Amusing Javascript Snippet

3 December 2008

14 Comments

I saw this posted on Jacqui Maher’s blog today and was so amused I had to reblog it. if (!(typeof worldHasEnded == "undefined")) { document.write("YUP."); } else { document.write("NOPE."); } From http://hasthelargehadroncolliderdestroyedtheworldyet.com/. Aside from the very obvious “you don’t need to negate that test condition, just reverse your simple if and else clauses” issue, it’s […]

Moving to WordPress

9 July 2008

0 Comments

I’ve had it. I am moving from Typo to WordPress. Why? Typo is still buggy. I want to spend my blog time blogging, not reading logs/production.log to figure out WTF happened to my site. After submitting many patches to Typo 5.0.3 and receiving not even a “Hey, got the patch, thanks…” I have deduced that […]

Blog shoutouts

27 June 2008

0 Comments

I like to keep up with developer blogs, so I definitely read/watch Railscasts, The Intridea Blog, Hacker News, Paul Graham, Joel Spolsky and the like. However, I get a lot of utility out of following the blogs of lesser known people I know or have worked with. If you haven’t checked them out already, please […]

This week was one of the toughest I’ve had to go through at work. Here’s a completely random set of things that have made me smile in the last 24 hours. Fruity Cheerios. – It’s like eating Froot Loops, but they’re called Cheerios. All of the pleasure with none of the guilt. Yo Gabba Gabba! […]

Fred WIlson makes a great point today about howblog comments can be as important as blog posts themselves. In this post, he says: I want to be able to easily reblog onto my front page any and all great comments in a format that shows that they are comments and a link to the post […]

PeteOnRails Typo Theme

I’ve released the typo theme you see right now via GitHub. I’m probably going to migrate to Mephisto in the next week or so, so this theme will go out of support, but I’ll maintain the repository and honor any pull-requests if you want to patch it.

Better online comments using Disqus?

26 May 2008

0 Comments

I’m considering moving my comment system to disqus. I really like how their service helps keep online conversations easy to follow across multiple sites while making it easy not to lose track of the blog where the conversation began. It also lets users see more about a random commenter they come across on a blog. […]

Blog stuff I hadn’t enabled, but now I have….

Good grief. It’s amazing how fast you get buried in comment and trackback Spam. I had a tough week last week, so I hadn’t posted much or reviewed comments. This weekend, when I had some time to pay attention to my blog, I found that I had hundreds of spam comments and trackbacks. I know. […]

13 May 2008

0 Comments

Ben Hughes has created a simpler github badge for his typo blog that renders a little more smoothly in Typo than Dr. Nic’s badge. I added support for YAGHB to githubsidebar today. If you like the look of YAGHB better, you can grab the latest sidebar from github. In the configuration pane, you should now […]

10 May 2008

0 Comments

I liked Dr Nic’s github badge so much that I wrapped a sidebar plugin around it for Typo users. You can get it from github. Or install it into typo like this: # cd typo/vendor/plugins # git clone git://github.com/peteonrails/githubsidebar.git github_sidebar
