Everyones favourite closure!
View gist:940390
// everyone's new favorite closure pattern:
(function(window,document,undefined){ ... })(this,this.document);
// when minified:
(function(w,d,u){ ... })(this,this.document);
// which means all uses of window/document/undefined inside the closure
// will be single-lettered, so big gains in minification.
// it also will speed up scope chain traversal a tiny tiny little bit.

"iframe" sitedown fallback via <object>
View gist:985312
<!-- so it turns out that the object tag can act like an iframe
but the cool thing is you can nest object tags inside eachother for a fallback path.
what this means is you can "objectframe" a site.. and if it fails.. (site down, offline, whatever).. it'll use the next one.
so you can objectframe the live site and fallback to a screenshot.
or something.
