Just a little bit geeky

Okay, i cheated because i did it earlier on today and only got about 30! There are about 90 in total. It’s quite surprising the ones you forget, when under pressure, where in every day usage you’d just use it when you needed it. And then there are some that you’ve never learnt and probably never want to use.

I am very pleased to learn that David Heinemeier Hansson will definitely be speaking at RailsConf Europe. Really looking forward to it!

I did some great programming today with nice visual effects. Drag and drop, expand collapse, highlight and fade, AJAX asynchronous updating. Javascript, Prototype and Script.aculo.us are really and truly rocking my world right now.

In other news, how does this make any sense?

In which parallel universe does this make sense?

A picture with 86 views, no favourites and 3 comments is more popular than a picture with 401 views, 1 favourite and 8 comments …? The only explanation i can think of is because the number 1 picture has a note that somebody added, in which case, Flickr notes are massively influential in your popularity ratings. Can anyone think of any other explanation?

I don’t have access to the stats because i’m not quite interested enough in Flickr to want to pay for it.

Yes, this has been a boring, geeky and unimportant post. You may now resume your wildly fascinating life! ;)

  1. I got 29:
    A, B, BLOCKQUOTE, BODY, BR, FORM, H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, H6, HEAD, HR, HTML, I, IMG, LI, LINK, META, OL, P, PRE, Q, S, STRIKE, TABLE, U, UL

    They’re the only ones I use, so you can guess I only use HTML for formatting text.

    As for Flickr and it’s descriptions, I find it useful in teaching English. Collect some intriguing pictures found under a search term, and ask the students to speculate what the term was and justify their choice.
