This is just plain awesome! I could go on with this all day. Here are some of "my" quotes (from Meta): Now go and spread the hyperlink You could provide your community with Gravatar and Stack Overflow. the <center> cannot receive answers. New users are strongly discouraged from scanning an analog source. For one unit translates to another. I want to ...

Pre-Release Public Distribution Review Don't let this list scare you. Most of the items are minor annoyances or suggestions for improvement. I believe I found just 1 bug. Overall, the app feels polished. It is easy to use. The UI and general flow of the app makes sense. Nice work! I've separated items by view in hopes of some form of organization. ...

Just wanted to give you a heads-up... One of the questions contained <button> in the title, causing the entire rest of the page to be rendered in a button. You might want to run the title through htmlentities() first.

Any chance for this to be packaged as a WordPress plugin/widget?

One margin is enough! The defining characteristic of mobile screens is that they are small; every pixel counts! A design with two margins is wasteful (and also adds extra visual noise).

On the legal stuff, Looking at your screen shots, your application looks good to me. The purpose of the guidance in StackApps is to encourage people to diversify their apps and make them really kick ass on their platform. I know the issue is confusing but we are trying to steer people away from "I'm just gonna clone the website" or "I'm going to write the ...

Using More Than One Site Per Page See Maxim Z's original question here. The StackTack plugin doesn't need to select the entire document to work, you can feed it any selection you like. $('div').stacktack(); The only requirement for an element to become a Tack is to have a valid StackTack ID. This affords you the ability to isolate Tacks to a certain ...

As requested, here are some good ones I got on Stack Overflow from my posts: Turns out that the problem was that hair-pulling just because I was using Doxygen comments in your source code, you can easily generate documentation in Python. In the application. This is where failures and diagnostic information should totally drop that and try jQuery. Python is ...

status-completed As told in the related ubuntu stack exchange question Would be great to port it to use app indicators. Great app :)

When questions get downvoted I want to see a tie-fighter scream in and hit the question with the appropriate number of laser bolts. The question should display the appropriate amount of distress as related to the number of downvotes. When a question is closed it should explode in a blaze of glory. That would get some face time from me!

I updated several aspects of the app in response to user feedback: Error handling is somewhat better (it will now tell you if your token is invalid, instead of a generic "error" alert) Queued API calls are aborted now, which should speed up site changing, among other things. There's now an option to deauthorize the app, should you decide to revoke its ...

Some funny ones from Stack Overflow: a good IDE can then write a Java file that a common cause of segfaults is harder to monitor/troubleshoot Use Java's resource loader to load the image file between processes by passing around the code from the SVN repo. This setup also helps out API consumers, and is a code smell in the Sun/Oracle JRE Sounds like I ...

Addons Stackprinter allows you to print directly from Stack Exchange sites using Greasemonkey script or an handy bookmarklet. Greasemonkey script adds a Printer-Friendly button to the question you are browsing (Firefox and Chrome both supported). Bookmarklet is useful if Greasemonkey is not an option and has the same effect of Printer-Friendly button, ...

Posting On Tumblr I have recently updated the StackTack plugin to allow class-based Stack IDs to be used in situations where IDs can't be added to your html. This makes it possible to post Tacks on Tumblr now because classes are not sanitized from html posts on their service. Customize Your Theme Log into Tumblr and go to your dashboard. On the right, ...

Very good. I've been looking for something simple like this for a while. Thanks. As potential future features; Growl integration would be great An option to temporarily disable notifications (i.e. when you want to get some work done and don't want to get distracted by revisiting your answers etc!) A 'run on startup' option Maybe have the default menubar ...

EDIT: Implemented using Web Sockets (because the caching characteristics of the API does not allow real-time notifications). I created a Chrome extension and Firefox add-on, and created a Stack Apps listing at Real-time desktop notifications for Stack Exchange inbox. In Google Chrome, the popup is closed when performing an action outside it (clicking, ...

Mine: The fix is a programming language: CSS becomes a fully bloated format with stuff I wrote in a recent project because realplayer uses DoPlay() instead of Play(). Instead, I've experimented until I've come up what to fix. At least it's better than hammering F5. You should warn the user before he begins using the system. I'm very happy to confirm the ...

It would be much more convenient if you implemented automatic posting using a blogging API. It looks like most popular blog engines support the new blogger API (Wordpress, Blogger(duh), Drupal, MoveableType, etc...) WordPress Docs Drupal Docs

Version 5 (Finally) updated to API version 1.0 Now using the StackWrap4J library (thanks to @Bill the Lizard and @jjnguy for helping me with the teething problems) StackAuth support (drop-down list of StackExchange sites is pulled from StackAuth dynamically)

bug It doesn't currently seem to recognise Gaming's new election correctly. It doesn't show up as an active election, but the Gaming option in the "Completed Elections" section actually does load the current election so it's sort of working - it makes it hard to find, and also means we can't access the previous election any more (at least, I can't find ...

In my opinion, the icon is too large at 24 x 24. Other Firefox toolbar icons are 16 x 16. I used the following CSS in my userChrome.css file to make it the correct size: .stackalert-button * { width: 24px !important; height: 16px !important; }

My experience with the October and November 2010 data dumps importing to MSSQL. The latest data dump requires that you do a couple of things in order to use this. Rename the folders. The format of the folder needs to be MMYYYY Schema. So, for the Web Apps data dump, I have 2 folders, 112010 WA and 112010 MWA. The database tables will be ...

This example uses C operators, but they are also used for WinNT/2000/XP/Vista/7 Additionally, new ImageIcon("image.png").getImage() can be used to load a C++ header file with functions that it is not. However, the value returned by Distance() will be truncated to an ImageIcon(byte[]) constructor, and compare the number to the minimum and maximum values for ...

Hey Simon. Interesting idea but, in my opinion, given the vast array of topics, for something like this to be engaging you will need to provide a tag selector at the least. Maintaining a local index of tags, updated daily perhaps, to feed a work-alike tag selector as available on SE sites would be my next step.

I hate to rain on the parade, but programmatic writing to the Stack Exchange sites pre-write API isn't supported. While we can't forbid you from trying, you need to be aware that the instant someone uses a similar technique nefariously we're going to come down like a sack of bricks on it. I also know we've seen some more-successful-than-usual bots ...
