A Countdown Timer For Windows

I wrote a timer countdown program 4-5 years ago for Phillip. I recently remembered it because gHacks posted about a tiny timer program.

My Timer program is self-explanatory. I don’t think I’ve ever used it. I doubt Phillip even used it.

I have to update the email address in its About screen.

Downloads:
Zipped up version of Timer (292k).
Non-zipped up version of Timer; just the executable (581k).

Firefox Addon Development

I have an idea for a Firefox addon that I’m considering developing, despite having a few other projects on the go (eg. specialized ftp client for Steve, website for a client…). In any case, I’m creating this post as a repository of Firefox addon development bookmarks. You’ll be the first to know if I ever get around to developing it.

Update (July 17, 2008): Firefox 3 stole my idea: they added a Most Visited bookmark folder that tracks the sites you frequent. Bastards.

Post Is Clear: A WordPress Plugin

wordpress logoPost Is Clear is a WordPress Plugin I wrote to insert <br clear=”all”/> at the end of posts, to ensure images and objects don’t wrap into successive posts. Phillip and I were manually inserting the code, although I did hack the WordPress code to insert it, but that code is lost whenever I upgrade WordPress.

This will make me millions.

Running Executables From Firefox

OpenDownload dialog exampleFirefox doesn’t support opening Windows executable files (i.e. files with an .exe extension); you have to save it, then manually run it. I missed the ability to execute a program directly from a browser (as Internet Explorer allows).

The OpenDownload add-on fixes that. When you click an executable, the dialog now has a “Run” button, which will cause Firefox to download the program to your system’s TEMP directory, then executes it. Sweet!
