Closing Some Tabs

I'm closing out some 2014 tabs, so have a few useful links.

Want to make a game, but don't know how to get started? Sortingh.at is a great step-by-step resource.

Using Google Apps-for-business and group mail is bouncing? Follow these instructions to switch to "proper" groups.

Think you can recognize your developers from their commit messages? git-game turns it into a neat game where you try to figure out whose entire message was just "fuck" the most often.

Want a machine that make tortillas at the press of a button? I DO. flatev is the answer.

Chrome continue to get better and better. Ilya Grigorik explains some of the optimizations going on under the hood in this chapter from an upcoming performance book. If you work on the web, it's a fascinating read.

i want to be the first google result for a single character [via asc]

the new 'like' feature in google reader is nice for feed generators - i'm now pulling the data back out of reader and storing it in my weblog cms, so i can highlight which posts people have 'liked'. i'm only showing it for myself right now, but still pretty awesome

ignoring the background sound (god yes!), what do you think is more complicated than google wave?

15th May, 12:49 pm

some really nice 3D city maps from norway. having that detail and the coverage of google maps would be great

everything was better in the past. you know, apart from the fact it was shit. i want to poke out their stupid elitist eyes

i'm trying out busymac to sync my google calendar to ical so that it gets into mobileme and hence onto my iphone. first few steps seem to have worked - now have to wait for mobileme to sync to the phone to see if it all works. that would be nice [update: it works! at least from gcal to iphone]

looks like google auth is coming real soon

21st November, 10:35 am

this is a pretty interesting google presentation. still watching it, so not sure how much it gives away.

14th November, 11:03 pm

i'm trying out google analytics on iamcal for a few days to see what the dashboard looks like. looks fairly snazzy.

31st October, 11:38 am

the peronalized version of the google homepage is really fucking ugly. got redirected there visiting the frontpage this morning. maybe there's some trial going on.

20th October, 10:33 am

salty pointed me to the library that underlies the flash nyc subway map. looks pretty cool. would be better if you could somehow pass mouse events through to the browser. can't you send data in that direction from flash?

this guide to embedding google maps in your opwn pages is great. well written and containing everything i wanted to know.

26th May, 2:50 pm

this is fucking awesome - a GPS linkup for google maps that follows the map as you move. fuck yeah

28th April, 11:23 am

one of google's datacenters now has this nice mural in it - maybe the new flickr datacenter will have something similar (wall of photos, anyone?) [via mattj]

19th April, 9:33 am

google maps now includes the uk. although the entry url is different, it's the same app. you can scroll left to find america. no satellite photos yet, beyond the whole country. hope they get those online soon.

8th April, 5:20 pm

george found this awesome app, which uses craigslist and google maps to produces an interactive map of apartments for rent. really fucking amazing. web services rule.

4th April, 8:22 pm

google maps was probably the best thing ever done on the internet - but now they've made it twice as good. fuuuuuck

1st April, 9:26 am

gmail goes to infinite storage. but once april 1st is over, they'll be back to 2GB.

26th March, 10:54 am

montage-a-google is a really neat little app for generating a zeitgeist via keywords. but using google? pah!

11th March, 2:56 pm

it didn't take too long - aaron points out the first google maps-based app. firefox only (gah) but still fun. and vancouver-centric.

26th February, 7:41 pm

the googlemini seems pretty damn cool. i want one, if just for the case.

15th February, 11:32 am

aaron points out the investigation i would have done had i had the time - google maps would take about 8-11TB to store north america are pre-rendered GIFs. looks like it probably is all pre-pendered. but that's alot of gifs :)

7th February, 10:42 pm

the newly launched google maps is probably the best dhtml app ever. stunning.

3rd February, 9:39 am

kal points out google for buffy fans.

18th July, 11:41 pm
