IE – why oh why do you taunt me so??

I’ve been working on a couple of plugins for the YUI editor to allow insertion of Flash Movies (YouTube and Google Video). It’s all working swimmingly well in Firefox and Safari but in IE – it just would not work. Why? because of IE’s JS engine bastarding implementation of innerHTML and pasteHTML. I know that […]

Yahoo crashed my Firefox

I very rarely check my yahoo mail but today I tried to (several times) and each time it crashed Firefox. I’m not a happy bunny. They must be doing a silly amount of YUI and Ajax calls to crash it. [ real cialis online | viagra soft generic | sildenafil plant | natural viagra alternative […]

Debugging to your clipboard (firefox extension)

I’ve started using Google reader again and came across the truly brilliant Dust Me Selectors extension (good work brothercake). It’s aim is to report on the CSS redundacy on your site. I hooked it into our selenium test suite and set it to run on page load. Selenium closes the browser when done and deletes […]

Developing a Firefox Extension That People Actually Use

I’ll stop venting my anger at faceless corporations now. There’s a nice write up on the tools needed to write good firefox extensions. [ price check 50mg viagra | generic ogden viagra | buy online pharmacy viagra | buy kazazz shopping viagra ]

Ajax header image rotation

Previously on, the header images were populated from a PHP Array which generated a ul with javascript links to change the header image. Not nice as it relied on javascript. After some ajaxian fun, the list is now generated from an XML playlist and the list is fully accessible with click events attached to […]

Extend Your Browser

Tuesday 6th (the day of my presentation) eventually rolled around. Due to a crazy machine rebuild and re-install fest, I only finished writing the presentation at 1:30pm on the day. It went really well, some very good questions at the end. As I mentioned in my previous entry – the description of the presentation was […]

Extend your browser – ITWales

Last year I gave a presentation to the ITWales group on Content Syndication. I have been bullied into giving another presentation next Tuesday. I have entitled it “Extending your browser”. Directly from the flyer – Firefox and the Gecko family of browsers are not simply web browsers, they can be extended to provide custom functionality, […]

Aggreg8 lives

This weekend I have gone on an all out Open Source offensive. I have released a new version of ACR (Automatically Create Rewriterules) with some bug fixes and faster processing of sites. I have released an updated version of PEA (Photoshop Elements Album Export) with improved accessibility and more options in the python script header. […]

Graduate c# devleopers x2 wanted

As part of Karova‘s expansion, we are looking at taking on 2 more graduate developers. If you want to apply, you’ll need at least a 2:1 in a technical degree, knowledge of object oriented programming techniques, XML and XSLT, web standards and CSS. C# would be benifical, as would a good grasp of IIS. If […] Snowdon Mashup

I don’t like the term “mashup” but I wrote a quick “mashup” to show the route I took up Snowdon on sunday (I didn’t go all the way). Try it out. The javascript needs some cleaning but it works for now. Note: I haven’t tested in in IE. To tie this in with a handheld […]
