Whoo! Remember the graph I showed you guys a while back? [livejournal.com profile] foxfirefey just released the source ^____^

Note: I think you need to be at least fairly technical and have Python on your system to use it.

I just found an alternative to Greasemonkey, called Chickenfoot. I think... it may abstract away some of the more technical language, and it is less sandboxed than Greasemonkey. So basically, more like an extension than a script. If that is true, I wonder how they stop malicious websites or scripts from gaining access? I'm curious; must set aside time (I don't actually have) to play.

Went out with friends to Shangri-La Plaza today, and watched National Treasure. It was pretty good. What I liked most about it is... (cut for spoiler) )

I liked it; it was interesting.

Speaking of things that I like because they're interesting, check out this gorgeous take on the Cinderella story (not a fairy tale; not for kids. Warning, contains sex. I would babble on about it, but I don't want to spoil it for you. Also, words fail me). I've linked to part ten, as it links back to parts one through nine, so do take care not to scroll down that page until you've read the first parts. Originally found via the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] keilexandra.

I was late to the movie because I accidentally left my wallet at the office last night and had to drop by there first to search for it. Found it in my jacket pocket, untouched. After the movie, I handed out boxes of chocolate truffles (my pasalubong from Hong Kong!). Some milk, some dark, some white, some hazelnut. I hope you guys enjoy them ^_^

Discovered an easter egg for the mall -- a set of out of the way restrooms. No lines! Woohoo!

I felt ravenous after the movie, so I suggested dinner (Pho Hoa; Vietnamese noodle place. Never eaten there before. Flank+brisket+tendon noodle soup is quite good.) Kinarir ni [livejournal.com profile] habeo ang hoisin sauce ;) Kinarir ko naman ang bean sprouts at basil. Wanted to have some mango crepe, which apparently was infused with pandan, but I was too full after the noodles.

Dinner conversation revolved around various languages, including English in the Philippines, PHP, Java, Lisp, Erlang. A few quick dips into load balancing (which sadly I know little about), and the rules governing domain names and valid email addresses rounded out the small talk nicely.

[livejournal.com profile] jan247 had to leave early! Sad! But okay, we understand. Some things are more important than friends ;p And then it was just me, [livejournal.com profile] habeo and [livejournal.com profile] iruka11. Headed to PowerBooks, right next door to the restaurant. There was a sale! Everything was at least 20% off, so I bought four books: silly book about being a Filipino (You know you're a Filipino if...), The King of Attolia and The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner (I've read The Thief, set in the same universe, and liked it, so this seemed a good gamble), and then bought Dragonhaven by Robin McKinley.

I just remembered that someone may have recommended that last book to me last year (before it was published), though that wasn't in my mind when I picked it up from the shelf. Hmm. Aha, found it.

I love the smell of books, the feeling of covers under my fingertips (matte, glossy, smooth, rough, everything), the fonts and colors as they sit there on the shelf. I have a hard time keeping my fingers and my eyes away from them. I tend to get dizzy when walking past shelves of books, especially long ones, because I'll be trying to walk forward to get to the next set while my eyes (and occasionally fingers) are still trying to read everything behind me.

I'm still revelling in the feeling of having money in my pocket. This is the first major thing I've bought for myself since I started earning*. I mean I've bought books before, but I didn't have to pay for them or anything.... It feels good to own my books completely utterly entirely.

*lunch and treating my family to dinner do not count!

Had on a blouse that was cut lower than I usually wear. The deep V has an amazing slimming effect, but it meant that I had to take care that I didn't accidentally flash anyone when I crouched down to get at the books on the lower shelves. I also had on my sister's sandals so I could walk tall (the things I will do for more height ;-)), and I keep forgetting how much I like the crisp click-clacking of hard heels against tiles. So nice. Tried not to be too obvious that I was enjoying walking so much, but so nice.

Guys (a.k.a [livejournal.com profile] habeo, [livejournal.com profile] iruka11, and others), I think you'll find this blog for learning Japanese interesting. It's described as a site for intermediate/advanced readers, which intimidated me at first, but I've looked at the entries and they're within our abilities (for the most part *G*). More importantly, it's interesting!

There are some tidbits of information, some riddles... I'm only halfway through the existing entries, but I'm having fun. :)

Foot mouse

It's a mouse you manipulate using your feet. Because there are better things you could be doing with your hands, after all ;-)

I wonder what a "foot trackball" would be like. Or a "foot trackpad".

That's one hot car. (The way the flames flare up looks almost unreal, especially in the second picture.)

While I'm here, might as well link to YouTube videos of prisoner performances in Cebu. The Algorithm March video has been making the rounds on my friends list, but I don't think anyone else has linked to the others :P

Saw it recced here, and I'm excited! It's coming out in September, by which time I'll be in China. I hope I'll still be able to find it there (or at least manage to find it when I get home around Christmas :))

In case anyone wants to comment on the script but doesn't feel comfortable doing so on us.o, here is a good place. I'm assuming that anyone who wants to use that script has an LJ account, since the script itself is made to work with LJ!

Because it seems fitting, here's a script (not written by me!) which restores the appearance and formatting of the old update.bml page.

Also, I've finally posted the script to add a tagslist to update.bml. There's an easter egg in there of a sorts -- didn't bother to remove my uglification code, but it can't be activated unless you know the exact steps.

Ah, the stupid thing is that my script is not compatible with the first one, so unless someone (else) is willing to figure out how to fix that, you'll have to choose one or the other.

The information below is outdated; most updated info is in the script itself and probably also in the extended description over at us.o.
Rough docu for my script. This text is also found within the script itself )
