My operating system of choice is Ubuntu, though I also dual-boot Windows. By profession, I am a software developer and I work with C++, Python, and (more recently) Go. I enjoy tinkering with different things like motion tracking in Blender, creating an Android app for time-lapse photography, or writing Linux kernel modules.

- REST Easy - Firefox add-on for analyzing HTTP responses

comment StackApplet — Bringing Stack Exchange Notifications to Your Desktop [Large scale rewrite in progress]
@AshwiniChaudhary: that's strange. Version 1.5.2 doesn't use the URLs in your first screenshot. Where did you install it from?

@AshwiniChaudhary: you must be using version 1.5.1, which uses a version of the API that no longer exists. You need to upgrade to version 1.5.2. You can find DEB packages here.

Doesn't the Stack Tack plugin still work?

The error you're receiving is caused by exceeding the daily request quota. If you are not using an API key, I would suggest registering for one since it greatly increases the daily limit. If you are using a key, then you will need to contact Stack Exchange to request an increased limit on your key.

@Novice: it wouldn't work anyway, unfortunately. Version 1.0 of the API was shut down a few months ago.

comment Stack Alert [Google Chrome Extension] - Keep tabs on your inbox without needing to have a Stack Exchange site open.
I'm afraid the response probably isn't the one you're looking for, but I'll give you an honest answer. Stack Alert hasn't been touched in a long time and the source code doesn't follow best practices by any means. (And it has a few bugs.) I'm currently looking for a new maintainer since it is becoming a maintenance burden for me.

comment Is it really worth to (implicitly) discourage documentation of API/library usage nowadays already?
As the recent edit concludes, the wiki unfortunately encountered a wave of spam users and edits. And it was hopelessly out of date. So it was discontinued.

comment Application icon on authorization page isn't loading
@Brock: weird. I tried both Firefox and Chromium - neither worked. It works in Chrome for Android though. I'll try it again on the desktop later.
