DNA Lounge: Wherein you vote for us in "Best of the Bay"

Voting. Again? Really? Yeah, really. Wouldn't it be convenient if all the local rags would do their polls at the same time? Anyway, voting is now open in the SF Bay Guardian's Best of the Bay readers poll, so please go vote for DNA Lounge and DNA Lounge-related people and events. May I particularly direct your attention toward "Best Bar", "Best Bar Staff", "Best Dance Club", "Best Rock Club", "Best Drag Show", and "Best Burlesque Act".

<form autocomplete="yes, dammit">, redux

Many web sites prevent your browser from saving your password for you by putting "autocomplete=no" in their login forms. For years, I've been "fixing" Safari to ignore this by sedding the binary of the Webkit library so that it no longer recognises the word "autocomplete", causing forms to work properly and obey my password-saving preferences.

The bad news: Safari 5 broke that. You have to hack the Safari binary instead of the Webkit library, and that breaks code signing.

The good news: Jeff Johnson has written a Safari extension that fixes this. Download this, select "Develop / Enable Extensions", and drag that file into the new "Extensions" pane in Preferences.

Warning Label on Constitution

Wilder Publications warns readers of its reprints of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, Common Sense, the Articles of Confederation, and the Federalist Papers, among others, that "This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work."
