With only 3 produced episodes, the first unsuccessful LAW & ORDER spin-off was scrapped due to the fact that, in the end, it was always Hitler that did it. All that remains of The History Channel's first dramatic series is this title screen:
1) the superb Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) sitcom SPACED is finally getting a US DVD release. No word yet on whether music has been changed, but either way this is fantastic news. Quite possibly the greatest nerd sitcom ever will now be available to lesser geeks everywhere. (And by 'lesser' I simply mean unable to acquire/play DVDs from outside of the US easily. Us uber-geeks already own it on DVD due to thoughtful geek girlfriends.)
Details for the horrified are found therein. I don't know what these people are thinking. I suspect that they're looking to cash in on a the huge appeal the original got over the long-tail of cult popularity, without realizing that those fans are going to be offended by their crappy sequel.
I came up with this a few days ago and sprung it upon twitter. Benjamin seemed as excited by the prospect as I, so I figured I'd do what I could to make it a reality. Benjamin makes me happy pretty much every day, so now it's my turn to try and give something back to him.
Without further ado; Benjamin, this one's for you:
Well, this problem has not yet been addressed by the Google team... but it has been addressed by me.
I greased up the monkey and with one fell swoop made Google Reader's interface one gripe cleaner. My new Greasemonkey script copies the title/URL from the top of every item and includes it at the bottom as well.
If, on the other hand, you're mystified by this whole Greasemonkey thing, I'll give a brief explanation. Greasemonkey is a Firefox add-on that lets users create scripts that will affect the content of web pages before they're displayed in the browser. There are thousands of pre-made scripts to be found at userscripts.org, affecting all sorts of popular sites, and you can always badger your favorite nerds into making custom ones. Some of my favorite pre-made scripts are:
1) AutoPagerize, which causes page 2 (then 3 etc) to automatically be inserted at the end of page one for many popular site. Tired of 'next'ing your way through your Google search results or Twitter timeline? This handy script just requires you to scroll and the next bunch magically appear.
2) YousableTubeFix, this does a bunch of handy things to YouTube pages, the most handy of which is defaulting the the "HD" videos, and increasing the size of the player dramatically. YouTube has never been so pleasant.
That ought to be enough to get you started, but with Greasemonkey, pretty much anything you've ever dreamed you could do with a website is possible.
1) muxtape is kind of addicting. I've crafted another muxtape for your listening pleasure. It is nothing like the other one: nyquildotorg.muxtape.com. In addition, I've also used muxtape to share with the world one of my favorite out-of-print albums: nakednaked.muxtape.com.
