Migrating from VMWare to Sun's Virtual Box

Today I went to start Windows as guest in my Ubuntu install of VMWare and, boom, VMWare has broken itself during one of the prior kernel updates (because it doesn't use DKMS or release patches quickly enough).
There had recently been a good thread on this on the Manchester Linux User Group's mailing list, so I decided to give migrating to something that more sensibly works a go.

What does AIR application install error "Error# 5100" mean ?

Sometimes when installing an AIR application, the installer refuses to proceed with the mysterious 'Error# 5100'.
This doesn't appear to be documented anywhere, but it actually means the temporary file space is full (i.e. /tmp/ on Linux).

Guess the 100meg cap on my tmpfs wasn't enough, eh :-)

Remove 'unverified server' pop up in AIR

The problem:
Every time some AIR applications start, they give a prompt saying ’trying to connect to an unverified server baz.com (on port 443). Do you trust this server ?’.
Clicking ’always’ (out of 'always', 'this session' and 'never') doesn't work, and it always asks the next time anyway.
 
The solution:
Visit https://baz.com in your web browser, and look at the certificate information for the site (on FireFox, click to the left of the address, then press 'more information').

Adobe gives AIR as early Christmas present

Adobe has today released the AIR run time for Linux, bringing full feature parity to the existing Windows and Mac versions and making AIR truly cross platform.

As a Flex developer, I'm far more likely to use AIR to build any desktop components of applications (or take web applications offline entirely) than just about the only real competition, Java.

Cheers Adobe, an excellent present to go into the Christmas break and next year with !
