    Hi Ripper,

    I found your website when searched StackExchange and starcraft. By mentioning these 2 keywords you properbly know my regards.

    I am planning to setup a StackExchange site as my weekend project and wonder if I have the pleasure to have a technology dude who’s also interested in Starcraft (original and II) to administrate the site with me?

    Thanks in advance. Cheers,

    Hi Ripper,
    I recently stumbled across an old blog entry of yours regarding selenium server. You mentioned that you have the problem that the selenium server gives you an error:

    “sessionId should not be null; has this session been started yet?. ”

    I have exactly the same problem. Could you fix it after all?

    Thanks for any hint

    Best wishes from Germany!

    It should be out within about two weeks.

    thank you for developing “Whatever Origin”. It works fine. But if I use a URL containing a question mark and parameters the page wouldn’t get found (e.g. “”). What could I do?

    Nice greetings
