A bookmarklet to reduce Reverb.com region rage

Having only recently started buying and selling music gear on Reverb.com, I have been struggling with a... shall we say "feature omission"? When a keyword is typed into the search field, the results are retrieved based on Seller Location of "Anywhere". To filter to a specific country it is necessary to click the "Change" link against Seller Location, then click the dropdown field to display the options, then select the country from the dropdown list (in my case having to scroll waaay down to "United Kingdom").

IOMAX USB 2.0 to IDE/SATA Adapter

This is by way of a product review combined with tech tip for anyone who might get caught out as I was.

I decided to scrap my all-singing, all-dancing PC from Red Submarine as by late 2010 I was no longer using the audio recording aspect and having replaced one of the system drives with a larger device and an XP install, it was running painfully slowly because the motherboard memory was limited to 512Mb.

Drupal.behaviours is undefined - divided by a common language?

Not for the first time I threw together a simple JQuery script to enhance a Drupal site and immediately hit a problem with Drupal.behaviours is undefined.

Many frustrated minutes later, the penny dropped: Drupal.behaviours is most certainly undefined. Drupal.behaviors should work just fine.

Beware the unconscious tendency for we Brits to use en_UK spelling!

iPod Touch iOS4 update problems

A little over a month ago I finally joined the millions of iPod owners by purchasing a 64GB iPod Touch. Between then and now I busied myself in ripping scores of my CDs onto my Mac Mini and thence synching that to the iPod.

Today when I connected the iPod up, iTunes asked me if I would like to install iOS4. OK I thought, why not?

Simple answer: because it might trash the whole thing and waste my evening.

Daft oversight having installed AddThis sharing module

Realising I should be more savvy in respect of sites like Facebook, and not just in the sense of actually joining (done, just), I tried out the AddThis module which promised automatically to add suitable buttons on to my content.

And so it did, but when I tested with Firefox 3.6 what happens when a visitor tries to share a node in Facebook before they are logged in, I got a surprise.

Creating a DATETIME View handler for Views2

Background

A couple of years ago I created a Drupal module to instantiate and process a content type for my own calendar of events. The "proper" Event module seemed too complicated (at least for a newbie as I then was) and anyway I wanted some practice at coding a module.

However I did take a look at Events and this is what prompted me to use DATETIME date columns in my schema declarations, because Event uses that datatype. At the time I wasn't aware that Event is about the only contributed module that does use DATETIME.
