OpenWrt + dnsmasq

Note to self: the OpenWrt wiki, particularly the dnsmasq page, is a very useful resource for understanding why my XMPP server won't talk to the GMail or LiveJournal XMPP servers. (Hint: filterwin2k is a very bad configuration option for XMPP servers. Stupid default option.)

This'll be interesting...

I switched my DNS host from to, because ZoneEdit doesn't support DNS SRV records. They're needed for XMPP server-to-server federation support. My XMPP address is <${my_second_level_domain} at ${my_second_level_domain} dot com>. Note that this is different from my email address.

If I haven't seen it, It's new to me!

I learned something new today: it seems that <button>s have a type attribute, and default to type="submit". Obviously, this doesn't apply to IE, which defaults to type="button". Makes my life just a bit more annoying. On the other hand, I don't have to use <input type="[submit|reset]"/>, which apparently makes it a bit easier to style.
