Check out my StackList profile.

I really enjoy working on my apps / libraries. Here are just some of them:

As mentioned above, it would be awesome if you joined StackList and listed your apps / libraries there. Eventually, there will be some awesome tools for bug tracking, etc. Details here.

Here is my Amazon book wish list.

comment Chrome may not allow one-click userscript install now
One of the comments there really sums up the way I feel: "Perhaps it's time to fork Chromium." :P

comment Is there a Stack Exchange API allows research on the body?
@taoder: That is correct - the API does not provide a means of searching within the post body. You could, however, use the data dumps.

comment Stack Mobile - View Stack Exchange Sites on Your Smart Phone or Tablet
@ObsessiveFOSS: Unfortunately the app has become too popular for its own good :P So many people are using it that it exceeds the rate limit for API requests and the API blocks the app for a few hours.

comment The applications listed on a user's apps tab are a little crowded.
@PaulFryer: I've answered your question.

comment Installing user scripts on site?
Although a great idea, I think this has far too much potential for abuse. As for security, yes - UserScripts run with pretty much the same privileges as JavaScript code on the page. However, your suggestion doesn't really go into detail on how these scripts would be approved for embedding on the site.

comment StackApplet — Bringing Stack Exchange Notifications to Your Desktop [1.6 alpha for Windows released using v2.0 of the API!]
As of version 1.6 (currently in Alpha), only inbox items are included in notifications (so that would include answers to your questions, comments directed to you, and anything else you would see in your global inbox).

comment StackApplet — Bringing Stack Exchange Notifications to Your Desktop [1.6 alpha for Windows released using v2.0 of the API!]
@BrianFenton: Sorry about that - for some unknown reason, the permissions on that file were set to 600 instead of 644. I have fixed the permissions now, so you should be able to download the installer.

comment so++ - C++ Library
@BrandonClark: Yes, that is correct. so++ supported a limited set of requests against v1.0 of the API and as such should still work.

@jamesdlin: Ah, I get it. Well, depending on how things go, that may end up being a possibility.

comment How to get network profile username?
Don't forget that the network profile isn't actually separate from the other accounts - it is simply synched with one of the other accounts. So all the API would need to do is indicate which account was currently chosen.

comment StackImage 2 - Create Your Own Unique Custom Flair!
@jamesdlin: I am currently in the process of unifying the accounts on all of my web applications, so at least there will only be a single name / password to remember. The reason I need authentication is because the tool needs to store a lot of information for each flair instance - more than I could fit in the query string of a URL. Therefore, to facilitate the storage and to eventually (though not yet implemented) allow for editing instances, authentication is required.

comment Detecting StackExchanges with non-standard “plugins” (e.g. MathJax)
Wow... I didn't realize so many sites had deployed MathJax.
