Miranda and AIM

If you have a lot of trouble logging in sometimes. It's probably because the SSL login servers are down.

So connect to

login.oscar.aol.com port 5190

instead of

slogin.oscar.aol.com port 443

S3 and the 5GB limit!

s3cmd as of this point still does not support mutli-part uploads to break the 5GB barrier.

But http://sprightlysoft.com/S3Upload/ does!

Now the problem with that is the Etag that used to be the md5 is NOT the md5 anymore once you start using multi-part uploads. It looks like it, but it's not because it has a dash in it.

So a slight modification of s3cmd

@@ -633,7 +633,10 @@

  else:
  info = s3.bucket_info(uri)
  output(u"%s (bucket):" % uri.uri())

and bam you're back in business with s3Upload and s3cmd

Are you kidding me? Why all the wasted space? It's TERRIBLE...

This would be so much better.
