Planet Argon Podcast, Episode 2: The Letter Scotch

Posted by Fri, 30 Oct 2009 12:27:00 GMT

Earlier this week our new podcast was approved and is now available in the Apple iTunes Store. We’re also soliciting topic ideas for future episodes on brainstormr.

We posted Episode 2, The Letter Scotch, yesterday for your enjoyment. In this episode, we covered a handful of web browser tools that we use (and detest) to debug HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. This included Web Inspector, Firebug, DebugBar, and a handful of other tools. We all have slightly different preferences, depending on the tasks that we’re working on and the team had an open dialogue about the pros/cons of each of these tools.

You can learn more about and listen to our podcast at

Thanks in advance for listening!

If you’re using Highrise or Basecamp and miss not having favicons load in your browser, you can install either of the following greasemonkey scripts that I created.

These will just add a little html to the page to load some favicons that I created from their logos. Will look like this:

Dashboard - Highrise

Hopefully 37signals will add favicons themselves in the future, but in the meantime. Here you go!

Ubiquity meets RubyURL

Posted by Wed, 03 Sep 2008 00:41:00 GMT

Alex Malinovich decided to take some time this afternoon to write a Ubiquity command for RubyURL using the new RubyURL API. You can take a look at Alex’s Ubiquity code for RubyURL. He’s taking advantage of the JSON support that I added to RubyURL this weekend and JQuery. Be sure to read Alex’s blog post, which includes a screencast! =)

Also! We added this to RubyURL so that if you have Ubiquity installed, you’ll be presented with the following the next time you visit:

RubyURL ยป Keep it short (and sweet)
