Umair Haque of Bubble Generation knows about Superfuture!

I’m a long time reader of Umair’s blogs, it was quite a surprise to see that he mentioned SuperFuture! Hell yeah! I wonder if he posts his fits!

IE problems

If you view this blog with IE, the layout is messed up, I know this. It looks great in Firefox 2 and 3, Flock, and Safari3. So try one of those. When I get time I will try to fix it. This is weird coz I am using pretty much the standard skittlish theme as-in.

Adium build with working Facebook IM

Like now the code blocks get smaller font-size [...]

Uploaded with plasq‘s Skitch! I’m using it now but it seems to me [...]

So we got a Flip Ultra, when you plug it into the USB port it shows up with an ugly default USB drive icon in the desktop. I wanted to change it to a picture of the Flip Ultra itself. I googled on how to make Mac icons and found this post. It involves using [...]

MySpace / OpenSocial makeRequest examples

I just refactored some of my MySpace code this afternoon, to contact an outside server from an OpenSocial app you have to use the makeRequest call, here’s how my makeRequest wrapper looks like: function makeRequestWrapper(target, callback) { try { var server_base_url = "http://dev-host.yourdomain.com/myspace" var params = { METHOD : ‘GET’, AUTHORIZATION : gadgets.io.AuthorizationType.SIGNED }; gadgets.io.makeRequest(server_base_url [...]
