It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
Most people jokingly complain that this extension doesn't do what you think it does.
it just blocks HTML and images and suchredundant bollocks in the appropriate comments as long as you remain on the page in question
If you want to block flash I highly recommend the flashblock extension for Firefox.
You're missing the point. What I want is to RE-block it AFTER watching. I already employ FlashBlock, I thought such was obvious from what I said in my post. Note the reloading part to, with minimal thinking, have Flashblock block the videos again.Good jobbu.
Forum will go down this weekend at some point. I'm moving everything to a different server because this one has a problem I can't figure out.
Can you re-order the formatting icons above the text field please? The image icon needs to be next to be where the linkify icon is, and the linkify needs to be moved to the far right, next to the mail icon.
You're being a dickhead if you remove the buttons. I've been making websites out of html since 1996, and even I appreciate not having to type out all the formatting. Making something easy to use is not a bad thing, Scott.
In other words, if you are using the buttons, you're doing it wrong.
Just because I'm a lazy ass, doesn't make me wrong. Outside of work I really don't care to think about code all that much. ~_^
The thing is, when HTML5 is for real, I might have to do something about this fake video tag to make room to allow people to use the HTML5 video tag.
It's significantly more work to move your arm over to the mouse, then back again than it is to just keep hands on the keyboard.
I don't understand this. It's significantly more work to move your arm over to the mouse, then back again than it is to just keep hands on the keyboard. If you have to think hard about this simple HTML code, then you don't know it enough. Knowing it is what I am trying to encourage. A person who doesn't know HTML on the web is like an illiterate in a book store.
Um, no, not really. I keep one hand on the mouse and one hand on the keyboard, a la FPS controls. It takes a fraction of a second to move my hand from mouse to home row and start typing.
But how about this for an argument: the buttons are an option. If you don't need to use them, don't. If you want to use them, go ahead. It doesn't hurt anything to have them there.
Also I often read and post to this forum with my iPhone or iPod Touch. Please, please, please don't be a dickhead, and don't force me to do html formatting with a tiny touch screen keyboard.
Learn keyboard shortcuts. Learn to type. Learn HTML.
Even so, still no sympathy for those of you who use the mouse too much.
If it's work to keep them, fair enough, but don't remove them out of some misjudged sense of "teaching people the right way to use their computers."
So: color, video, and picture link, plus the quoting. Those are useful. The rest aren't.
Notice how he didn't say he was actually going to remove them. However, if they break (which they likely will), he won't fix them. People always forget that often simple GUI widgets require substantial work and support to maintain, far more than the value of said widgets in the first place.
