Notes bookmarklet: Paste this into your browser's address bar (the separate lines will merge), then bookmark the resulting "page". You'll have a page with just a single, large textarea (which will have cursor focus). Just start typing whatever you want.

Due to the ubiquitous problem of tab overload, I need a way to remind myself what a browser window is for. I tried labelling tab groups in Chrome, but that gives me almost no space to work with. I thought I was going to have to install (and trust) an extension. So I was pleased to find a hack at the top of https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/use-browser-notepad/ I customized it a bit though.

Paste this into your browser's address bar (the separate lines will merge), then bookmark the resulting "page".

You'll have a page with just a single, large textarea (which will have cursor focus). Just start typing whatever you want.

It'll all disappear when you close the tab, which for my use case is a feature, not a bug.

A list of screen savers I saw fit to delete from my Mac after running a collection of Linux screen saver ports for over a year. The worst ones aren't included in this list because I deleted them before now. And there may be some you don't agree with deleting. But I only want to show the best of the best, and some of these have not aged well.

A checklist to help you apply the principles described in Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby to your code.

Class Cohesion (Single Responsibility Principle)

  • Pretend you're talking to a sentient instance of your class. Pretend each of its methods is a question you're asking it. Do those questions all make sense? ("Mr. Gear, what is your tire size?" probably does not.)
  • Describe the class's purpose in one sentence. If that sentence contains an "and" or an "or", it probably has more than one responsibility.
  • Classes should call their own attribute reader and writer methods instead of reading and writing instance variables directly. (Controllers might be an acceptable exception to this rule.)
  • Are there any complex data structures (2-dimensional arrays, etc.) that should be encapsulated in classes with named accessor methods?
  • Are there any methods with more than one responsiblity? If you break them down into smaller methods, the new methods may be self-documenting (through their names) and may reveal additional beneficial refactorings.
