Journal: How to change Slashdot's (And other sites) color scheme 4

Journal by SoCalChris
Tired of Slashdot's weird colors, and how each section is in a different color scheme? If you're using Mozilla or Firebird, you can change this by modifying your userContent.css file.

The sample I attached changes all of the section colors to black background for titles, with a light grey background for other areas. You can easily customize it based on what you want to see, just change the RGB color values.

Add the following to your userContent.css file. If you're unsure how to do that, check out the instructions, here.

If anyone knows how to replace images (Like the specialized Slash title in the Apple & Games sections), or make the link color change, please post a comment and let me know. This just shows the flexibility of Mozilla, and open source products in general.

Journal: Good SQL manager for Linux? 3

Journal by SoCalChris
Does anyone know of a good SQL manger for Linux? I am looking for something like Enterprise Manager for Windows that will allow me to design/edit tables, stored procedures, and views in MS-SQL 7 & MS SQL 2000 databases. Right now this is the only thing keeping me from being able to switch to Linux exclusively since most of our database servers here are MS SQL and I work with them constantly.

Old programmers never die, they just become managers.
