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
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.
Now, a few hours later, I can present you with a new, and slightly improved, YouTube Title Adder for Chrome.
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:
It’s a bit annoying having to go to PPT just for the quicklinks, isn’t it?
And thus it came to be that I decided to make a quick userscript to insert the quicklinks — painstakingly ripped from PPT by my brother while I was coding, I might add! — into the left sidebar on any Neopets page!
So, without further ado, I bring to you:
