tinman spent a few years mucking around industry before going back to school for a Masters. Currently not enjoying the weather in North England..

He wrote Perl that looked suspiciously like C code in 1998, while working as an intern, and has been trying to cure that bad habit ever since.

Nice title!

[ #18141 ]

No, not this post, but the Fire{bird|fox} extension, which can be found here. It basically does some DHTML trickery to draw a popout box of the URL. Installed it, tweaked so it's not quite so eager to jump up (just increased the delay time to a couple of seconds), and I'm away. Pure eye candy, I suppose.. but I like it

I just started poking around with SWT today. I've had enough of Swing, honestly and I will still need a flashy GUI for my application.. it seems neat, very wxWindows-ish..

  • So... how do you go about writing (or even just editing) Firefox plugins? I'm totally clueless.

    • Oh, I am no plugin writer weenie myself @:) This one was simple enough for me to handle.

      Nice Title is basically just a stylesheet and an external javascript file. The stylesheet controls the popout window and this plugin adds an "onLoad" automagically to each page you load.

      Inside your chrome directory, you'll find a tidy "nicetitle" installation directory. Navigate down far enough (nicetitle->contents->nicetitle) and you'll find 4 files. The RDF file is the plugin description, the .js and .css files
