Have you ever been watching log output via a web application, and you just want your browser window to jump to the bottom of the document whenever new output shows up? Well, stranger, let me tell you, I certainly have. That's why I wrote a bookmarklet that does just that …Continue reading
Several years ago, I wrote a series of UserScripts for a persistent, browser-based game (PBBG) called Urban Dead. These scripts tidy up the user interface a bit and add some new features to the game that make quality-of-life improvements to the experience (in my opinion).

Drag the bookmarklet below onto your bookmarks bar, and tell your collaborators to do the same. When you're on a page you want …Continue reading
A long-standing and thoroughly-enjoyed hobby of mine is creating and consuming ASCII artwork (though not the kind of watered-down crap you would see in, say, an e-mail signature or a chain letter).
