in reply to Scripting Proxy Settings in IE and Firefox

Or if you really want to get fancy you can set your browser to use proxy autoconfiguration to some local file that you can generate/edit from a script. Proxy autoconfiguration allows you to define a policy for whether to use a proxy or not for specific requests, so for instance you can have a browser use a proxy for everything except http://www.perlmonks.org.

More info on proxy autoconfiguration

Probably overkill and not really helpful for you, but couldn't resist the urge of mentioning this...

    Hello,

    "use a proxy for everything except http://www.perlmonks.org" - Yes, but you could do this with the normal Proxy/No Proxy for settings, too. But you can do something with proxy autoconf. which can't do with the normal settings: You can have a single proxy configuration file which is the same for all hosts in your network, but can tell them to use different proxies, according to their IP adresses.

    Regards,
    Timo

[erix]: that should be "to an already-too-late- project" I think
[ambrus]: oh yes, we have a pretty good example of that when they reorganized the grill place in the restaurant nearby.
[ambrus]: it now has two more people working there, and they're serving slower and more expensive.
[ambrus]: It used to be just a master cook who takes the order and puts the meat and eggs on the open grill plate table, and an assistant who removes them to a plate, adds the side dish, and gives the plate to the people in the queue, plus a cashier.
[ambrus]: Now it has five people instead of three, some sort of call number ticket system where people wait a lot for their food to get ready (it's the same kinds of grilled meat and fish on the same equipment, it won't actually fry slower),
[ambrus]: it's slow as hell, and the food costs significantly more.
[ambrus]: We no longer eat there.
LanX Everybody quotes it, some people read it, and a few people go by it
[ambrus]: LanX: why would I read it? isn't it a book for managers? I don't want to be a manager.
[ambrus]: I don't quote it either.
