Recently, LinkedIn has started adding people based on your email contacts to their “People You May Know” page. Just to be clear, this is people who do not have a LinkedIn account already, so attempting to add them will have LinkedIn send them a mail on your behalf.
You might note that they cleverly have made them look almost identical to how people who actually have accounts on LinkedIn, so it’s very easy to inadvertently send an invite to someone while using this page.
I don’t quite like the thought of that, so I made a userscript that removes the email entries from the listing, showing only people with pre-existing accounts.
The resulting page looks something like this:
So, I have made yet another userscript; this time for the readers of the Something Awful forums. This is not my first time doing so, and I have in fact created a group for Something Awful userscripts on userscripts.org.
This time, it’s a script that highlights posts made by friends. The script automatically reads your buddy list when you visit your user control panel, so you don’t need to do any manual maintenance of your friends list.
I had previously made the same feature for the SALR extension for Chrome, but seeing as I don’t use that anymore, I decided to remake it in stand-alone form.
So you’re a student at the University of Copenhagen, and you’re starting on a new course. Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could add your schedule to your calendar, so that you could keep track of when to be where?
Well, Rasmus Wriedt Larsen has devised a website, KU Calendar Helper, which automatically produces an ICAL feed you can add to your Google Calendar or similar. You can simply input the URL to the course schedule, and it’ll do the boring work for you.
To simplify this process, I created the following userscript:
To use this script, follow these simple steps:
- Go to the SIS-page of the course you want a calendar feed for.
- Click “Vis skema for kurset”
- On the top of the page that comes up, click “Export to calendar”
- Follow the instructions on the page that comes up
Quines are a wonderful thing. A quine is a program, that when run produces its own code as output. Now, in most interpreted languages you can read your own code through means of I/O — I’d consider that cheating: We can do much better than that. We’ll do it without anything but a clever theoretical result. (And maybe a little bit of code to make it work in practice.)
It’s that time of year again; the new students have started at DIKU and start their careers as computer science students with the course DiMS — Discrete Mathematical Structures, taught from the book by the same name.
If you’re a student at the University of Copenhagen, you’ll probably have noticed that we recently switched to new, horrendously hard to remember usernames for logging into punkt.KU (affectionately known as license plates).
In order to better cope with change, I present to you a few tools to help make the transition smoother.
Now, luckily, most simple extensions can be installed directly with no problem in Chrome, but a few of them sadly can’t.
One of the ones that couldn’t was YouTube Title Adder, so I thought I’d go and port it to Chrome.
I’ve been working a bit on a Skype bot lately, and it seems about mature enough by now to be ready for a release.
You can download the bot here.
Were you one of the kids who spent their days messing around with Logo, drawing whatever odd shapes came to mind?
So I urge you, click on any of the examples I linked before — or if you’re extremely lazy, click here:
If you want example code to run, I can suggest checking out the Something Awful thread on papert by the developer himself.
Now, being quite a fan of Firefox, I decided to read through this.
This read will not help you stop fighting with your lover over who’s doing the washing up but there will not be any questions left concerning which is the best web browser in the world. To avoid being accused of subjectivity I will give you some points that NOBODY will be able to argue with because everything in this article will be true and verifiable.
So be it, I thought, I’ll go check out those errors. For these tests, I will be using the latest version of Firefox (3.0.1) and Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.13 to compare. [...]
