The Java Hammer
Back in Olden Times, I was a craftsman, with my ever-versatile Java Hammer always by my side. Maybe I want my Java Hammer back.
How to try out Chromium OS under Linux, without a Chromebook
The Chromium team have an automated build bot that generates builds every night; this short guide will explain how to get one of these nightly builds running in QEMU so you can try it out!
Pebble SDK 2.0 App: Metronebble; a Metronome for Pebble
I’ve written a simple metronome app for Pebble (SDK 2.0). Press the select button (middle) to enter “sampling” mode – tap the pebble to set your tempo. Then press select again to get it to pulse at the tempo you’ve set. You can also increase/decrease the tempo with the up/down buttons. Precompiled .pbw: Version 1.0.0 […]
Pebble SDK 2.0 App: Acceleromonitor – graph your wrists’ accelerometer values
Seeing as I just got a Pebble watch, I decided to write a quick app for it, and seeing as Pebble have just released the (brand) new SDK 2.0 beta, I’d use some new features from that. Code is available in case you’re interested: https://github.com/sebmaynard/acceleromonitor And a precompiled .pbw: Version 1.0.2 Updated 2013-11-08 16:47 It […]
HTML source editor for Evernote (web) – a bookmarklet! [Updated 2014-08-12]
Click to view full size I use Evernote for storing basically everything. Reference, notes, bookmarks (with notes about the bookmark), a journal (although this is a recent addition… we’ll see how long it lasts!) and some parts of my GTD workflow. It’s a fantastic tool with clients for Windows, Linux (Everpad, NixNote), Android, Mac, iPhone […]
UserScript: Set the Outlook Web Access (OWA) title to the unread email count
Below is a simple UserScript (install with TamperMonkey or GreaseMonkey) to refresh the light OWA page and set the title of the page (tab) to the number of unread emails. I’ve only tried this in the light OWA mode 2010, but it seems to do the job, and refreshes the page once a minute.
How to import your ReadItLater items into Delicious (python converter)
I like readitlater; but recently I found myself wanting to share some of my tagged items with other people and couldn’t find a way to do it. I used Delicious years ago and that’s always been a much more social app, so fired that up, and looked for way to import items. Unfortunately the export […]
Google Chrome Extension build script
If you build Chrome extensions, you probably understand it’s a bit of a pain in the bum having to move all the files into the right place (especially if you have shared assets elsewhere), keep track of versions of your package, update your update.xml, and packaging it all up into a .crx and a .zip […]
Download Google Music tracks with wget from Chrome
Google Music (or Google Play Music now!) is brilliant. It lets you upload 20,000 tracks to Google’s servers, available to play anywhere with a web browser, and streamable from your phone too. However, sometimes it’s good to be able to listen to your music when you haven’t got an internet connection – the Android Music […]
