Elephant on a trampoline!!!

Came across this on FFFFound.  Great ani-GIF of an elephant bouncing on a trampoline.  Not sure why it’s so damn cool…but it is.  LOVE the trunk floppin around!

Right-click menus for redesigned Facebook using Firefox!

August 13, 2008

With the recent redesign of Facebook, I’ve been getting questions regarding whether the add-on for Firefox is compatible with the newly redesigned version of Facebook.  After confiming over the last couple weeks with some of the ~500 daily users and the 2,000+ downloaders who have shared emails, the current version of UltimateFacebook is not only fully-compatible with Firefox 3 (and naturally Firefox 2), but also with the newly redesigned version of Facebook.  Install it by clicking here.

The add-on enables you to right-click any Facebook user and:

  • write on their wall
  • send them a message
  • poke them
  • add them to your friends
  • view their friends
  • see a thumbnail of them by rolling over their name in a news feed, photo gallery, etc
  • see how you connect to them
  • tag them
  • bookmark them – a.k.a ‘save them as a crush’ (invisibly — kept private)

ObjC Dictionary (NSMutableDictionary) for all of the States in the United States (U.S.) (US)

August 9, 2008

I’ve been teaching myself ObjC over the last 2 weeks and in one of the test projects I built, I ended up wanting to use a UITableView where an iPhone user could pick from a list of the states in the US.  I tried to Google for one out of laziness and then ended up finding the basic entries I needed in some old project PHP code.  Figured “sharing is caring” so here’s a simple NSMutableDictionary containing all of the states in the United States.  Enjoy.

NSMutableDictionary *dStates;
dStates = [[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects:@"AL - Alabama", @"AK - Alaska", @"AZ - Arizona", @"AR - Arkansas", @"CA - California", @"CO - Colorado", @"CT - Connecticut", @"DE - Delaware", @"DC - District of Columbia", @"FL - Florida", @"GA - Georgia", @"HI - Hawaii", @"ID - Idaho", @"IL - Illinois", @"IN - Indiana", @"IA - Iowa", @"KS - Kansas", @"KY - Kentucky", @"LA - Louisiana", @"ME - Maine", @"MD - Maryland", @"MA - Massachusetts", @"MI - Michigan", @"MN - Minnesota", @"MS - Mississippi", @"MO - Missouri", @"MT - Montana", @"NE - Nebraska", @"NV - Nevada", @"NH - New Hampshire", @"NJ - New Jersey", @"NM - New Mexico", @"NY - New York", @"NC - North Carolina", @"ND - North Dakota", @"OH - Ohio", @"OK - Oklahoma", @"OR - Oregon", @"PA - Pennsylvania", @"RI - Rhode Island", @"SC - South Carolina", @"SD - South Dakota", @"TN - Tennessee", @"TX - Texas", @"UT - Utah", @"VT - Vermont", @"VA - Virginia", @"WA - Washington", @"WV - West Virginia", @"WI - Wisconsin", @"WY - Wyoming", nil];

UltimateFacebook added to Softpedia and certified 100% Clean of Spyware, Adware and Viruses!

August 5, 2008

Woot!  Got an email from the folks at Softpedia!  They’ve just added and reviewed UltimateFacebook, the Mozilla Firefox add-on that makes using Facebook easier and more fun.  It’s beed certified to be 100% Clean of spyware, adware and viruses.  Very cool.  With several 1,000 people now using the add-on, it’s cool to see the social graph grow from the my graph of 200 or so friends in May to almost over 900,000 Facebook users in the graph today.
