How Does Anyone Work In These Conditions

A little while ago, the espresso machine in our office broke down. This doomsday scenario is, and I say this without the least bit of hyperbole, the most catastrophically dire situation that can exist in this or any other possible universe. If the intertubes felt slow for you the last few weeks, that’s probably why.

After a while, I started asking a colleague, Sean Martell, to ‘shop up some old war propaganda every few days, to express our dismay.

So, here you go.

We Need Coffee To Survive

It Can Happen Here

We Can Do It

Mercifully it is now fixed, and productivity should normalize in a day or two.

Lightweight Notepad In A Bookmark

Filed under: digital,documentation,interfaces,work — mhoye @ 12:26 pm

So, this is a cute trick that’s been making the rounds:

In Firefox, right-click your bookmarks bar and pick “new bookmark”. Call it “Quick Notepad”, and in the Location box, put:

data:text/html,<html contenteditable>

and now when you click on that bookmark, your browser window will basically become Notepad, a very light text editor. File -> Save works great, too.

Perhaps better, if you check the “Load this bookmark in the sidebar” option, that will give you an nice little way of making notes about a tab, though unfortunately this option isn’t easy to save.
