Disable CSS Styles: Quick Tip

If you have been using the Web Developer Toolbar since at least Firefox version 2 then you probably have learned some of the keyboard shortcuts to activate some of it’s features. My favorite keyboard shortcut was Command + Shift + S. This shortcut disables the CSS on a page so you can take a look at how the HTML is render by the browser.

Web Developer Toolbar and Delicious Add-on

The problem I had is when I upgraded to Firefox 3. More accurately the problem lies with the del.icio.us add-on that was updated for Firefox 3. This add-on has the same keyboard shortcut assigned to opening the delicious bookmarks sidebar. It was really bugging me so here is how you change the keyboard shortcut in the delicious add-on.

Go to Tools → Delicious Options. Select the Keyboard shortcuts tab. Near the bottom of this window You see an option called Bookmarks Sidebar with options to change the shortcut. Change the shortcut to whatever you’d like. I changed mine to Command + Shift + D. On my system it didn’t have any thing already assigned to that keyboard shortcut. Then just press the Restart Now button and your done. quasarkitten.net | twitter.com/quasarkitten

quasarkitten.net/adoption/stubs

Stubs is a one year old female spayed Siamese mix looking for a forever home. Her previous owners moved and left her homeless and she was taken in by us as a foster. Stubs is a very affectionate and people oriented cat who also gets along with other cats and dogs. She is a very confident and a bit feisty, but a complete cuddle bug. Her favorite activity is to cuddle up next to you on the bed or couch. Her favorite toy is the feather toys on a long handle. She is litter box trained, spayed, vaccinated, and keeps herself very well groomed. She does well with other cats, dogs, adults and older children. Cast: Zeke Franco

Yesterday I posted about swfobject, a script that embeds flash files for you in an unobtrusive way. Today I found jQuery Media Plugin. It basically converts a standard link to to the proper embed method. For example it will write embed tags for ie, and object tags for firefox.

Here is how it works:

Let the script know which class you are applying to your media files, for example 'media'. Then create you markup in your html file. <a class="media" href="karaoke.mov">Quicktime movie of me singing staying alive</a>

That's it! The script will turn the anchor in to the proper embed markup.

Here are some of the formats it supports. mp3, aac, wav, real media and other audio formats quicktime movies, real, and even youtube videos. silverligh and even sIFR.

Which is awesome because setting up sIFR can be a pain.

Of coarse this is an overview, check out the link for the actual overview, demos, and details.

Anyone ever played around with swfobject? It seems pretty awesome! Flash is a pain in the ass, but this script makes it pretty seemless. Stupid IE, STUPDIER Embed tags! Sidenote: one of the reasons i like Vimeo is they give you valid mark for embedding videos. Although it's not too hard to make youtube's markup valid.

If you had to pick a partner based on their profession which professions would you choose? It can't be the same profession as your own.

My List (in no order) 1.) Copywriter 2.) Illustrator/Designer 3.) Physicist 4.) Open source loving server-side programmer.

I asked my friend at work (Jane--the copywriter), what profession she would choose...

1.) Someone who works for a humanitarian non-profit. 2.) A Professor 3.) Chef (I like this one as well)

Loving the new promo materials in Starbucks. Everything is pseudo cork board with little stickers (colored dots) holding up notes and photos. Not too fond of the stickers, they are too perfect looking--they are literally perfect circles that are a solid color, they need a wrinkle or fold or something.
