Presenting WikiSearch

In an attempt to penetrate the mysterious insides of Mozilla and its descendants, I've written a simple extension for SeaMonkey and Firefox which lets you highlight some text on a webpage and search for it using the context menu.

Edit: Fixed incompatibility with ContextSearch extension and bumped version number to 0.3.

Mad conviction overturned

According to The Register, the teacher who was convicted (for forty years) for displaying porn to children has been granted a retrial. This trial was completely shambolic (original story) and has been deconstructed in detail here and here. This was a case of people who failed to understand technology combined with a degree of fundamentalism and extreme prudery combining to make a mockery of justice. It just goes to reinforce my view that nobody should be allowed anywhere near a computer without having some sort of basic training first.
