Coding to XColX's tracks is one of the best ways spend a couple of hours in the early morning.  I highly recommend picking up Live At Stokesly School, a really great 20 minute gig he did, Drifting Apart, a beautifully melodical and rhythmic piece, and his Fix You remix, a really great redoing of the new Coldplay track.  They're all trance/melodic trance/house-ish tracks, quite bouncy and energetic and a lot of fun to listen to.

In other news, I'm chugging away at the Survivor: MZX page, I like the interface I'm designing a lot.  I'm also having fun with DHTML, which nobody but [livejournal.com profile] rossman231 will ever see ^_^  All in all, the page should be ready with time to spare before the competition, and hopefully prove worth the effort I'm expending on it.

Oh yeah, there was a greasemonkeyed IRC discussion, which I logged and [livejournal.com profile] atrustheotaku kindly HTML-ified and mirrored. Some good ideas there, I like the direction that the greasemonkey community is moving in, with casual editing/fixing of other people's scripts combined with a meaningful trust system. The end result for the user, ideally, will allow access to any version of a script, with notices of how trustworthy it is (has/hasn't been approved by admin, has been reviewed by "elite" people, etc). Sounds good to me!

In case you don't know, there's a greasemonkey 0.5 beta out finally, and it's wonderful. Pick it up, go to greasemonkeyed.com (soon to be userscripts.org) and begin fixing the web, one page at a time.

There's a new beta of Greasemonkey 4.1 out on the mailing list, it has almost perfect backwards compatibility right now, and it's fixed every one of the security issues brought up.  It's also much harder to detect and stop, and the only security "issue" now is that a website can get the source of your script.  What that translates to is don't leave passwords sitting in your scripts!

EDIT: A message on the ml just after posting this notes that the 0.4.1 attachment is not a beta, but a cutting-edge development version, akin to a nightly Firefox (Deer Park?) build. Still, get it, report bugs. Enhance the web.

There goes my great discovery of greasemonkeyed.  This message makes it clear that GreaseMonkey is a huge security risk as of this moment (as does [livejournal.com profile] atrustheotaku's post) and I've disabled GM until further notice, or at least until 0.3.5 becomes compatible with Deer Park.

Oh man, I just found greasemonkeyed.com.  It's everything that the old wiki repository was not.  It's pretty, you can add scripts really easily, there's comments, reviews.  It has tags and a tag popularity system like technorati, there's script suggestions that get rated, oh what a wonderful site.  It's definitely my new hangout, it's really well put together.

Oh my word, the site's incredible.  Everything's DOM and Javascript, there's compeltely live searching, everything moves and shakes and it's really cool.  In a good way.
