Come In / Go Away


HeyShopping produce this I'm a Mac T-shirt for a while and now I decide to buy one. However, when I click the "Add to cart" item, it pops me this javascript error:

Error: missing ) after argument list
Source File: javascript:add_to_cart('3729','I'm a Mac (XL%E8%99%9F)','399',myform.buy_number_3729_2)
Line: 1, Column: 22
Source Code:
add_to_cart('3729','I'm a Mac (XL號)','399',myform.buy_number_3729_2)

Ok... looks like somebody doesn't handle string quoting at all. So what should I do now ? Contact them to fix this bug ? No. I hit the "shell bookmarklet" that has always been there on my Firefox personal toolbar, and type:

add_to_cart('3729',"I'm a Mac (XL號)",'399',myform.buy_number_3729_2)

Right, just change the bad string in the second argument to use double quote, and call that function. Alrighty, now the T-shirt is in my cart!

Ponder, didn't they ever wondering why the T-shirt doesn't sell as well as it should be ?

Labels: , 開始用 openid

| No Comments | No TrackBacks 是一個以 Catalyst 寫成的 Web 2.0 Application,它最近開始提供了以 OpenID 登入的能力。穿針引線的 Catalyst OpenID 外掛,則是由 miyagawa 寫的 Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Credential::OpenID

串連 Microsoft 各種應用的 .Net Passport 自然無法與之相比。但比起新興的 Google Auth、Flickr Auth 等等,OpenID 長久以來雖然一直讓大家興趣缺缺的感覺,不過該完成的事項都還是有完成。而現在也已經有不少支持它的網站 。如 Blog 元老的 LiveJournal、後起之秀的vox.comZoomrWikitravel、也已經有 phpBB 的外掛可用。(目前支援 OpenID 的系統,完整列表請點此詳閱之。)就算是 Yahoo,也可透過idproxy來產生與 Yahoo 使用者相對應的 OpenID URL。嗯 OpenID 的登入字串格式,要是一個 URL ,非常奇怪是也。

用雷射筆在大樓上亂畫畫。與前些年看見的 BlinkenLight 計畫有點相像。起碼拿大樓來「玩」的這個起點應該是一樣的。若以塗鴉者「愈難到達之地愈要下手」的精神比之,以整棟大樓牆面做畫實在極難。雖然所作之畫稍縱即逝,但在近遠處觀看作畫之過程,似乎是他們真正想要達成的一場表演。

Blogger's Markdown User-script

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

hlb這個作品修改了一下,接上showdown,效果不錯。原本就熟悉 markdown 的人,於是可以使用 markdown 來在 blogger 上寫文章了:hlb's blogger markdown

不過這東西需要使用 GreaseMonkey,也就是需要 Firefox 才可以使用。

使用 Safari的人,雖然可以裝 CreamMonkey來替代 GreaseMonkey,不過實際試過之後,無法成功地在 Blogger 寫文章的畫面中看見 toMakrdown 的連結,也就是說,不管用。
