Fixed positioning in Mobile Safari

11/16/2010: It’s been a long time since my fixed positioning script was released. I’m very pleased that it was the precursor for much more robust solutions to this problem. Please continue on if you’d like to read through the history of this hack. If you’re looking for a real-world solution please take a look at [...]

Breaking out of a forEach loop

An email going around the client-side mailing list at Schematic casually mentioned forEach loops. The sender liked them, but tended to avoid them because there was no way to break out of one.
Naturally, this sent me on the hunt to see if it was at all possible. A furious Google search led me to a [...]

Flow 1.0.2

I just pushed release 1.0.2 out the door.
Bug fix:
Flow will no longer choke with SWFObject.
Early this morning I received a report about Flow not playing nicely with SWFObject. After debugging, it turned out it was a case of doing too much.
SWFObject correctly cleans up after itself in IE by removing its generated code on unload. [...]

Introducing Flow

This is a post I’ve been wanting to write for months now. For the past several months I’ve been spending my free time toiling over a personal project of mine.

Fumble U

So I’ve been hard at work on side projects and regular work, but not busy enough to continue my love affair with iPhone.
Hot on the heels of the Fumbleview beta release comes Fumble U. It suffers from the same quirky bugs as its big brother, but it’s very stable.
I had decided to wait until Fumbleview [...]

Support all mobiles? Start implementing standards and I will.

Prelude.
I’ll keep this short, as this comes down to very simple points.
I don’t block anyone from visiting Pickleview or Fumbleview. You can view it in any browser, mobile or desktop. I don’t sniff for iPhone, and lock out others. I don’t do any special CSS magic to block it from view. Rather, you get a [...]

30 (Yes, thirty) runs on Pickleview

I had to snap a few screenshots of this one. Today the Texas Rangers set a modern-day record by scoring an eye-popping 30 runs in a nine-inning ballgame. Worse news: It was game 1 of a doubleheader.

Fumbleview

The absolute #1 most hardcore requested feature for Pickleview wasn’t related to Pickleview at all. I received so many pleas for Pickleview: Football Edition, there really was no way I wasn’t going to do it.
Introducing Fumbleview. I’ve been hard at work on it for a few weeks now, but like its predecessor I am releasing [...]
