Wrong, Wrong, Wrong!
 by Fëanor

This web application I have to use at work logs me out if I don't use it for a while, but to make things more fun, it does it kind of subtly, in the background. So I'll try to go and use it thinking I'm still logged in, and it'll break. But it doesn't just break - it pops up three different error dialogs in a row, just in case I might have not understood that it's broken.

This reminds me of Office Space:

Peter Gibbons: And here's something else, Bob: I have eight different bosses right now.
Bob Slydell: I beg your pardon?
Peter Gibbons: Eight bosses.
Bob Slydell: Eight?
Peter Gibbons: Eight, Bob. So that means that when I make a mistake, I have eight different people coming by to tell me about it.

Online Toy for Your Kids
 by Fëanor

Hey, remember that thing I made, Buttons? It makes a random sound and displays a random image every time you press a key or click a button. I finished an update of it today. Have at it and let me know what you think. Thanks!

Likable
 by Fëanor

Since I've got Twitter buttons all over, I thought it only fair I stick Facebook buttons all over, too. So I've added the Facebook "Like" button to all individual blog entries, as well as to They're Cops. I've also updated the blog's main page so you can Like or Tweet individual entries directly from there, or Like or Tweet the main page itself. And besides all that, I also made a handful of other little tweaks and improvements I won't bother describing in detail. Huzzah!

Better Tweeting of Cops Now Available
 by Fëanor

Mike V. was good enough to do extensive testing of the Twitter feature I added to my random cop movie premise generator, and pointed out some flaws. Well, I've finally gotten around to addressing them! All tweets generated by the app will now be automatically cut down to 140 characters or fewer (which only makes sense), and, even better, the link provided in the tweet will now take you to a version of the "They're Cops" page with the field at the bottom pre-populated with the particular "They're Cops" phrase that you found so amusing. So no one will have to guess at what it was that you found so funny. Yay!

Interestingly enough (well, interesting if you are technically inclined at all - non-developer nerds may want to step away now), in order to make this work I actually had to change the URLs on my website. I'd been using a vertical pipe in various URLs as a divider, but it turns out the Twitter API really hates vertical pipes. It was accepting the encoded version of the character the first time through, but then for some reason it was double-encoding it the next time through and posting an unusable URL. I probably could have kept banging my head against it until I got it to work, but instead I decided to take the easier way out and just replaced vertical pipes with commas in my URLs. The old vertical pipe-using URLs will redirect to the new comma-using URLs, in what I hope is a seamless change.
