Greasemonkey Firefox extension

I’ve been a little hesitant about installing greasemonkey as I already have too many installed extensions (seven at that time). Even though celebrities (also called A-list bloggers) like Robert Scoble were praising it. What convinced me was this little script that always switches gmail into https mode. So simple, yet so useful. I just could not resist.

// ==UserScript==
// @name GMailSecure
// @namespace http://diveintogreasemonkey.org/download/
// @description force GMail to use secure connection
// @include http://gmail.google.com/*
// ==/UserScript==
window.location.href=window.location.href.replace(/^http:/, 'https:');

And then came the madness of installing more and more user scripts. I was hooked.

120GB/mo hosting with ssh/php/mysql for 9$/year

And it also includes 2.4GB disk space, 120GB monthly bandwidth allotment and a free top-level domain registration (.com, .net, .org or .info), worth $15 alone. When you calculate it, you may actually come to the conclusion, that Dreamhost, because this is the hosting company I am shamelessly advertising, is actually paying you $6 just to host with them! Isn’t it amazing?

Now as for the details… Normal price for this offer is about 90-110$/year (depending on whether you pay up front for one or two years of hosting), which is not that bad deal at all. But it gets much better. If you enter the special promotional code, you will have 100$ subtracted from the total amount you have to pay. And the special code is… 777! You must enter it in the fifth step of the registration process (you sign up for the Crazy Domain Insane hosting plan). $9/year is valid only throughout the first year and you can only pay by credit card. I have no idea how much longer will this promotional code be valid, so if it does not work for you, please let me know.

This offer gave me just enough motivation to start treating blogging more seriously, like using my real name and blog in my own top-level domain. And all of this thanks to Jesse Ruderman! You’re the man!

UPDATE: The 777 promo code is no longer accepted (quoting Dreamhost: Sorry, all the promo code 777s have already been used). You may, however, use another promotional code, which takes 50$ off your bill (depending on the plan you choose. The code is quite simple, you just have to enter XXX.
