Software Developer's Combat Manual

I picked this up in 1997 at the Java Internet Business Expo. It was held at Javits in NY & I remember McNealy spouting something about the 1st 100 days of Java. I know it was invented earlier... I am just telling you the marketing crap I heard that day.

I looked on this morning & couldn't find it. If anyone has better luck, please comment.

Looks like I forgot to eat lunch one day. $13 in 97... eek!

Youtube Responses Helped along by Greasemonkey

I recently started playing with Greasemonkey under Firefox 2.0 & wrote this youtube video response viewer today. It is floating to towards the right side in this screenshot.

All responses in the chain are represented in a treeview. You can right-click launch the videos. Warning: It can be a pig on certain videos with lots of responses.

The script is also available on

The floating pane & treeview are from YUI. The integration with Greasemonkey is based on this YUI blog entry.

This video has multiple levels of responses & is a good test case to see if everything is working ok.
