Oh, you put the comments in, and you take the comments out

Guardian on Blogger Pro : Still to come are much-requested features such as built-in commenting – through which readers can leave their comments Well, I was delighted to see that comments were not on the list of “coming soon” features on the Pro page. Not only do I not want to see my friends in […]

100 most voted for novels

Thursday, January 31st, 2002

Jonathon Delacour ran across that fine old argument-starter, the Modern Library 100 best novels list, and noticed The Readers’ list has four books by Ayn Rand and three by L. Ron Hubbard in the top ten! Is this a joke? Am I missing something here? Seems fairly obvious to me: if you want rabid “vote […]

Working with Javascript – Remote Scripting with IFRAME

diveintomark dives into Greymatter

Wednesday, January 30th, 2002

Rats. All I want to do is post about normal stuff, like the other kids. Instead, I find that Mark Pilgrim, living proof that an ability to write code doesn’t preclude an ability to write in English, has moved to, and even more remarkably has switched from Manila to Greymatter. Grist for my slowly-turning […]

Wednesday, January 30th, 2002

I’m so honored. I am the world’s only resource for “”President Bush fainted” while snacking”. That’s it, no more tips, no more FAQs, no more answers in Blogger Discuss, nothing but posts right here until I drive the specter of Shrub with a pretzel jammed in his craw right off the page.

While right-click BlogThis is still a bit of a sore spot for me, a question in the BlogThis Howto forum (for which the questioner owes me $10) made me realize that there is one advantage to hosting the script locally: you can have as many different custom BlogThis context menus as you like.

Room for everyone

Monday, January 28th, 2002

Once again I have to disagree with Ben Sullivan: Zaxer is not competing head-to-head with Movable Knife, HiFi Slicemup, Sliver, and Slash in a zero-sum game. They meet different needs for different people, or even for the same people: I’ve seen zarphs that use Zaxer for some content, and slice other things with Movable Knife […]

Sunday, January 27th, 2002

Since Tom asked, here’s my outstanding post history. I’m sure it would be more impressive if I could include the total from Blogger Discuss as well (how many kb in 300 repetitions of “on the center black bar, left side, just inside the “view web page” link is a link to “enter safe mode” – […]

Pro Buttons

Sunday, January 27th, 2002

In case you missed the code for the Blogger Pro buttons on the “thanks for upgrading” page, here they are: <a href=””><img src=”” width=”88″ height=”31″ border=”0″ alt=”Powered by Blogger Pro&#153;”></a> gets you and <a href=””><img src=”” width=”88″ height=”31″ border=”0″ alt=”Powered by Blogger Pro&#153;”></a> gets you Note: I added in the border=”0″ cause I’m sure Ev.
