I use irssi for IRC and wanted to highlight various regexes in different channels. Unfortunately the help text wasn't very helpful, so here's an example. more

Django has had a setting for allowed hostnames for a while [1], but starting with the 1.5 release it was required [2] to set it. I'm not sure why I only started getting Invalid HTTP_HOST header emails after my upgrade to 1.6, but anyway, they started pouring in. It's a … more
