Testing Mathjax and Syntax Highlighter

There have been a couple of things I've wanted to try out for a while and today's the day. Any respectable geek site is gonna have to be able to easily post content with math and code.

Alternative To Flash on OpenBSD

Good news! There's a good way now to watch flash content with Firefox on OpenBSD. First install the
Flash Video Replacer addon to your Firefox and then install the gecko-mediaplayer package at the command line using

$ pkg_add -v gecko-mediaplayer

and bingo! You can now watch flash. I just tested this out going to youtube and a few other flash sites. Everything worked like a charm.
