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

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.

The script has been tested with Tampermonkey on Chrome, but should work just fine with Greasemonkey on Firefox.

Were you one of the kids who spent their days messing around with Logo, drawing whatever odd shapes came to mind?

You can now relive the past, for Thomas Edward Figg, or tef as he calls himself on Something Awful, has made a JavaScript-based Logo interpreter. Now you can watch the Koch snowflake, the Hilbert curve or whatever else your mind happens to think up unfold itself before your very eyes — without having to leave your browser window!

So I urge you, click on any of the examples I linked before — or if you’re extremely lazy, click here:

papert – logo in your browser

If you want example code to run, I can suggest checking out the Something Awful thread on papert by the developer himself.

Yet another day, yet another userscript for Greasemonkey (for Firefox, if you insist on continuing the chain).

This time, I’ve made a script for the readers of the Something Awful forumgoers.

Bothered by long quotes of posts you’ve already read taking up a lot of space in threads? Well, then this userscript is for you!
What it does is simply to add the ability to fold and unfold quotes by clicking the “Sebbe posted:” header — automatically folding them as a default.
Edit: This has been changed, now it doesn’t fold as a default, but it is toggleable in the menu.

If this sounds like something for you, then let’s do it like I did in my last post:
