Played with the auto-proxy config feature of Firefox. Used an old proxy-config-generating perl script and set up a local wpad alias. It took a bit of testing to find out Firefox uses url http://wpad/wpad.dat. This should also work for the automatic proxy config of that browser not updated since 2001. Details from Auto configuration of browsers although I had to add ServerAlias wpad to the apache config.

A lot of stuff in better places in the new house, the new 'office' even starts to look reasonable. It may be me, but this makes the house a lot more usable. Happy new year everybody!
