Weblog entry:

Why the web is good.

Later for web standards — this (quicktime, 2.2MB) is why the web was created. Berners-Lee was on to something.

SomaFM is back!

And so’re my once-illicit days of target="_extlink":

function restore() {
  var d = document;
  if (d.getElementById && d.getElementsByTagName) {
    var cont = d.getElementById('content-main');
    if (cont) {
      for (var i = 0; i < cont.getElementsByTagName('a').length; i++) {
        var this_link = cont.getElementsByTagName('a')[i];
        if (!this_link.getAttribute('target') &&
             !this_link.getAttribute('onclick')) {
          this_link.setAttribute('target', '_extlink');

Take that, W3!


Hooray, technical difficulties.

There’s a WordPress issue that’s currently preventing old comments from displaying correctly. Sorry for the inconvenience, but hopefully we’ll be back online soon.
