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.

_MG_6431_STAMPED

First version of the script is here.
