Make your timeline legible after a single user spams it
//just run this in the javascript console and you won't have to see that user's tweets until you leave or refresh the page!
function hideTweetsFromScreenName(s) {
var tweets = document.querySelectorAll('[data-screen-name='+s+']');
var length = tweets.length;
tweets[length].parentNode.hidden = true;

Twitter Timeline Manager
This javascript closure will create a timeline manager to let you filter
out users and keywords from your stream. In theory it stores the info
in a cookie for one day, but cookie setting appears to be not working currently.
The manager object has methods for showing a hidden username or keyword,
but currently no buttons to do so.
Keyword filtration is case sensitive and is done based on a single string
match on the tweet's content, it does not match usernames that might
runspired / complexInterval.js

setInterval() and setTimeout() don't fit all use cases. Additionally the last few releases of Firefox have sped up the interval to almost 50% the defined value e.g. `setTimeout('foo,5000);` will execute in 2500ms This provides a firefox shunt as well as allowing for the interval's delay to be adjusted, paused, and restarted
function complexInterval = function( fn , t ) {
var _delay = t? parseInt(t) : 0
, callback = fn
//stores the time of last callback execution for play/pause behavior and firefox shunt
, lastExecution = (new Date()).getTime()
//shunt for firefox, which executes setTimeout up to 50% early
, checkExecution = function(){ var time = (new Date()).getTime() - lastExecution; if (time >= _delay) return true; timeout = setTimeout( (function(){ once(); }), time ); }

3 Methods of determining whether a PHP script is executing as an included file.
One of the more common PHP questions I've encountered is how to determine whether the currently executing
script were included by another script or called directly. Often this question is coupled with AJAX / API
security. While none of the three methods below should be used to consider an AJAX or API request valid,
they will absolutely tell you whether the script was included.
//Method 1 : define a constant in the parent script, check for it in the possibly included script
runspired / chrome.fixed-relative-scale.js

Quick Javascript Fix for Google Chrome "scale elements with position relative/absolute within element with position fixed" bug.
Google Chrome fauls to resize the bounding box of elements with relative/absollute position that are within
fixed position elements. (Discovered this problem when making this page: )
This solution is for an 'em based' layout in which width needed to remain in ems in order to not break a scale-while-scroll
effect, but would work similarly for pixel and percent based layouts as well.
var isChrome = navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf('chrome') > -1

This code is to fix Microsoft TextRange object (IE8 and below), to give equivalent of
HTML5 Range object's startContainer,startOffset,endContainer and endOffset properties.
runspired / ember-data-embedded-save.js
Last active January 1, 2016 08:09
A method of saving / updating embedded records for ember.js and ember-data. This is probably NOT the best method, it's simply the best method I've come up with currently "as an adapter". It relies on calls to several store methods that should be private, and essentially turns a single save request into a save queue. This code could be altered to…
var DSA = {};
DSA.RESTAdapter = DS.RESTAdapter.extend({
Saves a newly created record, traverses and saves dirty related records
Currently Only belongsTo relationships are traversed
saveRecord : function(_store,type,record,initiator) {

Fighting Ember-Data to get a related record from the store.
When traversing record.eachRelationship in Ember-Data you
may want to actually look up and include the record if it
is already in the store.
Unfortunately, when dealing with records that are being saved
get(record,attribute) may or may not return the record even if
it is in the store.
If the ID were a temporary ember one (i.e. `<ember-234:null>`)
