My year in 12 copy-and-paste comments

While I’m almost never a sucker for a good meme, I was so amazed to see that I actually posted in all twelve months this year that I started looking at what I might pick, if I were so inclined. Then I quickly ran up against my inability to shut up: even when there was nothing but Shorts, I still had trouble finding sentences short enough to copy and paste.

August:

September:

October:

November
Oh well, if you’re gonna be evil like that
December:
I’ll bring the beer, you bring the road and the truck.

In other words, running a Greasemonkey script on a site can expose the contents of every file on your local hard drive.

The magic personal command line for the web

I have big plans for this little script.

Or do you just use your browser to browse? That’s so 20th century.

”Greasemonkey Hacks” is, as they say, hot off the presses.

That sounds like a job for ”Dive Into Microformats”…
