={searchTerms}&amp;hl=en&amp;sourceid=mozilla-search&amp;num=20&amp;start=0&amp;start=0&amp;sout=1">

Restart Firefox, done.

Date stamp + age in photos

Here's a perl script for adding a date stamp into photographs but with a little difference. This one also adds an age field as well. Useful to tell how old your baby in the photo without having to work it out yourself.


First version of the script is here.
