I have been quite busy lately, ever since I have started working on Reblaze in the winter last year (2011).
We all wish to make the world (wide web) a better place. I think we have found a way to improve the web, to make it a better, safer and cleaner.
I guess we can be categorized under the SaaS tag, in fact, we are SaaS x2, we provide Software as a Service, as well as Security as a Service.
Visit us at reblaze.com and read all about, as well as add your site, it is free now, and so it will remain for all those who join during public beta.
Last night I released a new comprehenced version of jshotkeys. This plugin lets you easily add and remove handlers for keyboard events anywhere in your code supporting almost any key combination.
For example, to bind
Ctrl+C to a function
fn simply type:
$(document).bind('keydown', 'Ctrl+c', fn);
See the live demo.
just put both libraries on wordle to visualize on which each library have focused.
Here are the results:
From the announcement of the open source reddit:
There are only five of us who work on reddit; we couldn’t have made this site if it weren’t for a great community of developers. In no particular order, here’s a quick list of the open source products that reddit is built and runs upon: Debian, lighttpd, HAProxy, PostgreSQL, Slony-I, various python libraries, Psychopg, pylons, Solr, Tomcat, Ganglia, Mercurial, Git, gettext (translation), daemontools, and memcached.
Five people. 1,000,000’s of pages every day.
My friend has 73 friends and 152 Facebook applications.
IMHO, the layout is lack of usability and functionality.
Let alone the fact each application require other users to install them in to their accounts in order to view standard web content (images, flash, videos, etc.)
I am sure Facebook’s dudes need to rethink the whole concept and come up with something more sensible.
Plain and simple, the site is broken. Icons, texts, menus are overlapping each other.
Everyone can see now that every piece of DHTML code must be written twice, once for all the browsers, and then specifically for IE.
The unbearable lightness of releasing buggy software at MS is shocking.
The results are deployed here in front of your eyes.
