deviantART just upgraded to jQuery 1.3, and we found an undocumented jQuery change that broke some things. The behavior of the :enabled selector changed. Before it selected all enabled form elements, now it selects all enabled and non-hidden form elements. This bit us, because we were using jQuery to assemble some form elements to submit […]
NautilusSVN is a TortoiseSVN clone for the GNOME file browser, Nautilus. I am very happy to have found this. Now, I just need someone to write “NautilusGit”. (Or wait for the NautilusSVN project to do what they say they plan to, and extend it to cover multiple VCSs…)
I really like “smart home” behavior in text editors. That is, I like it when pressing the “home” key first moves the cursor to the start of the indented text on that line, and then to the very beginning of the line on a second press. I go out of my way to enable this […]
I use TextMate for work. It’s a good editor, doesn’t get in my way, and I take advantage of relatively few of its nifty features.

Now that my mouse is auto-detected with all its buttons, the side-button no longer defaults to being a middle-click. I like having the side-button do middle […]
Del.icio.us rebranded to Delicious, along with a new URL. This happened a week or two ago. Incidentally, this new URL broke my delicious widget. I just noticed that a half-hour ago. So it’s fixed.
I’ve been very distracted by a new job since the end of April. Thus, quiet.
New version of my del.icio.us widget. The only real change is that it now allows for multiple instances of the widget. So you can have one showing the ‘food’ tag, and the other showing the ‘yodeling’ tag, say.
