Greasemonkey auto-update notification

One of the biggest advantages of an extension over a GreaseMonkey script is the possibility of automatic update notification for the user. For my Greasemonkey statistics detector I’ve been looking in to a way to provide automatic update notification, without having to “phone home” on each use of the script. It’s not finished yet, but…

Technorati Greasemonkey script removed

In response to my previous post about unlimited API queries, I was urged by David Sifry, CEO of Technorati, to contact the Technorati developers and work out a way to get my script working through the API. I then contacted the developer team and got a great fast response from Ian Kallen, and we’ve been…

FeedBurner API fun

I’ve had some fun with the FeedBurner API in the past days, creating a graphic simulation from a blog’s feed-readers history over the past year. It’s rather elegant, I think, as it creates graphics which you can easily insert into your pages or posts, and will automatically update each time they’re loaded. An example: Want…

Favicons and your online brand

One of the nicer things to have changed with the release of IE7, which is now in automatic updates, is the way it handles favicons. In the IE6 past it would show them in the location bar only when you had the site bookmarked. Now it always shows them, and in the tab bar as…

More sortable table fun!

I’ve been improving the sortable table javascript a lot in the past days, loads of bugs have been fixed, and I’ve set up a small email newsletter to those interested, if you’d like to be included in that, here are signup instructions. Let me know what you think about this script and how I could…

Update to sortable table script

Ok, i’ve fixed one hell of a bug in the table sorting script which must have been in there for at least 2 months, screwing up sorting incredibly, sorry for that. I added in a new feature as well, you can now have dates formatted as 01-Jan-1970, and it will sort these right as well.…

W3C Validator API

The W3C announced the release of an API for the HTML validator or rather, that’s what they call it. In fact, it’s nothing more than an output filter on their normal validator output, which gives SOAP 1.2 conforming output. It requires a HTTP request though, which makes it a rather funny “API” to deal with.

PHP5 and NUSOAP

So last weekend I installed PHP5 on my server, to finally be able to do some new stuff, and this, it seemed, created some trouble with my SEO scripts that used NUSOAP. What is the problem? Well it’s easy: PHP5 has a soapclient built in, and this causes trouble :).

Does Internet Explorer 7 like your website?

The IE blog recently announced that Internet Explorer 7 will be available for users in a few weeks time, delivering it to user via automatic update a few weeks later. This gives you a few weeks to make sure your sites are rendered correctly in the browser that a major part of your users will…
