It's even worse than it appears..
"If looks could kill it would have been us instead of him." -- Beatles.#
This function is included in every bit of software I write. Never know when you might need a random snarky slogan. I added two today. 1. There's no time like now, and 2. Mirrors lie.#
I have a server that's returning OPML files. It's not the first time I've done this, but now there seem to be enough other people interested in this that it's worth raising this question. What content type should I use. Generally I've been using text/xml. But I see other people using text/opml. Here's a thread. #
One place I could use ChatGPT-like functionality, in debugging CSS. I'd like to put my cursor on an object in Elements view and ask why does this object have a width of 1054.09px. When I look it up in the Computed panel it's greyed out, and for the life of me I can't figure out how to get the debugger to explain this. But there is an answer to this question. #
Is there a Kickstarter for political ads? I'd like to put up a page with yesterday's ad, and let people put up money to run it. The more money we raise the more the ad runs. #
Getting a new case for an old cellphone is a huge cost savings, because you're getting most of the benefits of having a new phone for approx 1/86th of the cost, by my calculations.#
  • Warning if you haven't watched the second season of The Jinx you should not read this, because it's a total spoiler. #
  • When Durst is cross-examined in the trial, the prosecutor asks a series of questions that got him to admit that if he had actually killed his first wife, he would have lied in his testimony. He asked a whole bunch of things but stopped short of asking the question that would have nailed him.#
  • Mr Durst, would you kill someone to avoid being convicted of killing your wife?#
  • From what we know of Durst he would have had a hard time saying no. When he's caught he generally admits he's caught. #
  • They got the conviction anyway. #
  • PS: I don't recommend either season but having watched the first, I was kind of committed to watching the second. He's a truly despicable character. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
