Sortable table script updated to v1.5.5

I got an email from Mozilla’s director of product management Sherman Dickman today, that my sortable table script wasn’t sorting numbers above 1 million which have comma’s in them correctly (they do have a lot of Firefox downloads ;) ). The problem was caused by the fact that replace only replaced items once, where they…

WebmasterRadio and iTunes

I absolutely love WebmasterRadio, there’s one thing about them that I hate though… I can never seem to find the iTunes links on there… So here’s the list of my favourite shows, with iTunes subscribe links, for future reference: Domain Masters Good Karma Net Income Daily SearchCast Rush Hour SEO Rockstars That’s a Wrap The…

As usual, Technorati walks ahead of the pack

They “invented” blogsearch, and did a LOT for the webdevelopment and blogging community. Now Technorati, it turns out, is working on the microformats search I asked for only two articles ago (it was there before that, I just didn’t know about it)… Check it out in Technorati’s Kitchen.

Upgraded to WordPress 2.1

I decided to upgrade to WordPress 2.1, and I have to say: it all went very, very smoothly. The only trouble I had was with Subscribe to Comments. Although version 2.1 of this very cool plugin had been released, and it was said to work with WP 2.1, it didn’t. You got an error like…

Sortable table v1.5

Sortable table v1.5

I’ve just updated my sortable table script to version 1.5, in which it is fixed to work in Safari for Mac OS X 10.4 as well, (I didn’t even know that it wasn’t working in there since it always worked in the nightly). I’m now taking new feature requests for this script, so hit me…

FeedBurner history comparison

FeedBurner history comparison

When I was working on my FeedBurner history graph tool, I thought it would be cool to be able to display the growth of a blog relative to some other blog as well, so i came up with the idea of “just” plotting a few other lines next to each other, showing how they performed…
