Wee!<br><br>One thing about the importer: do you really have to use APIs requiring the account password? I'm not distrusting <i>you</i>, but I find it conceptually wrong to ever either post the password from one service to another (unless the two share a

Tag Passing: The Story So Far - Freshblog

Looking forward to seeing what you are planning to do, Stephen; almost to the point where I feel like a lazy mere spectator. ;-)

Statistics! (I'll bet ;-) Statistics are good.<br><br>This will be a rather good hack, once it starts getting the MIME decoding right; at the moment it adds =20s for space characters near newlines, for instance.

Firefox 1.5 and Greasemonkey - Freshblog

Peculiar timing of the above; <a href="http://www.userscripts.org/" rel="nofollow">0.6.4 is out now</a>. :-)

I don't believe Blogger executes any PHP code in Blogger templates, though; you're pretty much limited to javascript, and to get that to work with an RSS feed, the feed needs to be fetched from the same domain as the blog itself.

Overheard

(Very often white) graduation hats and Valborgsmässoafton coincide in many cities, but there is no "country global" correlation, so to speak. It's more of a bundling of events, where there were already festivities to begin with.

Firefox 1.5 and Greasemonkey - Freshblog

by ecmanaut
Are you running <a href="http://www.mozdev.org/pipermail/greasemonkey/2005-October/006356.html" rel="nofollow">Greasemonkey 0.6.3</a>? Works like a charm for me, though I heard Jasper on the Greasemonkey mailing list reporting occasional trouble with runn

How to make XmlHttpRequest calls to another server in your domain

by ecmanaut
While this approach does seem to at least partially work in current mozillas (I just tested on Mozilla 1.5, windows), it's far from stable.<br><br>Your bridge solution, on named setup, recursively creates new frames for every new call (which has the poten

Am I the only one around who thinks option <b>2</b> is the <i>only</i> good choice of the above? Options 3 onward don't primarily address the speed problem, they put an end to the openness and reusability feature that makes the web such a good place to be

Another thought on the topic of multiple tags: it could be useful somehow supporting both tag unions (| URL separator?) and intersections (+ URL separator?). ∪ and ∩ are good entities for mathematically inclined people, but I'm not sure of how a good

www.panoramio.com :: View topic - Photo ordering principle

by ecmanaut
I'm not sure I fully grasp the entire concept of a mini-region; is it about weighing [one of] {hundreds of pictures in one region} as high as {one single picture in another, same-size region}, when picking which pictures end up in the preview pane?

Panoramio » Blog Archive » User areas of photos

by ecmanaut
I think you might want to add a quick link to toggle the view filter back to "All photos" somewhere very visibly, perhaps in the top set of navigation links, when in "one user's photos only" mode. And perhaps add another one to quickly go to the "my photo

Greg, your ideas are much too good to be hidden buried in the deep web like this, in some un-RSS-tracked comment somewhere, with just barely a permanent URI. (John might happen to update his template to use the Blogger standard comment URI permalinks <b>#

Dear Self,

You can't possibly realize how glad I am I <i>don't</i> see the obvious line hanging somewhere in the air here. And no, please don't spoil the moment; I think I prefer remaining blissfully ignorant. I shall ponder this no more, to stay untainted as best I

Browservulsel: Custom Blogger comments form (4): spam protection

by ecmanaut
Might I suggest some smallish but useful-per-work-involved upgrades to this? (I'm actually mostly interested in the changes applied to your blog, but it would most likely be useful to the wider public adopiting your code too.)<br><br>1: Make the datestamp

Browservulsel: Form data rescue user script

by ecmanaut
It's unfortunate that this won't protect against the event of a browser crash, which is what I typically lose form content from. At least I assume it would not; the Greasemonkey config.xml is only committed to disk at successful closedown of the browser,

Feedback on this would have become a bit unwieldy in a pop-up form at Freshblog; I took the liberty of going for a complete <a href="http://ecmanaut.blogspot.com/2005/11/magic-delicious-json-feeds.html" rel="nofollow">blog post</a> instead.

You definitely should, Greg; you're an excellent designer and technical writer, beside your other skills, and it would help communication a lot. :-)<br><br>I'm trying to sum up this thread in a big blog post, to get some overview on it and much for reason

I prefer shopping for hearts and brains in the deeper text trenches of the net, myself. In that respect, I'm hardly representative for neither males nor Swedes though, I'm told. :-)

Regarding AJAX, I've been pondering a hack that pulls in posts from your own blog into something like a post archive, but it has the drawback on being rather reliant on your post template to work well. (Since you have to load, parse and splice the content

You're very welcome, Greg; I'm much in favour of all of my improvements / tweaks going back into your mainline code, should you want them there.<br><br>I would only add support for picking up tags from "known" referrer tag schemes (scraping relevant bits
