[duncan] Manila Clipper

It Works!

Manila Clipper is, in effect, a client-side Manila Express workalike. I’ve kept it simple. Users are encouraged to modify it to suit their taste. For example, I have used <blockquote> </blockquote> to delimit selected text. Check out the if(…) statement for customisation opportunities.

Just drag the following link to the MacIE5 Favorites bar: Manila Clipper

Javascript Clipper

Here is my first try to use Duncan’s Manila Clipper! And it works just fine! I only replaced the < and > parts of the tags to avoid them from being executed.

Duncan Smeed:

Javascript ClipperManila Clipping is my Mac IE5 version of Ken Dow’s ManilaPad influenced, of course, by Brent’s version of Manila Express. Thanks guys!
Just drag the Manila Clipping link to MacIE5’s favourites toolbar and you’re all set to go. With hindsight it’s misnamed since it works completely independently of Manila and can be used to get a clipping of any site for any purpose. Enjoy!”

Thanks, Duncan. Works great!

Uh-oh, time consuming text adventure

Browsing through André‘s favorite weblogs, I happened to see a link to “the excellent Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy text adventure at Foaf: The Lite Side of the Forceâ„¢

I barely arrived at the Heart of Gold, but I’m already stuck. It seems the only way out is a door to a room in which Marvin is, but the door won’t open. From time to time, Marvin comes out, but goes back in without talking to me.


Happy Wedding Anniversary, Craig!

I like Craig’s quote of the day (actually from yesterday):
